Remsen Stakes Betting – Vegas No Show Pulls It Off In New York

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 11/22/2012 5:25:28 PM

Online betting sharps that follow horse racing should be aware of the Grade-2 Remsen Stakes, one of the most important races of the winter and the winner usually goes into the list of contenders for May’s Kentucky Derby. This year’s winner will enter the mix by upsetting the probable favorite at Aqueduct on Saturday.

What: Horse Betting
When: Saturday, November 24th, post time TBA
Where: Aqueduct Racetrack, Queens, NY
Pick: Vegas No Show

Delhomme is one of three horses in this field trained by Todd Pletcher, one of the biggest names in the horse racing industry, and he captured his maiden in his second attempt in October at Belmont Park in a one-mile race. Stepping up to a stakes race is obviously going to be a big deal for Delhomme, and you should watch how he handles the late stages of this 1 1/8-mile race as he has never run longer than that one-mile race.

Indy’s Illusion also broke his maiden in October and it was also at Belmont Park, but it was in his third try, although it was also at the one-mile distance. That means you also have to watch how Indy’s Illusion runs the final furlong of the race; does he have a strong closing kick? That is what horse betting players will be looking for on the road to the Kentucky Derby.

Irsaal broke his maiden in his first try in October, but he finished a disappointing fifth in his first graded-stakes race, the Grade-2 Nashua at Aqueduct earlier this month. Strangely, he fared worst in a shorter race (the Nashua was run at a mile) as Irsaal broke his maiden at 1 1/16 miles, so he could be a horse to watch down the stretch. 

Keep The Canoli got his maiden back in June and has since run in two non-graded stakes events, finishing fifth in the Tyro Stakes in August and then second in the Dover race in October. This is Keep The Canoli’s first trip to New York after being bred in Florida and then racing in Delaware and New Jersey (no, racing in New Jersey doesn’t count as racing in New York), so this is a well-traveled two-year-old.

Micromanage is Pletcher’s second horse in this field as the trainer aims for his second win in this race and first since 2005, when John Velazquez rode Bluegrass Cat to victory. After breaking his maiden in September, Micromanage finished fifth in the Grade-1 Champagne Stakes at Belmont Park a month later, and that may have been a little too ambitious for this two-year-old colt. He could be in for a much stronger performance at Aqueduct this weekend.

This is a huge jump for Normandy Invasion, who finished fifth in his only start, a maiden special-weight race at Belmont Park over six furlongs in September. There isn’t a lot of information out there about this horse, other than having the best name in the field, so he’ll probably be a horse betting longshot, but you never know in the world of thoroughbred horse racing.

On the other hand, Overanalyze will likely be one of the favorites as he has a strong track record and has run against some great competition. The final of the Pletcher trio, Overanalyze broke his maiden in August, then finished fourth in the Grade-2 Hopeful Stakes before winning the Grade-2 Futurity, both in September. Overanalyze followed that with a third-place run in the Grade-3 Iroquois in October, but the one concern horse betting players should have here is that Overanalyze has never run longer than a mile, so it’ll be interesting to see how he handles the closing stretch.

After making three attempts to break his maiden (which he finally did), Quinzieme Monarque finished fourth in the Grade-3 Pilgrim at 1 1/16 miles at Belmont, where he has made three of his four starts. That isn’t the best track record in the world as three of his four starts have ended in a fourth-place finish, so it could be either sink or swim for Quinzieme Monarque.

Stormy Len didn’t have a good first trip to Aqueduct, finishing sixth in the aforementioned Nashua event after breaking his maiden at Belmont Park in September. This horse should be a little calmer in his second graded-stakes race and his handlers surely figured out a better way to get him prepared for this event, so watch for a better effort from Stormy Len.

Vegas No Show came in second in the Nashua race to Violence, and this was after winning the non-graded Dover race. Those results were definitely improvements after a sixth-place finish in the Hopeful Stakes and two maiden attempts, so Vegas No Show definitely has some experience on the racetrack. Will that translate to a victory on Saturday?

How It Will Play Out

Overanalyze may be the better horse, but Vegas No Show has a little more experience and will pick up his second win in three starts. Go with Vegas No Show in your sports betting picks.
