Rothko ready to fire fresh shot in Vosburgh

Saturday's 7th race (4:04pm ET) from Belmont Park is the Grade 1 Vosburgh for 3-year-olds and up traveling six furlongs on the main track. 

#6 Rothko (6-1) was chewed up on the pace in the muddy G1 Vanderbilt at the Spa Aug 5. His last two wins were accomplished off a freshening at six panels and Leparoux has booted him home twice. He worked here Sept 25 and appears poised to fire a big tactical shot at playable odds.

#5 Fort Loudon (6-1) must prove himself against older but he is 5-for-5 at 6f and finally ran a good race away from Calder in the G1 King's Bishop.

#1 Sean Avery (7-2) scooted away in his first start off a long layoff Sept 8. He adores 6f and has not finished out of the Exacta since '09.Obvious threat if he can avoid a bounce.

#1a The Lumber Guy (7-2) is lightly raced and dangerous around one turn. The fresh sophomore has the speed to succeed.  

#9 Justin Phillip (3-1) usually falls short in the Graded ranks and is 1-for-13 on a fast track. He likes Big Sandy and moves up on wet ground but is probably best used underneath if it is dry on Saturday. 

The Plays:

$12 to win #6

$3 Exacta Box 5-6 ($6)

$3 Exacta 5-6/1-9 ($12)

Speed is speed and knows no age as it is genetic. You can't rain speed as it is in the fast twitch nerve endings.

Having said that, Caxia is one of the best closers of the bunch

weasy thought that Caxia was all over the map: late, Sustained/Presser, Sustained, Late...only ran one early/presser in the last ten starts.

Justin Phillip; 9,2,1,7

I hate betting races with Caixa in there! He is SO unpredictable...... The Lumber Guy is coming off a four month layoff against older horses. The one turn is for him though. I don't think I'll bet this one at all.... I'll watch it and root for Avery.

Sean Avery and Caixa Eletronica look formidable

pace wise, Rothko is no where early and nowhere late

Mixed feelings about this one, Entry looks a possibility if both go. Fort Loudon is adaptable, and Justin Phillips comes from the clouds, maybe too short at 6 furlongs. VERY evenly matched field and will have to wait until the track and odds board speak up.
