 On the 15th a field of eight equally matched two year old colts will travel eight furlongs on the Woodbine.

#1- Bear's Furr- The likely pacesetter gets a favorable post. He has connections who are capable to win the race. Last out in the Colin he almost fell out of the money. But he got bumped, as of not watching the Colin I am not sure if that is why, so he might be able to reach 8 furlongs, or maybe not.

#2- Best Play- This mighty youngster never gave up in his debut. Despite falling 15 lengths behind, he rallied and came in second. Now, he has the service of great jockey, Javier Castellano and added distance to help his favor. He didn't catch Indiano Jones, but I think he has a nice shot at him this time for sure.

#3- I'm Boundtoscore- As a two year old he is a very safe pick. Never out of money in four lifetime starts. He is improving steadily and should like the added distance, although you never know. He ran a very good second last out in a five furlong stakes race.

#4- Archer Hill- Son of Big Brown and seems to be a very good looking colt who will have no trouble at all with the distance.

#5- Are You Kidding Me- Last out he won his first on turf. But the pace was slow at seven and he barely hung on. I don't see him being able to hang on at this distance, but maybe he can hit the board.

#6- Two B's and E's- A very intriguing colt who has plenty upside. Last out at Belmot he romped a field of maidens off their feet at seven furlong. He is crying for more distance so he can run away more, now he gets another furlong. Also, veteran jockey Garrett Gomez and good trainer Wesley Ward are all star connections in this field. (I think he is the "Best Play" But I wanted my Play of the Day title to be catchy :)

#7-Mercenary- Outmatched. But he's two so who knows.

#8- Indiano Jones- Good colt with good connections. Last out he ran well. I like him, but I don't think that he can hold off other late movers.

PICKS: Best Play $5 WPS, Two B's an E, $10 WPS. Indiano Jones $5 P

PICKS: Exacta Box with the three above^

A horse won the race helped by the journeyman Sarah Rook, no big names helped here, the horse did. Local rider runs second and the irrelevant BIG names ride the HORSES that finished 4th and 5th
3 goes from flag fall to that's all at 10/1, 5 second?
RIGHT now the one is a huge overlay at 15/1...1,3 4 look better, but at those odds it may be worth a shot
FLASH: at the seminare this morning at Woodbine, the group evaluating this weekend's racing wanted ALL to KNOW that lane one will be opne tomorrow for the Mile (it has nt been used in weeks and is fresh ground) and land 2 will be used today. They said to watch where the closers are moving FROM as tomorrow it will be different most likely
Yes Cause for concern. Jocks will make a big difference in this race.
Interestingly nice play. But, you know, it's got to be the jockeys. They''re 90% of the race. Can't go wrong with Castellano, Gomez, and Husbands!!!!!
Now if the ODDS say so, let's say 4/1 or higher, the rail horse would be an interesting choice here, and/or how the turf is playing. Like I said babies do not have the same racing style as the same horses 1- 1/2 years later
The "over comensation" angle always gets people in trouble. BECAUSE my horse had a difficult run in such and such a race, HE IS BOUND to do better. This one is so full of holes as many an animal create their own trouble and carry it around with them race to race. Marfa, Gate Dancer just to name two.
longshot play is the one
It was a very hard race to handicap, TV. I have a great amount of confidence with my two main horses. I rarely bet like this for two year old colts, but last week I had a big week, so I mean I said, why not?
You really cannot figure who is going to take to the green their first few outings, but overall the 2 4 5 stand out here as having, SO FAR, the best profile to handle both the distance and the surface.Many pace casualties here....including the 8, IF they run like the turfers their connections want them to be. Overall Most babies don't get GOOD on the green this young. 7 and 8 go to the front and try to hold on, while this trio, aforementioned, makes big strides late. That stretch is the LONGEST in North America, so big late moves have a long time to come to fruition, BUT, babies rarely attune themselves to turf running this young to unless there are very nice odds offered, it might be best just to watch this one.
