Godolphin Should Enter Music Note In The Travers

The fastest classic race run this year by a three year old was run by a filly. After watching the Coaching Club American Oaks I think that Godolphin would be shrewd to run her in the Travers against the boys instead of the Alabama. This years filly group has been a bumper crop. Eight Belles, Proud Spell, Little Belle, Music Note and Pure Clan are the leaders of an outstanding group of three year old fillys. The Alabama could be as strong or even stronger than the Travers for a smaller purse. If Godolphin runs Music Note in the Travers they still have the capable Little Belle to represent the blue and white in the Alabama. Not only will Music Note have a great shot to win the Travers but she will have an extra week of rest to prepare for the race. It would truly be a highlight of the racing season at Saratoga if Music Note hits a high note in the Travers.

This is a good thought. I'd probably bet her after what i saw yesteday in the Dandy.

I'd put Music Note at the top of this year's 3-year-olds, possibly only second to Big Brown (depending on how he returns in the Haskell). The Travers doesn't seem like such a crazy idea.
