I am a bit sentimental about pedigrees which involve me a lot in my spare time. Today GUMBARU ETSU(USA) is prominent in the races. All four of her racing fit produce are involved today. OYSTER COVE, LAGO MEDIO,OASIS STAR & INSITE SOUL( son of INFINITE, daughter) are in the fray. All have a good chance to score. One can plan a three way roll.
1.ABSOLUTE REALITY is half brother to useful YES ES YES SEZ . FLUENT VICTORY is speedy. IKARIA a half brother to AVEC PLAISIER was an eye catching 3rd to RED ROMEO, WILL BE HARD TO BEAT. LONE SENTINEL is improved. STAR SPEED is full brother to Sprinter trophy winner BLUE HORIZON & useful PREMIER STAR.

2. ATHENA finished from last position to stun the favorite, the top jockey may defeat the stiff penalty. QUEEN’S COURT was a good 2nd. KAI will be involved for the title. PREMIER QUEEN appeals at these weights as she is very well bred.
