Races of the Week

I've neglected to post selections for the past couple of weeks. I'll post an update later but for now, here are my selections in the Daily Racing Form's and Equibase's races of the week.

In the Gardenia Handicap, I'll bet Miss Atlantic. Miss Atlantic is a front runner and Ellis Park favors early speed. An inside post position should help her too. Equibase provides free past performances.

Storm Mesa looks like a deserving favorite in the Del Mar Oaks. She's won five in a row, including her last start on the turf at Del Mar. She's never gone a mile and an eight before, but her Tomlinson rating indicates that the added distance shouldn't be a problem for her. The Form provides free past performances.

I'll go with the Godolphin Stable's entry of Music Note and Little Belle in the Alabama Stakes. Music Note is the only filly in the race who has run a triple-digit Beyer figure. In her last start, she showed she could win at a mile and a quarter. The Form provides free past performances. past performances are available via the Godolphin Stable.
