A Vision in Gray's Big M start will end busy day for Ritchey


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Tim Ritchey is facing a busy weekend with horses running Saturday in stakes at Belmont Park, Laurel, Keeneland, Delaware Park, Philadelphia Park, and The Meadowlands Racetrack.

"It will be six stakes in six states in one day," Ritchey said.

The $60,000 Ready Jet Go Stakes under the Big M lights will be the final leg of Ritchey's marathon day. He entered A Vision in Gray in the six-furlong race for fillies and mares.

, 5, finished seventh last time out in the Grade 3 Endine Handicap at Delaware Park on Sept. 10. Her previous effort, also at Delaware, was a solid second in an allowance race.

"She just didn't run her race [last out]," Ritchey said. "The race before, she ran real well. In the last race, she didn't break very well. She had her head turned in the gate and kind of rushed out of there. She never finished like she should."

has the best recent stakes credentials in the field. She won the My Juliet Stakes at Philadelphia Park, then was second in the Honorable Miss and third in the Endine.

The Ready Jet Go will be a test for Gipsy Limits. A former claimer, she has steadily worked through her allowance conditions and now takes the stakes plunge.

Trained by Derek Ryan, Gipsy Limits was very sharp in her last two starts, allowance races at Monmouth Park. She was a commanding winner two starts back and missed by only a nose last time out.

should find this race a better class fit after racing in the Grade 2 Honorable Miss Handicap at Saratoga, where she contested the pace between rivals before fading to sixth.

Her previous race was a strong second, missing by a nose, in Monmouth's West Long Branch Stakes.

Summer Sting vs. Totally Precious

Summer Sting was seemingly home free when she opened up a three-length lead in the Eleven North Handicap at Monmouth on Sept. 17. The margin, while substantial, was not enough to enable Summer Sting to hold off a late charge by Totally Precious.

A rematch is set for Saturday, in the $55,000 Queen Lib Handicap for New Jersey-bred fillies and mares at six furlongs.

The race has become a fall fixture for Totally Precious, even though the distance has changed. She was second, beaten three-quarters of a length last year, when the race was run at a mile and 70 yards.

Summer Sting races as an entry with Pickin Laurel, a statebred allowance winner in her last race, from the Kevin Sleeter barn.
