Long Weekend Preview

Street Sense is back to ‘possible‘ for the Belmont, Nobiz Like Shobiz is not likely and Slew’s Tizzy is on his way, but there’s plenty to look forward to in the meantime. The Hanshin Cup at Arlington Park features favorite Lewis Michael (pictured) facing Purim and Barbican (who has never quite reached his potential, in my opinion). Gouldings Green is in the pictures as well and should make it an interesting race. Some of you may recall Lewis Michael finished a creditable third in the Tropical Park Derby last year (defeated by another horse whose name started with ‘Barb’ — although I don’t predict this will be Barbican’s day to win, he may well hit the board) and he is a full brother to Dreaming of Anna. There’s a lot to like.

The Louisville Handicap will be showcasing grass specialists; I like Ramazutti and am intrigued by longshots Royal Assault and Louve Des Reves. In less pleasing turf news, Showing Up is out for the time being with a torn suspensory ligament; here’s hoping he recovers soon.

Rather than end on a downer for the turf fans, let’s look forward to Honey Ryder’s return in the Sheepshead Bay this weekend. She looks to be the class of the race, but it won’t be a walkover.

There is still no word from Todd Pletcher on Rags to Riches’ possible next start (*cough* Belmont *cough*)…

See you at the Fair Hill Races!
