Parx pairing out for stakes double

Email

Trainer Ramon Preciado and owner William Hartwell have a good shot at sweeping both $75,000 stakes for Pennsylvania-bred sprinters on Saturday’s card at Parx Racing.

Preciado and Hartwell will send out defending champion Jemilyn in the seven-furlong Foxy J.G. for fillies and mares (race 9) and the sharp 4-year-old Golddigger’s Boy in the seven-furlong Lyman Handicap (race 8).

The 6-year-old Jemilyn is the track’s morning-line 2-1 favorite in a field of seven for the Foxy J.G. Much like last year, when she romped by 5 1/2 lengths in the Foxy J.G. while making her second start of the season, Jemilyn will be making the second start of her current form cycle on Saturday. She comes back 11 days after finishing third against open company in the $75,000 Langhorne, her first start since early January. In addition to the 2010 Foxy J.G., Jemilyn captured the $150,000 HBPA Distaff going 1 1/16 miles in September.

The prime challengers to Jemilyn appear to be Outlaw Dancer and Hygh Jacque. Outlaw Dancer, winner of the restricted seven-furlong Caught in the Rain as a 3-year-old last season, will be making her first start since mid-August. Hygh Jacque, based at Penn National with trainer Mike Salvaggio, has been first or second in her last six starts, dating back to August.

The task for Golddigger’s Boy, who is a neck shy of being 3 for 3 in his most recent races, will be more difficult. A three-length winner going a mile in a second-level allowance last time out on March 12, Golddigger’s Boy must deal with the red-hot Movin’ Out, who owns a 10-for-21 lifetime record at Parx.

Movin’ Out, a 6-year-old trained by Keith Lebarron, earned a career-best 96 Beyer Speed Figure for his wire-to-wire, three-length score in the $75,000 Bensalem on March 15. The versatile Movin’ Out, 8-5 on the track’s morning line, will be facing statebreds for the first time since winning the $100,000 PHBA Classic going 1 1/16 miles last September. He was second, beaten a neck, in the 2009 Lyman.

The six-horse field includes Tejanos Eliminator, who was second in last year’s Lyman, and the 2008 Lyman winner Whistle Pig.

Tejanos Eliminator was well-beaten by Movin’ Out twice last year and has been off since mid-October.

The 7-year-old Whistle Pig won four statebred stakes in 2008, including the Lyman, and was third in the same race, 1 1/2 lengths behind Movin’ Out in the 2009 running.
