Time to Usher in the Stars of Tomorrow

There is nothing more exciting than discovering racing's next star. A potential Breeders’ Cup, Kentucky Oaks, or even the next Triple Crown champion could be out there. Juveniles have the world at their hooves this time of year. You never know where the next champion is going to come from, and if they happen to have flashed brilliance early on, the expectations can increase exponentially. Four horses whose potential especially fill my imagination with visions of grandeur, are running this holiday weekend in Saratoga’s prestigious, meet-ending stakes for juveniles. Monday’s Hopeful is topped by Boys at Tosconova, Wine Police, and Stay Thirsty, while tomorrow in the Spinaway, I will be watching the filly Valiant Passion closely.

The 2yr olds are very interesting this year. Kantharos was a heartbreaking loss to the sport, but if any one of the horse you named can step up we might be able mend a little quicker.

Dutrow always gets excited when he has a real nice colt and this looks like one of those times. He really seems to be hyping him like he did BB, and BB backed him up on most occasions.

Stay Thirsty and Wine Police will have to jump up a bit to beat BAT, but with juveniles they always are liable to do just that.

Dutrow is sky high on Boys ... let's see if he is right.
