STUBBINS really took my eye for the Grade 1 Jaipur, he ran a 102 Beyer in his prep race for this race at Santa Anita in May and had the Pure Sensation behind him in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint in November.
He really should be running a triple figure Beyer here and he is the only horse in the race that is a closer, so Pure Sensation, Texas Wedge and Hidden Scroll should have set the race up for him to come with a late rally.
I’ve not been Tiz the Laws biggest fan and despite the fact he’s proven me wrong to date, but this is a hill I’m happy to die on.
DR POST ran well in his only start as a two-year-old and has won both his starts this year. Everything went wrong in his last start in a stakes race, yet he still showed a resolute attitude to get the job done.
There should be plenty more to come and his trainer Todd A. Pletcher has spoken bullishly about his ability. There is no better rider in the states at the moment than Irad Ortiz Jr and I believe he can really put it up to the hot favourite here.
