Sweet Reason Goes For Three in Frizette
In two wins in two lifetime starts, the two-year-old filly Sweet Reason has beat her competition by a combined 12 lengths. Those wins were at 5 ½ and 7 furlongs, and on Saturday in the $500,000 Grade I Frizette at Belmont, she’ll be looking to prove she can carry that form over a one-turn mile. In both of those races, the first a maiden special weight win, the second coming in the Grade I Spinaway Stakes at Saratoga a month ago, she came from off the pace to race 4-5 wide through the turn, and then easily tacked down the leaders by mid-stretch.
Stopchargingmaria hoping for a fast track
The Frizette sets up a re-match of sorts, as the second-place finisher in the Spinaway, Stopchargingmaria, will also be in the field. Stopchargingmaria also went into the Spinaway off a convincing 5 ½ length maiden win at Saratoga at first asking and came from mid-pack to challenge for the lead in a wide move at the top of the stretch but could not keep up with Sweet Reason. That race was run on a sloppy track, so perhaps she’ll put up a better fight on more solid footing at Belmont.
Artimis Agrotera demolished field in first
If convincing maiden wins are part of the handicapping equation for the Frizette, consideration has to be given to Artimis Agrotera, who will make only her second lifetime start after winning her first try by 11 ½ lengths at 5 ½ furlongs. The only filly in the field with three races to her credit will be Ria Antonia, who ships down from Woodbine after finishing fourth in the Swynford Stakes. The Frizette, race 9 on the 11-race card, is a ‘Win and You’re In’ race for the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Filles on November 1.
