Calder analysis for 9/27
Best Bet: SPIRITED MARKET (1st race)
1. SPIRITED MARKET 2. DANCING GATE 3. MONARQUICA
SPIRITED MARKET, the day's best, proved match for speedy, rail skimming Sunshine Dreamer who rode the inside bias to popular win for higher tag 17 days ago. Drops to more suitable spot, should not look back if able to handle the added ground. DANCING GATE was shuffled back to last early, finished well from the deep going near the rail under similar conditions and the one to fear if able to secure better early position from her inside post. MONARQUICA rode the outside bias to a second place finish at 58-1 when coming up tagged for the first time and will not offer that same kind of value facing similar today.
1. AMY N JILL 2. LUCKY SO FAR 3. SIGANA
AMY N JILL from a wonderful turf family. Is a full to both Final Approval and To Be Approved each of whom won their turf debuts here in the mid-90's. Work tab suggests she may be fit enough to handle the route despite being absent for over a year. Worth a look at what figures to be a fair price. LUCKY SO FAR may have been best in her only previous grass try when unable to overcome a poor start. Made lead in early stretch only to be picked up late. Ran against bias last out on the main. SIGANA showed promise in her two turn turf debut despite unlucky start and racing greenly. Another bred for the going being kin to both Winfama and Alyfama.
1. HEART IN HAND 2. BRIANSONFIRE 3. WAVERING MARCI
HEART IN HAND lost best chance when pilot blew an iron on far turn dropping into this category off a four month layoff. Stretch runner should move forward off the effort, can run these down on her top stuff with a little help up front. BRIANSONFIRE looking to post back to back victories for the second time this season. Turned trick at Hialeah on 16 days rest during the spring now wheels back from almost a similar layoff against same kind she ran away from late here two weeks ago. WAVERING MARCI dueled, held game to be second behind preferred choice in pair's previous meeting and again likely to face early challenges this time from See U AT My Window and stretch out sprinter Buffett.
1. ELEGANT RIANNA 2. DIABLO'S DONNA 3. ADLIB
ELEGANT RIANNA dueled, dropped to dead rail and faltered late in promising 3-year-old debut. Need only move forward off that try to lead these a merry chase. DIABLO'S DONNA was hard used contesting pace, faltered late after showing top stuff making four wide late run in previous outing. ADLIB split next out winners Amelia Air and Lydia A. when ground saving second in relatively well graded seven furlong dash.
1.IWRITETHESONGS 2. SU FAMA 3. ALL BEST WISHES
IWRITETHESONGS comes off much needed outing when racing far back over speed and inside biased track. Moves to the lawn for the first time and bred for the going being a half to first out turf winner Stormy Sonata. Catches field lacking much in the way of any early speed. Might not look back if able to get loose from the hedge. SU FAMA another daughter of outstanding turf producing mare Fama. Proved her ability to win off the bench when overcoming poor start to graduate in her career debut. ALL BEST WISHES had little excuse uner similar conditions in her last appearance but hard to leave out of the equation at this level.
1. TRUE STORM 2. SPIRITUAL JOURNEY 3. WILD GOOSE
Third time might be a charm for TRUE STORM who should appreciate drop in class, turn back in distance after being hard used contesting pace into stretch against stronger going seven furlongs over wet track earlier this month. Velasquez stays on for one more look. SPIRITUAL JOURNEY debuts on the bottom for outfit that has unleashed several low priced first out maiden winners this year. Last two works should make him competitive in this spot. WILD GOOSE raced along a dead rail, faltered late debuting against better bunch of bottom priced rivals. Should benefit from the experience and switch to an outside gate.
1. Caernacopia 2. Jeb's Lucky Girl 3. Erin Of Wicklow
CAERNACOPIA comes off her best yet since arriving locally, an against the bias third on turn back to seven furlongs. Toss local route bow when losing best chance stumbling at the break. Has proven her mettle around two turns in the past. Might loom upset threat in a wide open affair. JEB'S LUCKY GIRL sharp now and with the right running style in a field loaded with speed. ERIN OF WICKLOW broke very slow, never menaced shortening up to a sprint now stretches out and may prove speed of the speed from the rail.
1. FAMILY TIES 2. COULD BE ME 3. HUNTING WILD
FAMILY TIES returns to conditioned claiming ranks where along with Mr Wooly he is the only four time winner in the field. Just missed against tough, older wide open company in his last and does have the ability to win from off pace as evidenced by stakes win in the Hooting Star here last fall. COULD BE ME the one pure closer in a field full of speed types. Earned 65 Beyer beating N2L foes from far back on Aug. 11, that number as good as any of the major contenders have posted at this distance. HUNTING WILD might take advantage of all the speed, come running late on turn back to six furlongs off series of longer runs.
1. UP TO WIN 2. MOM'S APPEAL 3. GOOD DANCING
UP TO WIN has been victimized by drawing the inside post, breaking slow in four of her last five sprint outings now moves outside and with a cleaner beginning should trip out well off a field loaded with speed. MOM'S APPEAL returns from a brief but successful invasion of N Y although returns against older horses for just the second time in her career. GOOD DANCING always give a good account but facing prospect of getting locked in along the rail with speedsters Hold Her Wager(off slow, parked very wide in her last) Fly Me Crazy and Duel To The End breaking to her immediate outside.
1. STUTZ GREYHAWK 2. COOL N STORMY 3. COMEONTHREE
STUTZ GREYHAWK'S 3/31 half mile gate work earlier this month should make him good enough to earn his diploma at first asking against this weak group of older bottom priced maiden claimers. COOL N STORMY getting the look of a classic follower even when he breaks with the field. COMEONTHREE another firster who demands respect launching career at this level.
