Paradise Creek Stakes Features Up and Comers

Paradise Creek Stakes Features Up and Comers

Category : News - Fri 27/05/2016 - 15:12 EDT

The $100,000 Paradise Creek Stakes, a race carded at seven furlongs for three year-old turf horses May 28 at Belmont, features a field of eight in addition to a pair of runners on the also-eligible list in what shapes up to be a great betting race.

Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott has had more than his share of success campaigning turf runners and appears to have another good one on his hands with 8/5 moring line favorite Mighty Mo. The sophomore runner is a son of the powerhouse stallion Uncle Mo who has produced first crop horses such as 2016 Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist. Mighty Mo broke his maiden in his second caereer start March 26 at Gulfstream Park and followed that effort with a fine second place effort April 23 in the Woodhaven Stakes at Aqueduct. Hall of Fame rider John Velazquez will have the mount while breaking from post 8. 

Maiden winner looks the part

Conquest See Ya is the 2/1 morning line second choice for trainer Mark Casse following an impressive maiden score Aprile 30 at Belmont. Prior to that effort the son of Adios Charlie finished third in his debut at Woodbine. Despite an obscure pedigree, this runner appears to be the real deal and will be tough to deny if able to make slight improvement on his last speed figure. Like several runners in the race, however, Conquest See Ya will have plenty of questions to answer while facing better competiton. Jockey Jose Lezcano will take the mount while breaking from the rail. 

Clement speedster should be more fit

Christope Clement is another turf savvy trainer and must be respected with 4/1 shot Too Discreet. The son of Discreet Cat also exits the Woodhaven where he finished fourth while making his seasonal debut. Prior to that start, Too Discreet won a pair of five and a half furlong sprints last year at Saratoga.
