Older Males

1. Shared Belief – He still sits atop this division because no other horse can string together consecutive wins. Hopefully he’s healing up well.

2. California Chrome – Out for the remainder of 2015, however he will return in 2016.

3. Honor Code – Has been great in one turn races so the Whitney is going to be a test.

4. Noble Bird – Rising star in the game right now, and recently had a strong workout at Saratoga.

5. Lea – Has finished second three straight times, but all three have come against top notch competition.

Sleeper: Coach Inge – Won the Brooklyn, and then ran a tremendous race in the Suburban Handicap.

Older Females

1. Beholder – Finally came back to the track and was tremendous! Really hoping she can stay healthy the rest of the year.

2. Untapable – Doesn’t look to be the same filly as last year, but hopefully Asmussen gets her right

3. Stopchargingmaria – She never is impressive, but she just keeps winning races.

4. Wedding Toast – Consistent runner took down Untapable last time out.

5. Sheer Drama – Turned the tables on Frivolous last in the Delaware Handicap. Might be ready to make some noise.

Sleeper: Judy the Beauty – Returns this week at Saratoga against a solid field.

3 Year Old Males

1. American Pharoah – The champion returns this Sunday in the Haskell at Monmouth Park!

2. Dortmund – Was undefeated coming into the Triple Crown races, and didn’t embarrass himself in either race. Has returned to the workout tab.

3. Frosted – Will be kicking off the second half of the year this Saturday in the Jim Dandy Stakes.

4. Firing Line – He’s out for the remainder of the year which is really sad to hear.

5. Carpe Diem – Recently retired and will undoubtedly be passed in the rankings.

Sleeper: Speighster – Defeated Texas Red easily in the Dwyer Stakes. How far can he go, and where will we see him next?

3 Year Old Female

1. Lady Eli – An amazing performance as she destroyed the field in the Belmont Oaks. Terrible news that she now has laminitis…future is in question.

2. I’m a Chatterbox – She hit the wire first in the Coaching Club American Oaks, but was DQ’d in what was a questionable call.  Her body of work is just a little stronger than Curalina right now.

3. Curalina – Got the win in the Coaching Club American Oaks by DQ over I’m a Chatterbox which makes her a dual Grade 1 winner.  Sky is the limit for this one.

4. Lovely Maria – The Kentucky Oaks still gives her a big boost and she can pass Curalina and I’m a Chatterbox with a win over them this summer.  However, her Delaware Oaks effort was not good.

5. Stellar Wind – Very courageous effort at Santa Anita to win the Summertime Oaks. Could be ready for a big second half of the year.

Sleeper: Include Betty – Solid effort to finish third in the Coaching Club American Oaks…keeps proving she’s solid.


1. Secret Circle – Awesome win in Dubai…horse is a warrior.

2. Salutos Amigos – Stellar comeback tells me he’s ready for a huge summer campaign.

3. Private Zone – Super consistent…brings his front running speed every single time.

4. Masochistic – Simply awesome performance in the Triple Bend at Santa Anita, and ran another good race in the Bing Crosby.

5. Work All Week – Wouldn’t give up on him yet. Ran a better race in the Smile Sprint than you might think.

Sleeper: Wild Dude – Like previously stated…when at his best he can beat anyone.
