The Fort Marcy – Grade III
5/2/2015 13:40 4/30/2015 3:00 BEL Race #3 1 1/8m InTurf Graded Stake
Purse $150.000 For Four Year Olds And Upward.
Christmas Spirit
Owner: Nakamura Stables
2015: (625 127 .20)
Jockey: Velasquez C H
2015: (70 10 .14)

Hard knocking veteran comes into this one off an Allowance win at Golden Gate. He may not be what he used to be but atleast he returns to the Winners’ Circle. Hopefully he can build off that victory and gain some confidence back as he races some interesting newcomers.
Two Smoking Barrels
Owner: Cajun Stables
2015: (121 19 .16)
Jockey: Franco M
2015: (42 2 .05)

Two Smoking Barrels was narrowly defeated last time in the Appleton. Although a solid effort he is yet to win a race going long and that will certainly work against him if the others are on their game on his occasion.

Honorable Eight
Owner: Boulevard
2015: (333 80 .24)
Jockey: Silvera Ru
2015: (4 1 .25)

You could have claimed this horse for $7.000 the last two times and that goes to show you how must this horse steps up in class. The step up will prove as a challenge but off that stellar win and very fast final time who knows, he may end up in the mix.
Little Chili
Owner: Threshold
2015: (555 92 .17)
Jockey: Rice T B
2015: (21 2 .10)

Little Chili changes coasts after an Allowance win at The Great Race Place. Although impressive it was his first turf win and he faces competition that is used to the surface and has been proven over it. Distance will not be a problem based off that last effort so expect a late run.

Black Vintage
Owner: Downwind Stables
2015: (215 43 .20)
Jockey: Arroyo A S
2015: (101 18 .18)

Ran third in the Muniz Memorial but he never made a winning move. With little speed in here he won’t have it easy getting to the front runners on the way home. Nevertheless, he is talented and Downwind seems to have this horse in tip top shape.
