View Full Version : A look at Graded earnings

03-16-2005, 05:44 PM
Last year the cut-off mark was around $200,000. No reason to think it'll be much less. I'm actually surprised how many are already past the $175k mark.

The Dubai race is a Graded Stakes. The winner nets 1mm plus and the 2nd place runner receives $500k. A few yrs ago a Dubai mdn ran in the Derby off the 2nd place finish. There have been rumblings that someone may be coming.

Taking a look at a few other oddballs who could zoom up the chart from nowhere:

Magna Graduate is a horse with a real nice line. Byrne could grab the Lanes End/Jim Beam stakes and join the starting field in May.

Naughty New Yorker just paired up 3's and wasted nice efforts in non-graded events. Has a future.

I'm thinking Defer doesn't like Gulfstream. Shug should try him elsewhere.

Scrappy T put in a nice effort at the inner-tube, again wasting it in a non-graded event. I wonder if the trainer Bailes knows what he has.

Baffy personally selected Sort It Out, unfortunately he didn't know that Iwinski is a 'move up trainer' in NY and the chances of moving this one up anytime soon are remote.

Storm Surge is sneaky good, perhaps not GI material.

I'm giving Scipion another chance, compromised by speed favoring track.

May they all come home safely!
