Power cap- existential handicapping

Strong line-up of Stakes this weekend for the Presidents

Looks like the most exciting weekend of racing so far this year at least from this blogs POV.

Sat Laurel race 8 Campbell handicap
Naughty New Yorker ships out of New York for the first time to Laurel for the Campbell. Angliana also shipps down from to renew their rivalry. I still remember when they knocked Evening Attire over the rail when he raced in this Stakes 5 years ago. Rooting for all time great Samyn to get his big horse home.

Sat Tampa Race 9 Endevour stakes
This is a extraordinary race for the purse and the Grade. Graded winners Dreaming of Anna, Lears Princess, Take The Ribbon and Meribel all line up for a mere $150K purse. Gomez even ships in to ride. The racing secretary is getting a ton of value for his $150K purse. Have to take a hard look here, but my first inclination would be Lears Princess. Sorry Uncle Frank.

Sat Santa Anita Race 8 San Carlos
This race features the return of Derby chalk Circular Quay. Toss him and go for value. Greg's Gold might be a no-brainer, I will let you know how he feels after the Greg meetings Fri night.

Mon Laurel Race 8 General George
Big test for the undefeated Bustin Stones who is as fast as lightning. Looks like the front is all his if Normandy scratches as expected.
