Horse Racing Predictions – Stephen Foster Handicap


The Stephen Foster was inaugurated in 1982 and Vodika Collins won the initial two editions of this race. Let’s take a look at the Horse Racing Predictions and Picks for this race today.

Horse Racing PredictionsSome stellar racers like Awesome Again, Victory Gallop, Perfect Drift, Saint Liam and Curlin have discovered themselves in the winner’s circle after the 9-furlongs of this event and a year ago Fort Larned was coming off a 5th in the Oaklawn Handicap before going wire-to-wire in this race with a profitable 115 Beyer Speed Figure.

The $500,000-added Grade 1 Foster has enticed an elegant number of older runners.
A Longshot With Some Value: Mylute

This colt broke his maiden for rider James Graham and he’s back the saddle. He comes here fresh, showed he belongs with his third in the Preakness a year ago and the purchase price must be right.

The Pick: Will Take Charge

Long River has been sidelined since April but is proven fresh. He has entered 4 Graded races in his career, never a Grade 1, and the most effective he could do was 2 nd when beaten a throat in a 6-horse field.

Prayer for Relief has had a wonderful career and has won over $1.6 million but he has blanked this year and the final win was in a $74,000 stakes at Fair Grounds.

Revolutionary has won the Pimlico Special and was third in Orb’s Kentucky Derby last year. He originated in 30 lengths back last time for you to win in Maryland but he has archrival Will Take Charge to deal with among others.

Jaguar Paw peaked a year ago winning an $88,000 stakes at Belmont when he got away with moderate splits. This race is a whole new kind of animal.

Departing has drilled fast since winning a comeback race here in April. He includes a penchant for choosing the wire as he has won 7 of his 10 starts and he has enough positional speed to obtain first operate on the deep closers today.

Moonshine Mullin is looking for lightning to strike doubly he’s fresh from upsetting Will Take Charge in the Alysheba. He was has 4 times since being claimed for $40,000, brings speed to the party but doesn’t need the cause succeed.

Golden Ticket has nearly doubly many slices as win. And which makes him a difficult at the top only ticket to consider. He did run second in this very race a year ago but never truly threatened the winner when beaten by over 6 lengths. He’s much too sharp now not to take seriously.

Will Take Charge has trained sharply because the dull effort last time. He has won 3 times at this distance and has never been out of the exacta at 9 furlongs. The trunk class is there in spades and he was flattered by Revolutionary’s victory.

Mylute has not yet found his best stride. He won his 2014 debut in a much softer spot and in his best moment was 2nd beaten a throat in a Grade 2 last year. One of the greatest things he has opting for him is his clever trainer Tom Amoss.

Will Take Charge’s last race was just too poor to believe. Beaten a nose in the Breeders’Cup Classic a year ago, he has rebounded from poor efforts before and if he brings his A casino game and the capability to post a 114 Beyer Speed Figure, the remainder could be running for minor prizes.
