Don't Blink, Busy Week...

Starting tomorrow, Herringswell stables will be sprinkled across the mid-Atlantic racing scene throughout the work-week.

Tuesday Cozy Cottage and Rain Date will run at Delaware Park in the fifth and eighth races respectively. Cozy Cottage is knocking on the door of a maiden-breaking performance as she has been within 2 1/4 lengths in each of her three career starts, all of which were on Gulfstream Park's turf course. She will race without a price tag for the first time. Rain Date makes her return to the races. She has not ran since October.

Wednesday at Delaware we have a full-round of ammo with Sudden Shift, Irish Blarney, Glasgow Road, and Desertstormelite. Sudden Shift will look to return to his effort exhibited in his Gulfstream win, as he returns to the claiming ranks. Irish Blarney is a 3-year-old Perfect Soul colt, who will make his first start under Graham's care. Glasgow Road has not lost by more than 4-lengths in any of her past seven starts. Over those past seven she has reached the winner's circle three time. Desertstormelite, like Rain Date, has not ran since October. In her first start with Graham, she ran very well to finish second behind the stakes-performer Mushka at Keeneland.

No Use Denying highlights Thursday's entrants and looks primed to kick her near-miss habit. She lost her last three races by a total of about one length. I imagine she'll be the favorite in Pimlico's eighth, at the 1 1/16 miles distance where she has four seconds from five starts. Salsa Star makes her first start in America in the fifth. Magger Bags will run at Presque Isle while Promulgation hopes for no rain in a turf try.

Glamorous Gal will run in Pimlico's nightcap, the Hilltop. Graham will tighten her girth for the first time Friday afternoon, her previous 5 starts were under the watch of Simon Hobson. And A Cherry Tree will give it a try in Pimlico's fifth under Rafael Bejarano.
