Key Horse Picks: Friday September 2 2005

Good morning, everyone --

My Free Pick for today:

Saratoga 7th Race 4:15pm US Eastern Time

Cab #4 (ML 3-1) Cab returns for a second lifetime start after
finishing second in his debut Aug 6. In that race, he lost by one-half
length. He was bumped at the start and quickly recovered to duel Disco
Son in the fastest-paced two-year-old maiden sprint of the New York
season. Disco Sun ended up finishing last, but returned to wire the
field in his next race a week later. The fifth-place finisher in that
same Aug 6 race came back to win at Delaware by 11-plus lengths. So Cab
has beaten two horses who had come back and won; that makes this race a
key race. Without Disco Sun to battle for the lead, Cab may be able to
wire the field or set the pace that J.D. Bailey will choose.

The colt has Steve Asmussen, the top juvenile trainer, and J.D Bailey
up. With this team behind him, the horse looks unbeatable.

John Kimmel's Marrouche #8 (not a Key Horse here) could be the long
shot who will make the Perfecta with Cab a worthwhile bet. Marrouche
will be going from turf to dirt and had a good work Aug 22, a 5-furlong
breeze at 1:00 flat. Although this horse is a long-shot choice, the
only Key Horse in the race is Cab.

Best of luck today and always to everyone. To your Wealth!
