HRN Video Race of the Week: G1 Matriarch with Miss Temple City

Sunday’s Grade I Matriarch at Del Mar drew a full field of 12 but it might be a one horse affair if Miss Temple City brings her “A” game. The Graham Motion trainee beat Grade I males twice this year at one mile on turf but both of those races were at Keeneland and she must prove that she can produce a race of that quality away from that venue.

Time and Motion is a 3-year-old filly on the rise for trainer Jimmy Toner. She is fresh and won the Grade I QE II Challenge Cup at Keeneland on Oct 15 but a flat mile might be a bit sharp for her.

Trainer Chad Brown finished 1-2 in yesterday’s Grade I Hollywood Derby and is back for more with a trio of entrants in this event. Roca Rojo might be his best chance and the 5-for-6 filly must deal with firm turf after walking away with an easy win in the Grade III Athenia on soft ground at Belmont Oct 23.

Alice Springs an interesting contender in BC Juvenile Fillies Turf

Friday’s 8th race (4:50pm ET) from Keeneland is the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf for 2-year-old fillies traveling one mile on the turf course.

#3 ALICE SPRINGS (6-1) was only 1.25 lengths behind Illuminate at 6f Sept 26 and came back to cruise vs. eleven foes at seven furlongs a week later (both under Ryan Moore). She drew well, is bred to go this far, and is on the improve for O’Brien.

BC JF Turf 2015

#14 Last Waltz (20-1) is now trained by Chad Brown and her Racing Post Rating advanced in all four outings (102-98-83-74).

#9 Nemoralia (15-1) was 2nd in the G1 Frizette (sloppy track) and beat 18 foes in an overseas turf sprint Sept 10 (94 Racing Post Rating). I always respect Noseda when he enters a horse in the U.S.

#4 Catch a Glimpse (5-1) exits back-to-back Woodbine turf wire jobs and the 2-3 finishers from the G2 Natalma both came back to score.

#8 Harmonize (7-2) is versatile, training well, and a nose away from being undefeated.

#10 Illuminate (9-2) brings strong overseas turf sprint form to the table for Hannon and her Racing Post Ratings are strong (112-107-107-85).
