My Conquestadory has first preference in the Juvenile Fillies Turf 
Ria Antonia has second preference in the Juvenile Fillies Turf 
Rosalind has second preference in the Juvenile Fillies Turf  
Dancing House has first preference in the Juvenile Fillies Turf 

This years Juvenile filly division is a bit of a mess and anyone of these capable fillies could easily lock up Champion Two-Year-Old Filly honors with a win in here that is if My Conquestadory loses the Juvenile Fillies Turf, or her owners could decide to run her here and if she loses here Champion Two-Year-Old Filly honors would be up for grabs.  

The Contenders 

Artemis Agrotera: New York bred filly pulled the upset in the Frizette Stakes at Belmont, I like the way she managed to fight off Sweet Reason. She is a perfect two for two and has plenty of upside she's by Roman Ruler out of an A.P. Indy mare and with that breeding she is only going to get better as she gets older and the distances get longer. 

Secret Compass: came flying to win the Chandelier Stakes at Santa Anita though it did take her awhile to wear down She's A Tiger. This daughter of Discreet Cat has made four starts with two wins and two fourths to show for her efforts. The Chandelier was her first ever start on dirt and she took to it like a fish to water I am little concerned on whether or not she wants to go farther than a mile considering her mother is by Maria's Mon and her father is Discreet Cat this one might be a good sprinter in the future. 

Untapable: a perfect two for two this daughter of Tapit has done absolutely nothing wrong and will only get better as she gets older. I love the way she won the Pocahontas Stakes at Churchill Downs in September and the freshening will help her.  

Concave: this Ontario bred filly has three starts and two wins to her name and ran credible third in the Del Mar Debutante after winning the Sorrento Stakes, only worry with this one is if she will be fit enough to take this big prize down. She hasn't run since her third in the Del Mar Debutante, she has been working well though getting an average of a work a week and ranging from four furlongs to five furlongs, and if anyone can get a horse ready off a lay-off it's Doug O'Neil. 

Designer Legs: this Louisiana bred filly has achieved a lot since her debut at Canterbury Park, she took down the $75,000 Prairie Gold Lassie Stakes at Prairie Meadows then shipped to Saratoga and took down the Adirondack Stakes. She probably didn't handle the slop in the Spinaway and she definitely didn't handle the synthetic in the Alcibaides this one is a live long-shot. She is only going to get better as the distances get longer and don't be surprised if she manages to bring in a win here. 

Ria Antonia: four starts and one win for this daughter of Rockport Harbor would need to make a major step forward to win this one. Ran fifth last out in the Frizette though she was making up good ground at the end this one would need to make a 180 degree turn around to win this race. 

Rosalind: has made three starts with one win and a third and second to show for it, always seems to come flying late and could very well be another live long-shot in here. the distance will definitely help her and Ken McPeek will make sure is running at 110%.  

Scandalous Act: five starts and four wins for this Florida bred. We all know running and training at Calder really helps develop these youngsters and she will be another long-shot that you need to take a long look at. She sports wins in three ungraded state bred stakes, and the switch to a less deep surface like Santa Anita will really move her forward, definitely a long-shot worth a long look and possibly a bet. 

She's A Tiger: has danced every dance and has never been worse than second, she is near impossible to pass in the stretch and has the tenacity of a Tiger like her name suggests. Only worry is if she can get the distance. 

Sweet Reason: I like this filly a lot she proved that she doesn't need a sloppy track to run well, and will only get better as the distances get longer. I feel last out she hindered her self by breaking horribly and losing a couple lengths at the start she will be very dangerous on Breeders Cup day.

Ode to the Little Horse that could.

He was a small little gelding not much to him he was pitch black and had the heart of a lion. He was the ultimate racehorse, and his name was Shared Belief. It broke my heart into a million pieces when I found out about his passing due to colic. I have decided to go back and look at all the great moments Shared Belief has provided the sport.


I first heard of Shared Belief when he was a two year old I watched his debut win on the 19th of Oct. 2013 on TVG and all I could say was wow, and where would this brilliant animal be making his first stakes start. I didn't have to wait to long as the plucky little black gelding came back on the 10th of Nov. 2013 in the Hollywood Prevue Stakes where he absolutely demolished his competition from there the sky was the limit.  


2013 Hollywood Prevue Stakes 

The next step for Shared Belief was the grade one Cashcall Futurity his first start in grade one company. In this race he would beat Del Mar Futurity winner Tamarando,  Front Runner Stakes wi…

First Derby Six 1/2/15

1. Brody's Cause 
Giant's Causeway- Sweet Breanna by Sahm

Owner: Albaugh Family Stable

Career Record:  Starts: 4
Firsts: 2
Seconds: 0
Thirds: 1
Earnings: $523,138

Derby Points: 14 
Extremely talented individual with a ground covering stride that looks like he'll get better with age. If he handles the transition from two to three he's going to be one tough costumer this winter. His third in the Juvenile is not discouraging he simply did not have enough time to make up ground as he was really far back in the Juvenile. Should also be noted for mile and a sixteenth races at Keeneland they have to use the short stretch at Keeneland.
