Holiday Weekend Racing / Part 1

The weather looks hot and dry, and the racing looks superb for this July 4th Holiday weekend.

Saturday’s card at Monmouth has the Salvatore Mile and the Grade 1 United Nations Stakes. The latter, being a “Win and You’re In” for the Breeder’s Cup Turf.

The Salvatore Mile could be a re-match between Rule and Morning Line. ( Still can't believe there was never a horse in recent memory with that name.) I'm looking for a better effort from Rule being back on a fast track. There looks to be a lot of speed in the race, including Motivato with Joe Bravo up.

Which could set it up nicely for Friesan Fire.

Friesan Fire has been back with Larry Jones for the last two months. He is showing some sharp works and could be ready to roll.

My thoughts on the United Nations Stakes are at the Handicapper’s Corner (courtesy of TBA) at THOROFAN.
Take a look, and tell me what you think.
