Sadler's Joy, now 6, ran at the Spa each of the last four years. Trying to be coy
here and not revealing proprietary information, SJ ran a TG number at the Spa as a
4YO and as a 5YO which would put him in the thick of this.
Sadler's Joy has won six of 23 lifetime starts, which is noteworthy in that his
trainer perennially maintains a strike rate around 10%.
A multiple winner at the Spa and the field's top earner (he has banked over $1.5M
at this distance), his running style makes him admittedly pace and trip dependent.
Lezcano replaces Castellano, who had SJ in a tight spot in his 6YO debut.
SJ will be on my multiple race tickets, and might get some vertical and or
straight play if closer to 9/1 than the 9/2 ML.
