LAUREL PARK 2020 WINTER SPRINTFEST STAKES: IN FOCUS

by  | Feb 14, 2020 | BreakingHandicappingTop Stories

 

Look for the following Parx Horses!!!

RACE 4 – POST TIME – 1:50 PM John B. Campbell S.  

Someday Jones – Trainer –  John Servis – ridden by Trevor McCarthy owned by Main Line Racing Stable & Alexandria Stable
Someday Jones (5/2)McCarthy’s pick over Wait for It, he won the Native Dancer Stakes last out going away, beating the other two favorites in this race. He’s run at least a 100 in three of his last four starts, with excellent pace figures. The only concern is that he’s gotten a pace to run at every time, and if Alwaysmining (or someone else) can slow down the tempo, this closer could get into trouble.
Forewarned – Trainer – Uriah St. Lewis – Jockey –  Anthony Salgado owned by Trin-Brook Stables, Inc.
Forewarned (10/1)Showing some impressive class lines, but was a complete non-factor in his tries against grade 1 horses last year. Got badly outkicked by Someday Jones when they faced each other in December. Once in a while pops up with a good effort, but I can’t bet on it.
RACE 5 – POST TIME – 2:18 PM Wide Country S.
  She’smysunshine – Trainer Herold Whylie Jockey – Angel Arroyo owned by Emerald Racing Stable
She’smysunshine (12/1)Got a great setup last out and won going away. It doesn’t look like she’s on an improving pattern, figure-wise, and I don’t think her best is good enough to beat these.
RACE 6 – POST TIME – 2:51 PM Miracle Wood S
Dreams Untold trained by John Servis owned by Someday Farm
Dreams Untold (5/2)If he broke his maiden by 14 lengths and earned a 98 brisnet figure at Gulfstream, Santa Anita, or Oaklawn, he’d be the latest Derby twitter darling. However, he did it at Parx, so he’s a bit under-the-radar coming into this race. If he wins this race, and he should, that could change.
New Commission trained/owned by Diane Day jockey –  Abner Adorno
New Commission (8/1)Backed up in the Withers Stakes after being on the pace. Now cuts back around one turn, where he’s excelled. Just missing pulling off a 14/1 upset in the Heft Stakes two starts back, where he rated off the pace and grinded on. What will he do here?
RACE 7 RUNHAPPY BARBARA FRITCHIE S. (GRADE III) POST TIME – 3:20 PM
Blue Eyed Girl trained by Marcos Zulueta , ridden by Alex Cintron & owned by Morris E. Kernan, Jr. & M-Z Racing Partnership

 

“Blue Eyed Girl (8/1)She’s got the early speed, she’s got the figures, and she’s won four of her last five. The only thing she doesn’t have is the class; this is her stakes debut. What to make of a horse like this? She could run them off their feet, but could also wilt if she gets a challenge from a better horse. Has to be used in multi-race bets, but I can’t tell if she’s classy enough for the win.”
