Man, is this weekend going to be a pulsating one for the stable, with four stake race runners set to represent the big man!
So, let’s start with Belmont Park tomorrow, and Classic Fit who’s drawn 2 of 6 in the $250,000 GII Mother Goose Stakes, over 1 1/16th miles. This 3-year-old daughter of Bernardini is an 8-1 shot to prevail under Jose Lezcano.
Over at Gulfstream Park, Saguaro Row is drawn 4 of 7 in the $250,000 GII Princess Rooney Stakes, over seven furlongs. Albin Jimenez takes the ride on this improving daughter of Union Rags, and the pair are a 5-2 shot on the Morning Line.
One race later at the Florida track, Jimenez once again takes the mount, this time on Proforma, who’s drawn 1 of 7 on the six furlong $250,000 GIII Smile Sprint Stakes. This tough cookie is looking for more black type, and is a 4-1 shot to take home the crown.
Tomorrow up in Canada, stable stalwart Synchrony goes for further glory in the $175,000 King Edward Stakes at Woodbine, Javier Castellano aboard. The duo are drawn 2 of 8. Synchrony is a warm 7/5 shot to prevail in the mile race on the turf.
