Unbridled Rhapsody looks much the best

EmailHandicappers may have a hard time looking past Unbridled Rhapsody in the $55,000 Irish Sonnet at Delaware Park.

Unbridled Rhapsody destroyed a field of maidens at Monmouth Park by nearly 11 lengths when she was stretched out to a mile, the distance of the Irish Sonnet. She is the lone horse in a field of eight 2-year-old fillies to have raced around two turns. It also doesn't hurt that she is trained by Todd Pletcher and is favorably drawn on the rail.

Pedigree players hunting for value, however, might do well to take a look at Halcyon and Erin's Golden Star.

Halcyon finished far back in an overnight sprint stakes on Aug. 25, but three of her four rivals that day came back to win their next start, including Proud Spell, who captured last Saturday's Matron at Belmont Park.

In addition, Halcyon's dam, Timely Broad, showed an affinity for Delaware Park routes, finishing second in the Delaware Oaks and third in the Delaware Handicap.

Erin's Golden Star stretches out from five furlongs after winning her career debut at Philadelphia Park. Her sire, Cat Thief, displayed the talent to go long early in his career, finishing second going 1 1/16 miles in the Grade 2 Breeders' Futurity and third in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile.
