Bet On Bowling Green Stakes – Bowling For Dollars

bet on bowling green stakes

Online horse betting players should know that it takes a special horse to win the Bowling Green Stakes, which will be run for the 53rd time this Saturday on opening day at Belmont Park.

The Grade 2 mile and three-eighths grass fray has been the scene for some victories by some special runners over the decades.

Elliott Burch owned the race in the early 1970s as he saddled the winner 3 times through 1973 including wins by Fort Marcy and Run the Gantlet.

Hard-knocking Tiller succeeded late in the ‘70s. In more recent years stars like Theatrical and champion With Approval smiled for the cameras in the charmed circle after this fixtures.

Last year Bill Mott’s trainee Al Khali parlayed a pop and stop third in the Grade 1 Sword Dancer to a come from behind neck win in the Bowling Green when posting a 95 Beyer. He had to come from fifth and 4 lengths off the pace.

This season, a cozy crew of 7 will pit skills in hopes of earning the winning portion of the $150,000 purse and the race is obviously competitive as the last race Beyers of the runners range between 87 and 94.

Mr. Mott is hoping for that déjà vu feeling, as he will saddle Colonialism, who is making his stakes debut but has run very well since graduating in his 2010 finale.

Sports betting players know his best asset may be the fact he can be placed anywhere and perform. He came from third to last in the graduation party but was on the pace all the way in his second start of the year before failing by a neck. Game in victory last time, like fact the show horse was clear for fun and with slight improvement, he will make more noise today.

From the rail starts Kindergarden Kid, who was dead last in his other stakes attempt and who could get loose on the board since he was just handled by a number of today’s rivals.
Next door is Sal the Barber, a Grade 3 winner as a sophomore who is a stakes winner on this inner turf course. The veteran did not get a comfortable trip in his shore finale when between horses all the way. The winner of his last race cashed again in the Grade 1 United Nations next out.

Sanagas made his stateside debut in July in a Grade 3 at Arlington and the gelding was inching toward the winner late. He showed a solid turn of late foot in his last coming from 4 back to win going away with a 94 figure. He loves this distance and should be a handful.

Never liked to see more slices than wins and that is the deal for Bold Hawk, who has not greeted the cameraman since 2007. Pushed along last time, he may be best settling and making the one run.

Center Divider was out of the money in both Graded efforts but kicked late to chase Sanagas home in last. He may be on the fragile side as the races are spaced but he is repeatedly proven off a layoff.

On the outside Grassy will start his engine. He looms the long-fused half of the Christophe Clement pair as that trainer’s other charge Sal the Barber has tactical speed and will likely be sent hard. This guy proved his class taking the Grade 2 Red Smith last year and he was flattered when the horse he beat a length in June won the Grade 2 Nijinsky at Woodbine in late July.

The beaten chalk last time, Grassy has every right to make amends for the loss. He has positional speed, likes this course, and is the one to beat.

If you’re betting horses, you could do worse than trying to hook up this special equine specimen with Sanagas and Colonialism in the gimmick.

Good luck.
