New York Watch: Stopspendingmaria [01:28]
What do you do after you lose a horse you named after a loved one to a claim? If you are Mike Repole, you buy another horse and also name it after that person. Stopspendingmaria, whom Repole named in honor of his wife, drew off in hand to break her maiden by seven lengths on Thursday at Belmont Park and become the first 2-year-old featured in the New York Watch Series, which shines the spotlight on promising colts and fillies that have recently cleared the maiden and allowance ranks at Aqueduct Racetrack, Belmont Park, or Saratoga Race Course. Repole had already named a different horse, No Shopping Maria, after his wife, but was forced to part ways with the 5-year-old mare after she was claimed for $5000 at Laurel Park in January. "My wife doesn't know as much about racing, and she couldn't understand how I could sell her horse," said Repole. "I promised her I'd name another horse after her. She thought I'd name it 'Go Shopping Maria,' but I'd never do that. She thinks [the name is] hysterical. She won't stop shopping, but she thinks it's funny." Repole chose a 2-year-old filly he purchased at this year's OBS February Selected Sale of Two-Year-Olds in Training to be the second horse whose name was inspired by his wife's spending habits. "I've got to give the credit to my racing manager Jim Martin and Todd Pletcher," said Repole. "I wasn't at the sale as I was vacationing in the Caribbean. I was really looking for colts who could possibly go long, and I asked Todd if there ...

2010 Dwyer (G2) - Fly Down [03:32]
Fly Downs last-to-first victory in the Grade 2, $200000 Dwyer on a blustery Saturday afternoon at Belmont Park may have earned the colt a shot at the Belmont Stakes. The 3-year-old son of Mineshaft barreled into the lead rounding the far turn and pulled clear to a six-length win over 3-5 favorite Drosselmeyer in the Dwyer, which in its new spot on The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) calendar serves as a steppingstone to the 142nd running of the Grade 1, $1 million Belmont Stakes on June 5. Trained by Hall of Famer Nick Zito, who also has Kentucky Derby runner-up Ice Box under consideration for the final leg of racings Triple Crown, Fly Down covered the 1 1/8th miles in 1:50.25 as he extended his record to three victories from five starts. Well see what happens in the next 30 days, said Zito, a two-time winner of the 1 ½ mile Belmont, by telephone. He puts a lot into his races. If he has a good month, if he rebounds from this, if hes OK, well look at the Belmont. Fly Down, purchased for $80000 by owner Richard C. Pell at the 2008 Keeneland September Sale, broke his maiden going 1 1/16th miles at Churchill Downs in his second start as a 2-year-old, and then won a 1 1/8th mile allowance at Gulfstream Park to launch his sophomore campaign in February. Fly Down next finished ninth after being steadied in the March 27 Louisiana Derby at the Fair Grounds. Weve always given him a nice break between races, said Pell, a money manager from New York. Nick has told me from ...
