New York Watch: Funfair [01:30]
Trainer Christophe Clement, who in recent years has won major turf races for older horses like the Arlington Million, Beverly D., Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Invitational, Man o' War, Shadwell Turf Mile, Sword Dancer Invitational, and Woodford Reserve Manhattan, continued his strong run with 2-year-olds during the 2012 Belmont spring/summer meet when Funfair debuted a 3 ½-length winner on the inner turf course. "This is a faster group of 2-year-olds [for me] than usual," said Clement, who unleashed impressive dirt winner Native One on July 4 and was second on the turf with Apple Cider on June 29. "It's nice for them to be doing well during this time of the year." Funfair demonstrated ample speed herself, dueling with Priscilla Marie, the lone starter with previous racing experience, to the furlong marker before shaking clear of the runner-up while being hand-ridden to the wire. Priscilla Marie was 2 ¾ lengths clear of third-place finisher Colorful Image. The final time for six furlongs was 1:08.63. Funfair paid $8.80 for a $2 win wager as the 3-1 second choice.

New York Watch: Crazy Party [02:03]
Last year's 2-year-old turf races at Saratoga Race Course were incredibly productive, with graded stakes winners Excited, JB's Thunder, More Than Real, Silver Medallion, and Winter Memories all having made winning debuts on the grass at the Spa. Crazy Party, who dashed clear to victory yesterday at Saratoga, will now attempt to follow in their footsteps. Crazy Party joins the New York Watch, which profiles promising maiden winners at Aqueduct Racetrack, Belmont Park, and Saratoga Race Course and featured JB's Thunder, More Than Real, and Winter Memories following their wins at the Spa last year. Always prominent, Crazy Party raced behind cover in third through fractions of 48.90 and 1:13.61, angled outside at the top of the stretch, and burst past the front runners to register a two-length victory over Regalo Mia. Crazy Party, who completed 1 1/16 miles on the turf in 1:43.09, ran the final sixteenth of a mile in a quick 5.58 seconds and returned $7.90 as the 5-2 second choice.
