Curlinello maiden debut 8-21-10 [03:36]
Curlinello won over the speed favoring Saratoga track on August 21, going 7F in 1:24.53. He's a full brother to Arlington Classic winner Pleasant Strike, but has a strong dirt pedigree, especially for the mud. This is a colt with the pedigree to enjoy two turns and the clout of a distaff family to make him a serious horse to watch.

2010 King's Bishop Stakes [01:46]
If there was any question about who is the top 3-year-old sprinter on the East Coast, Discreetly Mine answered it emphatically Aug. 28. The son of Mineshaft rolled through blistering fractions on the speed-favoring Saratoga main track and held off a pair of rivals to win the $250000 NetJet King's Bishop Stakes for his first grade I win. Johnny Velazquez, who earned his third victory in the prestigious race, piloted Discreetly Mine to a 1 1/4--length win in a final time of 1:23.16 for seven furlongs on the fast dirt. It was the third consecutive graded stakes win for the bay colt, who has found a home sprinting after cutting back from a failed try in the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) in May. Todd Pletcher trains the homebred for E. Paul Robsham Stables.

New York Watch: JB's Thunder [02:15]
JB's Thunder made some noise at Saratoga Race Course when he scored by 1 ¾-lengths in his debut, a 1 1/16th-mile event over the Mellon Turf Course on Saturday. With the victory JB Thunder joins the New York Watch, which profiles up-and-comers that have recently cleared the maiden ranks at Aqueduct, Belmont Park, and Saratoga. Unchallenged for the early lead, JB's Thunder was kept under a snug hold by Shaun Bridgmohan as he carved out fractions and 49.93 and 1:14.31 while receiving mild pressure from Bonaroo. After Bridgomohan shook the reins at the top of the stretch, JB's Thunder opened to a three length advantage and was never threatened as Santiva reduced the final margin to 1 ¾ lengths. "He's a sharp horse -- he's good in the gate and is very intelligent," said winning trainer Al Stall, Jr. "He had done everything right to this point, and I thought he'd lay close. I told Shaun, 'Take what they give you on the front end. He took the lead comfortably because a couple of horses took back. But if someone had gone to the lead, he would have been able to rate off of them. On the first turn I felt very good. His ears were flicking back and forth on the backside, and he was able to kick." JB's Thunder trained on dirt at Churchill Downs and at Saratoga earlier in the summer before Stall elected to try the son of Thunder Gulch on the Oklahoma Turf Course on August 11. After working four furlongs around dogs in 48.90, handily, Stall decided to keep the bay colt on the grass. "As ...
