Extra Extra Extra The Haskell Monmouth Park
Race 12 1m 1/8th Dirt G1
Lots of interest with the Triple Crown Winner set to race for the first time since his epic achievements earlier in the year.
Pletcher has 3 horses declared can only see one racing which will make it a Six horse race.
American Pharaoh has certainly had his form franked what I mean by that is horses that he beat in the Triple Crown Series have come out recently and won which does make him a very good horse. He is a horse that is full of confidence can sit in or make the pace as an opposing jock what tactics do you use. Someone has to take him on fascinating race he has trained well for this and got exceptional treatment in shipping up to New Jersey from California for the race.
I personally think he is a freak of a horse which horses tend to be when they achieve the impossible. He will relish being back on the track and that energy will be released coming out the gate and the rest is history.
Sit back and enjoy these races come along once in a blue moon here are my three selections for the Haskell.
Race 12 5.52 pm est
# 4 American Pharoah 1/5 …. Gives 4 pounds in weight to the field after a layoff but this guy is capable of giving weight. The two works at Delmar show he is in fine form Espinosa will let him loose on the front before the bend then its catch me if you can. Big crowd will be able to say “I was there”.
# 1 Upstart 6/1 …. First run since the Kentucky Derby which he never showed up. excellent form before that though … winning the Holy Bull Fountain of Youth hit the frame in the Breeders Juvenile. Will tuck in behind THE MONSTER hoping to get first run on him.
# 6 Keen Ice 12/1 …. Excellent run behind AP in the Belmont does have trouble finishing off his races will make a run coming into the home straight and pick up ground and hit the frame. Jock is a problem will Desomreaux show ????
