What the Nation is saying about the Honorable Miss...

Sometimes a horse catches my eye just because it has a name that I like... In the case of Dance to Bristol, it was a combination of many things: name, color, and breeding.Read More
With a relentless charge between horses inside the eighth pole, 4-5 favorite Dance to Bristol ran down Classic Point in the final strides to win the Grade 2, $200,000 Honorable Miss Handicap by a neck on Monday at Saratoga Race Course. Read More
Classic Point might be taking a large step up in class on Monday in the Grade 2 Honorable Miss Handicap, but the 4-year-old is certainly in capable hands. Read More
Scourge of Mid-Atlantic tracks the past two years, 4-year-old filly Dance to Bristol lately has had her sights set on bigger game, and she will make her Saratoga Race Course debut Monday as the 5-2 morning-line favorite in the Grade 2, $200,000 Honorable Miss Handicap, a six-furlong sprint for filli...Read More

After a long drive to begin Saratoga-Fort Erie Road Trip ’12, I arrived at my hotel just in time to place a small bet on the Grade 2 Honorable Miss. Foreseeing a pace meltdown of nuclear proportions, I was looking forward to betting the Ian Wilkes trained, Island Bound. A confirmed rallier, I believ...Read More
C C’s Pal surged past It’s Me Mom and the other exhausted front-runners in the stretch to win the 21st running of the Grade 2, $200,000 Honorable Miss Handicap at Saratoga on Friday. Read More
Having run at five different tracks in her past five starts, the 5-year-old mare Island Bound is a stakes-seeking mercenary. Last year, she roamed from oval to oval, too, but it?s no longer at the $30,000 claiming level. Read More
Michael Aro might not be a name a lot of race fans recognize, but the 55-year-old trainer has been a pretty good sleeper over the years at Saratoga. In the late 1990s, he shipped in to the Spa four years in a row, winning each time with a tough claimer named Champagne for Lisa. Read More
Among those pointing to next Friday’s Grade 2, $200,000 Honorable Miss is the well-traveled 5-year-old mare Island Bound, a former claimer who earned her first graded stakes victory on June 2 when she rallied from seventh to win the Grade 3 Winning Colors at Churchill Downs.Read More
According to the NYRA condition book, “The Racing Secretary must assign at least 140 pounds to the top-weighted horse in this event.” Read More

  • RyanBrady · Sunrise Smarty is my pick in this race, because he is not "The Highweight", and his early speed on the Aqueduct racetrack (Main or Inner) is as dangerous as they come. If Todd Pletcher leaves one of his in the race rather than opting for The Grade 1 Cigar Mile on Saturday then they will be the ones to beat on paper. One of the nicer editions of this race in recent years. · 877 days ago ·
