Pletcher second-time starter by Tapit out of the superstar mare La Verdad cost
$800k and looks to get her career on track after a disappointing career debut
at Aqueduct a few months ago. Catches a weak field today and picks up Irad
Ortiz aboard. The worktab really heated up recently with a fast 5F drill in
preparation for this race.
#4 City Man
plus exacta box with #2 Rinaldi
#4 City Man is back in
against NY bred competition today after a very solid second-place finish last
time against open company in the Ft. Marcy (G2). Picks up Jose Ortiz for
trainer Christophe Clement, who is red hot at the meet with 31% wins – almost all
coming on the grass. Making his second start off the layoff and is eligible to
Play in exacta box with #2
Rinaldi, who goes out for an ice-cold barn, but nevertheless owns a tactical advantage
in this field as the lone speed with a good chance to get to the lead and go a
long way in front. Returned from a layoff last time out to get the lead in a $100k
stakes race and faded late for second. Will benefit from the return outing and
go further and faster here today in the second off the layoff.
