Racing Dudes Divisional Rankings

Princess of Symlar Runs in this Weeks Alabama

Princess of Symlar Runs in this Weeks Alabama

Older Males

1. Wise Dan – He’s simply a brilliant horse when going one mile on the turf.

2. Game on Dude – Put in a super workout on Tuesday.  Primed and ready for the Pacific Classic.

3. Cross Traffic – The new face in the division showed he’s for real in the Whitney.  Now he’s a prime time player.

4. Graydar – He has rejoined Pletcher’s Stable at Saratoga, will be looking for a big fall campaign.

5. Fort Larned – Crazy inconsistent, and still living off that Classic win last year.  Horse is just 1 for 4 this season.

Sleeper: Successful Dan – His Whitney second place effort was solid…now lets see if he can put back to back races together.

Older Females

1. Royal Delta – The champion is back!  It wasn’t the best field you’ll ever see, but Royal Delta looks to have regained her form.

2. Tiz Miz Sue – It now looks like she’ll won’t run again until September.  Definitely pointing towards the Ladies Classic.

3. Authenticity – Proved best in the Shuvee…match up with Royal Delta possible in the Personal Ensign.

4. Joyful Victory – Her stakes win at Monmouth proves she’s ready for a big second half.

5. On Fire Baby – Illness set her back…still think she will have a big fall.

Sleeper: My Miss Aurelia – Don’t forget about her…she’s back in training and when she’s right she is tough to handle.

3 Year Old Males

1. Palace Malice – I’ll give him the number one spot right now, but the Travers will most likely determine things.

2. Verrazano – The Haskell win was the WOW performance of the year!  Now can he stretch it to 10 furlongs in the Travers Stakes?

3. Orb – I rewarded the two top horses because they ran this weekend, but a Travers win will easily vault him back to number one.

4. Oxbow – It’s a shame about the minor injury in the Haskell, but hopefully he’ll be back and 100% soon.

5. Will Take Charge – Consistency is the problem, but when he’s at his best he can beat almost anyone.

Sleeper: Departing – Super talented horse, but they are taking their time with him.  Could be a monster at age four.

3 Year Old Females

1. Princess or Sylmar – It’s Alabama time for her.  Can she continue her dominance?

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

3.  Midnight Lucky – Unfortunately she will miss the rest of the year, which will cause her to drop some.

4. Fiftyshadesofhay – Showdown looms with her and Princess of Sylmar in the Alabama this weekend.

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

Sleeper: Unlimited Budget – Still have to mention her, but she needs to rebound from a poor effort in the CCA Oaks.

Sprinters

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

2. Justin Phillip – The old pro looks better than ever.  So great to see him win his first Grade 1 stakes.

3. Gentleman’s Bet – Valiant effort in the Vanderbilt, I don’t discount him at all for that race.

4. Sage Valley – Up and comer has really had a nice season.

5. Bahamian Square – Quietly having a great 2013 season.  Very consistent horse.

Sleeper: Trinniberg – Defending sprint champion is still on our radar.
