Northlands Park: Seeyouonbroadway looks strong in claimer


Seeyouonbroadway held her own when she tried the top older fillies and mares at Northlands Park in the $50,000 Madamoiselle on Aug. 1. She could be tough to handle when she runs in a $30,000 claiming race for fillies and mares that headlines Wednesday’s nine-race card. The one-mile feature drew seven horses and goes as the eighth race.

Trained by Tim Rycroft, Seeyouonbroadway forced a moderate pace before tiring late to finish fourth in the Madamoiselle. With her tactical speed, she figures to be sitting just off what should be an honest-enough pace. In her previous start July 6, she won a $20,000 claiming race by two lengths over Hardcore Candy. In the one-mile race, she stalked Hardcore Candy for six furlongs before taking over the lead at the top of the stretch. Seeyouonbroadway has improved since she finished a distant sixth in her first start at the meet in a $20,000 claiming sprint May 22. She won her next start going six furlongs in a $10,000 claiming race and prior to her win July 6, she finished a fast-closing third in a $15,000 claiming race at 6 1/2 furlongs.

Salsa Express looks like the main threat off her second to Inca Beauty in a similar race Aug. 13. Trained by Ernie Keller, Salsa Express rallied but couldn’t catch Indy Beauty, who was forwardly placed in the one-mile race for $30,000 claimers. Salsa Express won seven times in 2010 but in five starts this year she has finished second twice and third three times. She has won 11 races in her career, but just one of her wins came at a middle distance in the $25,000 Idaho Cup Distaff Derby at Boise in 2008. That race was restricted to horses bred in Idaho. Nonetheless, she is on top of her game right now and should have a realistic pace to launch her rally.

Raebella and Malakwa figure to be involved early.

Beauregard nearly ready to ride

Shannon Beauregard hasn’t ridden since she was injured while schooling a 2-year-old on the morning of Aug. 19. According to her agent, Bob Fowlis, Beauregard is hoping to get cleared to ride when she sees her doctor this week.

“She has symptoms associated with a concussion,” Fowlis said.

Last year, Beauregard finished second in the jockey standings at Northlands with 79 wins. Before being injured, she had 30 wins at the current meet.
