Stakes Saturday along the Jersey Shore

On this Stakes Saturday, we have Turf.  Racing along the Jersey shore at a wonderful route distance on a beautiful day is on tap.

Monmouth Park Race 11 {United Nations~G1~1 3/8 mile~TURF~3 year-old Up~Graded Stakes}

A great field of nine will hit the Jersey green in this annual feature. There is some speed which may produce a nice flow to the race. Speed numbers are fairly close making this a highly competitive event. Most in here are tried and tested. All but one are coming into this one fresh. It should be one of the outstanding races in North America.

#8 Oscar Nominated (Carmouche / Maker) has the tactical speed to be the stayer. He holds the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four excellent workouts. A son of leading Turf sire, Kitten's Joy, he has already racked a win at this distance.
$1 WIN  /  $2 PLACE  /  $3 SHOW.

#1 Beach Patrol (Geroux / C. Brown) should go off as the deserved favorite with the highest last out speed number, an eight race progression, and two solid workouts. He should also be the speed of the race controlling the pace on the front end. A son of Lemon Drop Kid, he should make all as he stretches out to this distance.
$1 PLACE  /  $2 SHOW.

#5 Messi [GER] (Bocachica / Motion) should challenge with a couple of good last out speed numbers, a three race progression, and four serious workouts. He could be close to the pace and strike in the stretch. A son of New Approach [IRE], this lad has also secured a victory at this distance from two tries.
$1 SHOW.

Another Wagering Interest

#3 Bigger Picture (Bravo / Maker) should be in the, err, picture as well, with the third highest last out speed number at a longer Turf route and four fine workouts. This lad has earned two wins from four starts at this distance. He could be forwardly placed seeking position for the closing run. A son of Badge of Silver, he shares the highest speed number at this distance.

#8 Oscar Nominated  /  #1 Beach Patrol  /  #5 Messi [GER], #3 Bigger Picture  /  ALL.
