Game Time: Best on Turf With Bright Future in the Stakes

Two year old colt for John Sadler tried the Grade 3 Cecil B. DeMille stakes on Sunday at a mile on the grass. Off at 9/1 in a field of 8 and coming off a maiden win, he made the running right from the start under Rispoli and battled through a quick opening quarter in 22.80. They battled head and head down the back side, but the favorite pulled clear at the 1/8 pole, but “Game” was game, and battled back down on the inside and lost by just a half at the wire. He needs turf for his best and he still has the first allowance condition available, which they will be writing more of those races now for juveniles, as they soon turn three. He’s a soon winner up at Arcadia and looks like stakes material in 2023.

Generally horses that are on the Horses To Watch list ran into unexpected trouble, bad luck, and/or didn’t run the race we believe Game Time was cabable of.  We expected that if Game Time gets a good trip in their next start than we should see an improvement in Game Time performance figures.  Use the performance figures earned in Game Time last race (listed above) and compare them to the field and pars of Game Time next start.  If Game Time appears to have earned higher performance figures in the last race when running into trouble  as compared to the rest of the field’s expected perfomance in the upcoming race than there is a good chance that Game Time will dominate the race.
