Whitney Stakes (08/07/15)

In-depth analysis of the 2015 Whitney Stakes including Pace Figures and Form Cycle Pattern of each starter. Please refer to the Legend or Pattern Guide for back-up definitions and patterns.

The Grade I Whitney Stakes carries a purse of $1.25mm and is part of the Breeders' Cup “Win and You're In” Challenge Series. Run at 1 ¼ miles (10 furlongs), three year-olds and up are eligible, though this year, like 2014, only older runners are competing.

This is one of the most competitive fields we have seen in a Grade I race since the Breeders' Cup with five runners having earned over $1.5mm and seven of the ten starters already Grade I winners.

Here are the Pace Figures and Past Performances for the Whitney Stakes.

Liam's Map (6/1)

Another who has taken a run up the class ladder, Liam's Map tries Graded Stakes company for the first time. And if that's not enough, it's against a very deep field of Grade I competitors. Originally an $800k yearling purchase, Liam didn't get to the track until he was three (likely some sort of mild injury). Perennial leading trainer Todd Pletcher put on a training show getting Liam to this point. His first and only start this year was an easy win but do note it came against only three other runners.

His Pace Figures are impressive because of one reason; he ran a lifetime top 78.1 New Pace Top (NPT) in late December 2014 and followed it up with his first start in 2015 running a 79.7. Big race money rider jockey Mike Smith flies in from Del Mar to ride as both Castellano and Velazquez opt off (note that these two riders are often Pletcher's first call).

The Play: Too Slow – a very fast horse but have a feeling that the distance and class will catch up with him.
