Dynamic Lisa on same path

ELMONT, N.Y. - With an eye on the Yaddo Handicap at Saratoga on Aug. 18, trainer Scott Schwartz will run Dynamic Lisa in Wednesday's third race at Belmont Park, an optional claimer with a purse of $50,000.

Last year on July 20, Dynamic Lisa won a New York-bred allowance race at one mile on Belmont's Widener turf course. In her next start, she won a division of the restricted Yaddo Handicap at Saratoga by five lengths.

Schwartz is hoping for a duplication of those efforts, starting with Wednesday's mile turf race for fillies and mares.

Seven horses were entered, plus one, Honor Point, for the main track only. She's Vested, running for a $75,000 tag, is the only horse in the field eligible to be claimed.

, owned by Schwartz's father, Herbert, and stepmother, Carol, has run three times this year. Her best effort came in her last start, when she finished fourth in a division of the restricted Mount Vernon Handicap on June 20. Dynamic Lisa was beaten less than two lengths by the winner, Brandala.

"She's starting to rebound," Scott Schwartz said. "She came off the farm during the winter pretty heavy. I thought her last race was a much-improved effort and this is a good spot for her. When she is right, she's pretty good."

Shaun Bridgmohan rides Dynamic Lisa, who drew post 7.

, one of two 3-year-olds in the field, has won four of six starts this year. One of those wins came in Delta Sensation's turf debut in an overnight stakes at Belmont on May 27. She also finished fourth on the grass in the Grade 3 Sands Point Handicap here on June 14.

A good effort in this spot could lead Delta Sensation's trainer, Frank Alexander, to consider the Grade 3 Lake George for 3-year-old fillies at Saratoga on Aug. 2.

Jorge Chavez rides Delta Sensation from post 3.

She's Vested gets a rider switch to the meet's leading jockey, John Velazquez. In her last start, seven days ago, She's Vested made up ground in the stretch to finish sixth in a slowly run allowance race at Monmouth Park. A return to Belmont, where She's Vested won a mile race in the spring, should be a plus for the mare. She also figures to get a quicker pace, with front-runners Letthefreedomroar and Ma Femme in the field.

Lady Libby, who has been in good form this year, finished second to Brandala in the Mount Vernon. Expect Nothing completes the field.
