Race Preview: Ender

Ender will go in race in a salty seven horse field in race seven.  He’ll break from post 2 with Quincy Hamilton aboard.  The race is another $15,000 optional claiming race over the dirt but THIS time we’re going 6 1/2 furlongs rather than the 5 1/2 last time.

Rolls Royce Deal (Diodoro/Arrieta) – Beat us last out when we finished 2nd.  We all know we surged a bit early and Ender got lazy up front.  Quincy got him going again but just too late.  Be assured that Quincy will have that in mind – he’s a professional who knows how to win.

Group 1 is in the paddock for this one.


London Legacy (Van Winkle/Lindsay) – Gate to wire last out when Ender wasn’t on top of his game and blistered an 88 Beyer in the process.  This guy can certainly win to 6 1/2 furlongs and will be prominent early.

Awesome Emmit (Donlin/Goncalves) – Tried to push London Legacy last out but flattened out late.  He may be able to get closer with a 6 1/2 furlong race and will likely push London Legacy early.

Unleash the Beast (JSilva/Gonzalez) – Will absolutely be prominent early.  I’m sensing a pattern that I like…

Jerrys Pridenjoy (Richard/Hernandez) – Been running in allowance company and been getting close but not quite there.  A $15,000 optional is not much of a step down and will look to stalk and pounce.

I’m a G Six (Padilla/Loveberry) – Seems to prefer going longer though sprint efforts were in pretty salty allowances.  Should be trying to come from off the pace.

Ender is getting his preferred distance along with a decent amount of pace in the race to get after late.  By no means is this a lock for our boy, this is a good field, but the race sets up nicely for him and it’s hard to not be optimistic.  That said, it’s a horse race. London Legacy is no slouch and there are several solid allowance horses here that will be very hard to beat.  It should be a good one and we have a chance.
