Clement, Mott in the house


MIAMI - Trainers Christophe Clement and Bill Mott, both staunch supporters of the Tropical at Calder meeting the past several years, make their presence felt here for the first time this season in sending in Born Something and Young Star, respectively, from Payson Park to run in the second and tougher division of Saturday's Good Intentions Stakes.

Both divisions of the Good Intentions are for fillies and mares at one mile on the turf and offer a purse of $35,000.

The Clement-trained Born Something has gone off the public choice in each of her last six starts and will likely do so again on Saturday, as she is coming off a second-place finish in the West Virginia President's Cup Handicap at Mountaineer on Aug. 9. She has rewarded the chalk-players with three victories in that span, including a two-length win over second-level allowance competition in her only previous south Florida appearance, at Gulfstream Park on April 5.

The Mott-trained Young Star also won a second-level allowance race last winter at Gulfstream, but has been slower than Born Something to move forward into stakes competition. She finished a tiring seventh in her only previous stakes start, Belmont Park's restricted Via Borghese on Sept. 10.

The stretch-running Hermans Honor and What a Price appear the best of the locals in the second division, which drew a field of 11, including Scottish Bubbly, who was entered for dirt only.

Hermans Honor rallied to win the Precious Feather and Mia's Hope stakes on the grass within a three-week span in July. What a Price has been stakes-placed in each of her last three starts, but has not run since being beaten a neck by Hermans Honor as the 6-5 favorite in the Precious Feather.

She's Vested, a game second behind Lost Appeal in the Holy Capote Stakes on Sept. 14, might hold a slight edge in the first division of the Good Intentions. Lost Appeal flattered that effort when she returned to run second against males in the Flying Pidgeon Handicap in her next start.

Vidlocity, who finished fourth in her last two stakes starts on grass, might prove the one to beat, as she will be facing vastly weaker competition.

Gypsy Dot figures to stand some catching after setting the early pace against much tougher in the Calder Oaks.

Both Stormy Frolic and Me Gotta Go, a pair of speedsters, were entered for dirt only in the first division of the Good Intentions.

With the switch to Eastern Standard Time, 12 races are carded Saturday, compared to the 13-race programs that had been standard here throughout the meeting.
