Most Likely Winner: (Race 3: Curlin’s Voyage #1, 7/5):

Some might think that the venerable Pink Lloyd in Race 9 might be the “Most Likely…” but I beg to differ. Look instead at Curlin’s Voyage #1. This is a short field of 6 fillies, and I realize that Merveilleux #2 is going to give her all she can handle. I think her class and stamina will be her greatest assets, and I would expect her to rebound off the losses in the Queen’s Plate and the Wonder Where Stakes. Curlin’s Voyage is a win, plain and simple. No. 1 will be just that…

Wager: $100 Win #1

 

Off-the-Pace Play of the Day: (Race 10: Boardroom #2, 10/1):

Josie Carroll has spent time putting Boardroom #2 through her paces for this race, since she ran a cracking good one last out in the Duchess 100k @WO. This sophomore has 3 wins out of 4, and once again she gets Luis Contreras aboard. Her level of fitness speaks to the fact that she can handle this class jump to a G2. I like a horse on the make, that many will not back because they are unproven. This is precisely why it is time to promote Boardroom. If Contreras can find a spot mid-pack, that should give her a great chance to win. If she is 10/1 at post that will be a more than fair price.

Spotlight Race of the Day: (Race 8: AW 1 1/8th, Ontario Derby (G3), 125k, 3):

A competitive field of 8 draws in for this G3 affair on the AW @WO. Field Pass #1 and Belichick #2 will vie for favoritism, but Malibu Mambo #8 has the right stuff in this situation. His front-end running style makes him a dangerous threat. If jockey Justin Stein can get to the lead, then it may well be over. Kevin Attard has had a magnificent year conditioning, so this would be the icing on the cake. I know what you might be thinking… Leaving out Queen’s Plate hero, Mighty Heart #6? It might be my undoing, but I think his best race is behind him. Will see…

Wager: Exacta Box: 1/2/8
