Older Males

1. Honor Code – Two huge Grade 1 wins in a row against tough fields! He’s earned the top spot and proved he can go two turns now.

2. Shared Belief – It doesn’t look like he’ll be back in 2015 which is a real shame.

3. California Chrome – Out for the rest of the year, but his future could be bright in 2016.

4. Liam’s Map – An incredible performance in the Whitney and some will argue it should have been a winning effort. Huge talent who might be perfect at a mile.

5. Tonalist – He is what he is…a very good horse that just hasn’t quite been good enough to take home a big time race this year. Consistent on the board finisher.

Sleeper: The Pizza Man – How cool is this horse? Won the Arlington Million in his own back yard as the local crowd went crazy.

Older Females

1. Beholder – She locked up this division with a performance in the Pacific Classic that was almost too good to believe!

2. Stopchargingmaria – Took care of Untapable while winning the Shuvee Handicap at Saratoga, and could to it again this weekend.

3. Wedding Toast – We haven’t seen her since her impressive win on Belmont Stakes day.

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

5. Untapable – Still running decent races however its painfully clear she’s not the same horse right now.  Will try again at Saratoga this Saturday.

Sleeper: La Verdad – Her sprinting ability is better than any filly right now.

3 Year Old Males

1. American Pharoah – Returns this week in the Travers Stakes!

2. Dortmund – Back on the workout tab, and looks to be getting closer to a race.

3. Frosted – Takes his shot at American Pharoah and Texas Red this weekend in the Travers Stakes.

4. Texas Red – Huge win in the Jim Dandy, and could jump up to the #2 spot with another big effort in the Travers Stakes.

5. Keen Ice – Also pointing towards the Travers Stakes, and could pass some of these above him with a nice showing.

Sleeper: Upstart – His Haskell performance wasn’t bad, and gives him something to build on.

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 although the prognosis is getting better.

2. I’m a Chatterbox – Her second place effort in the Alabama was good enough to keep her in this spot.

3. Curalina – Flattened out some in the Alabama Stakes…might be better going shorter.

4. Lovely Maria – Still has that Kentucky Oaks win to her credit, but isn’t anywhere near that form now.

5. Embellish the Lace – Wire to wire win in the Alabama in dominating fashion!  Could be a major player in this division with a repeated effort.

Sleeper: Stellar Wind – Need her to run soon…can’t wait around forever.


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

2. Rock Fall – Stepped up in competition and passed the test with flying colors. Becoming a top notch sprinter.

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 – Not moving him up the rankings because he won such an easy race…but it looks like he’s BACK.

Sleeper: Wild Dude – Lost nothing in defeat last weekend in the Pat O’Brien.
