Picks For 2 Year Old Stakes Races at Arlington

7 (4:26) 7f Arlington Lassie

1 Royalty Princess (8-1): E 75 (5f turf) Lost ground in stretch when winning maiden wire to wire over turf, bullet work over the polytrack, 31% trainer turf to AW; intriguing at these odds.

2 Princess La Quinta (30-1): P 64 (5f turf) 5th on turf in maiden debut, quick turnaround and switch to AW.

3 Richiesdreamgirl (15-1): E 77 (5f) Extended through stretch when wiring maiden debut over this track two months ago, working well since and trainer Rivelli wins with 27% of runners off a similar layoff.

4 Sister Kan (15-1): S 75 (5.5f) Off board but gained late in debut here, adds blinkers, quick turnaround.

5 Lisa’s Premier (12-1): S 75 (5.5f) Off board and gave way late in debut here, quick turnaround.

6 Que Hansen (10-1): S 66 (5.5f) Far back in dirt debut, switches to AW for Maker barn.

7 Diadura (3-1): S 81 (5f) Closed ground winning maiden debut with field high figure over AW here, two straight bullet works since, BRIS Prime Power selection seems logical winner with added pace expected.

8 Hidenseeksally (30-1): E 75 (5f dirt) Broke maiden last out but took four tries to get there, switches to AW, will see more contested pace this time.

9 Spirituality (7-2): E 81 (6f dirt) Extended through stretch winning maiden debut, fig there competitive for win but came on dirt, enters off bullet work elsewhere and switches to AW with pedigree to suit surface, tough read.

10 Mo’s MVP (20-1): S 71 (5.5f) Well back in debut here but enters off bullet work, quick turnaround.

11 R Naja (8-1): S 76 (5.5f) Closed evenly when 2nd in debut over this track, quick turnaround.

12 Benner Island (5-1): P 74 (5.5f dirt) Came on late to win debut over dirt with slow fig, switches to AW with no works over it and although pedigree suits surface switch, draws widest of all.

Picks:

1) Diadura (3-1)

2) Royalty Princess (8-1)

3) Richiesdreamgirl (15-1)

4) Spirituality (7-2)

8 (4:56) 7f Arlington Futurity

1 Ptolemy (20-1): E 63 (8f turf) 2nd over turf in debut with slow fig at longer distance, 28% trainer turf to AW, average works.

2 Brave Benny (10-1) E 81 (4.5f) Rough trip over dirt last out, but broke maiden here at a much shorter distance before that, only runner with a 5f bullet over the track since last start and he has two of them; live at a price.

3 Romeo O Romeo (6-1) E 81 (5.5f) Rated off pace and extended in stretch to win maiden bow over the Arlington polytrack, working well.

4 Seven Forty Seven (8-1) P 66 (6f dirt) Bad trip when well-beaten in debut over dirt, well bred grandson of Tiznow switches to AW, where he posted two 3f bullets in July over this track.

5 St. Louie Guy (10-1) E 85 (5.5f) Broke maiden last out here in 3rd try, has ascending figs over those efforts, including field high Bris Late Pace last out which should suit given expected pace as well as field high fig beyond 5f on AW, working very well here.

6 Stand And Cheer (12-1) E/P 84 (5.5f) Still a maiden in 4th try, beaten by three of these foes already but has been well supported at the windows previously and is working well.

7 Wellabled (5-2) E 92 (5f) BRIS Prime Power selection and heavy favorite here off his romping, extending 5f maiden debut win over this track; held lead and faded when 2nd on turf last out at 5.5f, was it the surface or the added distance that got him? Shows a 3f bullet work recently and trainer Rivelli is 29% turf to AW, but is far from a sure thing at these odds in a 12 horse field with so much other early speed; defensive use.

8 Birdsnest Party (15-1): P 76 (5.5f) Off board here in debut, beaten by two of these, did make up late ground though and working evenly since.

9 Star Empire (5-1): E/P 82 (6.5f) Undefeated in two career starts, only two time winner in the field was extending in both for 30% AW trainer Wesley Ward, now switches tracks from Keeneland without working here, but has experience advantage as the only entrant to have won on AW beyond 6f and should work out a nice stalking trip behind the speed. Top selection simply has the least question marks and boasts the strongest resume.

10 Oso Ready (10-1): E 87 (5.5f dirt) Won maiden debut over dirt with quick fig but lost ground in stretch, poor trainer dirt to AW record (0 for 15).

11 Maxus (30-1): P 66 (8f turf) Won maiden bow over turf with a slow fig at longer distance, 30% turf to AW trainer has longshot working evenly for cutback try.

12 En Hanse (12-1): P 73 (5.5f turf) 3rd in debut but lost ground late, switches to AW for Maker barn.

Picks:

1) Star Empire 5-1

2) Wellabled 5-2

3) Brave Benny 10-1

4) St. Louie Guy 10-1
