Sunday Morning Ramblings

Yesterday was a busy Saturday for Racing with 2 Grade 1's at Belmont and the Hollywood Gold Cup out west. The most interesting was probably the Mother Goose with Music Note (now 3-0) the winner over Proud Spell (2nd in TBA 3 yo Filly standings). My feeling is this was a Riders Race, with a slow pace, and Gabriel Saez did not have a good ride. I know he had bad luck with a terrible start out of the gate, but he still had a chance coming around the final turn-I thought when he was on the rail he had a chance to squeeze by but Saez did not take it.

Look for Music Note to turn up at the Alabama at the Spa on the 16th of August.

In other thoughts, there are 2 Two year old races today at Belmont -take a look at Mr. Mistoffelees in the Tremont Stakes-this colt won debut on Poly surface by 9.5 lengths-lets see how he does on the dirt today. In the Astoria Stakes, Stewart Elliot comes up to Belmont to ride Bold Union, the 2 y.o. filly won big at her debut at Monmouth Park.
