Finger Lakes: Scary Trip looks tough

EmailBoth hunch players and Beyer Figure devotees are likely to land on the same horse in the $50,000 Finger Lakes Juvenile, the track's final stakes of the season.

Scary Trip, a son of Trippi out of the mare Hallow Wean, will be running just three days after the October holiday. More importantly, he comes off a win worth a 79 Beyer, the fastest number in a field of nine, and has won 3 of his 4 starts, all at Delaware Park.

The most serious threat to Scary Trip looks like Tin Cup Chalice, who crushed nine other maidens, earning a 71 Beyer, in his career debut, which came over a sloppy track less than two weeks ago. Tin Cup Chalice is by Crusader Sword, who won the Grade 1 Hopeful and Grade 2 Saratoga Special at 2.

The field also includes Say Toba Sandy, who upset the Finger Lakes Juvenile Filly at 59-1 three weeks ago, and Barossa, a dominant winner in two of his last three starts.
