Game On Dude Runs in the Hollywood Gold Cup this Weekend
Game On Dude Runs in the Hollywood Gold Cup this Weekend

Older Males

1. Wise Dan – Even though he was overpowering in the Firecracker, he still gave us a thrill.

2. Game on Dude – Runs in the Hollywood Gold Cup this week as he looks to continue his California dominance.

3. Fort Larned – Performance of the year in the Stephen Foster.  Will be impossible to beat with that kind of form.

4. Graydar – Sidelined with injury for the Fall/Spring…will return this Summer at Saratoga.  Serious horse if he comes back running strong.

5. Sahara Sky – Tremendous job running down Cross Traffic in the Met Mile.

Sleeper: Paynter – HUGE comeback race off near death, Cinderella story in the making!

Older Females

1. Royal Delta – We’ll give her one mulligan, and the Fleur de Lis is it.  Must improve greatly off that effort or this division become wide open.

2. Tiz Miz Sue – Became a millionaire and won her first Grade 1 on the same day.  Better than ever at age six.

3. Ciao Bella – Looks to be peaking, can she carry her Gulfstream form elsewhere?

4. Authenticity – Backed up her huge effort on Oaks day with another solid showing in the Ogden Phipps.

5. On Fire Baby – Has come back for her 4-year-old campaign much improved; could be setting up for a big time year.

Sleeper: Summer Applause – Looks to be rounding into top form for trainer Chad Brown.

3 Year Old Males

1. Oxbow – Proved best and definitely toughest through the Triple Crown season.

2. Orb – We overrated him, but we also shouldn’t count him out.

3. Palace Malice – Could he be the a late bloomer much like his father Curlin.  Summer could prove big for him.

4. Verrazano – He’s back in big way!  A huge summer campaign could put him land him on top in this division.

5. Normandy Invasion – He proved in the Kentucky Derby that he’s got the talent…now he needs a victory.  He has just one career win.

Sleeper: Mylute – His consistent efforts land him here, but like Normandy Invasion he needs a win!

3 Year Old Females

1. Princess or Sylmar – She won the race everyone was calling “The Race of the Year” so how could she not be number one at this point?

2. Beholder – Looked like the winner until deep in the stretch of the Oaks; showed her class off once again.

3. Unlimited Budget – Did not embarrass herself in the Belmont, needs to run and win against fillies now.

4. Midnight Lucky – She needed the distance cutback, and fired a HUGE race in the Acorn.

5. Fiftyshadesofhay – Made it two in a row with a nice win in the Iowa Oaks.

Sleeper: Close Hatches – Easily defeated the now overrated Dreaming of Julia in the Mother Goose.


1. Fast Bullet – Finally got to see him do his thing on the big stage.  Exceptional race in the True North.

2. Groupie Doll – This fast lady is back on the workout tab.  Gearing up for a summer/fall campaign.

3. Delaunay – Not ready to give up on him yet, but was beaten fair and square in Iowa

4. Gentleman’s Bet – Up and comer in the division looked awfully good in the Iowa Sprint

5. Justin Phillip – Old timer still running huge races.  Thought his True North was exceptional, just overshadowed by stable mate.

Sleeper: Centralinteligence – If he can repeat his Triple Bend effort, he’ll be a force.
