VIDEO: Dreaming of Julia fights for Frizette win

Dreaming of Julia came into the Grade 1 Frizette off of two ridiculously easy victories against over-matched competition. In her debut, she won by 10 1/2 lengths and barely had to break a sweat. In her last race in the ungraded Meadow Start Stakes, she won by 16 1/4 lengths with jockey John Velazquez hardly asking her to run a step. In Saturday's Frizette, Dreaming of Julia found herself in the first real race of her career.

Three pre-race scratches (two of which came after Roveing Patrol threw a fit in the starting gate), left the Frizette field with just four contenders and appeared to set up another Dreaming of Julia romp. My Happy Face broke well from the gate and established the lead along the rail with the heavy favorite stalking her every move. At the top of the stretch it looked like Dreaming of Julia would roll by the leader on her way to another glorified workout, but My Happy Face dug in gamely and extended the race all the way to the wire. At the end, Dreaming of Julia remained undefeated after her first real challenge.

Dreaming of Julia will head to Santa Anita to face off against Executiveprivilege in the 2012 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies on Friday, November 2nd.

VIDEO: Shanghai Bobby remains perfect

Shanghai Bobby kept his perfect record intact with an easy victory in the Grade 1 Champagne Stakes at Belmont Park on Saturday, October 6th. The Todd Pletcher trainee is now four-for-four in his brief career with victories in the Grade 2 Hopeful and now the Grade 1 Champagne.

The Champagne results came back strong in terms of speed figures; Shanghai Bobby earned a 94 Beyer Speed Figure and a 103 Equibase figure, the highest numbers for a juvenile colt in a graded stakes race this fall. The Brisnet figure will be released in the near future.

According to a report in the Daily Racing Form, the connections of Shanghai Bobby are not 100% certain to run in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile due to their plans for the colt in the spring of 2013. Part-owner Jack Wolf spoke about the reasons for skipping the Juvenile:

“I was a believer then, and I probably am still, that the horses that run in the 2-year-old Breeders’ Cup race don’t come back,” Wolf said. “With the exception of last year; last year was unbelievable how they came back."

If Shanghai Bobby does skip the Juvenile, the race loses arguably it's top contender on either coast.

King David Shocks At Belmont

It was an all "King" shocker at Belmont Park as King David beat King Kreesa to set off boxcar payouts in the Grade 1 Jamaica Stakes. King David was sent to post at odds of 28/1. King Kressa at odds of 23/1. Together, they keyed a $185.00 $1 Exacta and a $9.32.50 $1 Trifecta. The $0.10 Superfecta came back at a mouthwatering $467.05.

Pacific Classic winner Dullahan, sent to post as the 8/5 favorite, didn't get much of a pace to run at and was relegated towards the back of the pack at the wire.

King David is trained by Michael Maker and ridden by Rosie Napravnik.

Dreaming of Julia Edges Past My Happy Face

Facing just a field of three other rivals, Dreaming of Julia won a long stretch duel with My Happy Face to win the Grade 1 Frizette Stakes by a head at Belmont Park.
