O Hopeful Stakes é uma corrida Grado I; disputada no hipódromo de Saratoga nos EUA; é a primeira prova Grado I da época para os cavalos de 2 anos.

Disputa-se sobre um percurso de 7 furlongs (~1400 mts) com cada cavalo a ter que suportar um handicap de 120 libras.

Com um prize money actual de 250 mil dólares; esta prova tem muita historia; tendo sido disputada pela primeira vez no ano de 1903.

Esta prova pode vir a ser fundamental para as hipóteses de estes mesmos cavalos com o objectivo de disputar a tripla coroa dos EUA no ano de 2011. Um dado estatístico interessante; 14 cavalos venceram o Belmont Stakes (ultimos escalao da tripla) o ano seguinte a ter conquistado a vitoria neste Hopeful Stakes.

Voltando a vertente histórica; alguns cavalos legendários venceram esta prova; nomeadamente Man O´ War (1919) e os dois ultimos animais em que conquistar a tripla coroa nos EUA, o Secretariat (1972) e o Affirmed (1977)



Mais recentemente; Afleet Alex venceu na edição do 2004; para logo vir a vencer 2 das 3 provas da tripla do 2005 (Preakness e Belmont)

A edição 2009 foi ganha pelo Dublin; cavalo que iria, posteriormente a participar em duas das 3 provas de tripla coroa neste 2010; primeiro no Kentucky derby sendo 7mo classificado (prova ganha pelo Super Saver) e logo no Preakness; onde foi 5to por detras do Lookin At Lucky

Como dado curioso; Dublin é filho do Afleet Alex.

Com o sucesso do Dublin, o treinador D. Wayne Lucas obtive a sua sexta vitoria neste Hopeful Stakes.

Lucas não tem qualquer cavalo na edição 2010; mas isso não resta competitividade a prova; muito pelo contrario


Vou começar com o favorito da prova (8-5) Boys At Tosconova; cavalo que custou apenas 35 mil dolares em leilao em Keeneland; estreou-se em grande no Kentucky Juvenile Stakes (30 de Abril em Churchill Downs) uma prova Grado 3; onde foi segundo classificado a menos de 2 corpos do vencedor

Logo a seguir; e já com o jockey venezuelano Ramon Alfredo Dominguez, Boys At Tosconova esmagou a concorrencia; deixando registo de 56.26; muito perto do melhor registo para essa distancia nesse mesmo hipodromo. Mais importante do que o registo, foi a facilidade com que o cavalo venceu a prova (12 corpos para o segundo lugar)

Após a vitoria; Dominguez mostrou-se impressionado com o cavalo

Citar
So much class, so much ability, he was outstanding (...) The sky is the limit

O seu treinador Richard E. Dutrow Jr.  espera muito deste cavalo;
Citar
His last race showed us he’s got a heck of a future and he’s been training unbelievable (...) He’s ready to improve if need be. It’s a very good challenge, and we can’t wait for the race."

Outro dos fortes candidatos pode vir a ser Stay Thirsty; cavalo que foi vendido por nada mais e nada menos do que 500 mil dólares; nos leiloes na Florida.

Treinado pelo Todd A. Pletcher; Stay Thirsty estreou-se igualmente com um segundo lugar no passado dia 15 de Agosto em Belmont Park

Stay Thirsty (4-1) somou a sua primeira vitoria, logo na sua segunda prova publica; foi cá mesmo em Saratoga; com o jockey John Velazquez; com uma margem acima dos 5 corpos.

O segundo favorito da prova (5-2)Wine Police Foi comprado por 190 mil dolares em leilao em Keeneland; defende o seu invicto; tendo ganho a única prova ate agora; foi no dia 24 de Julho, neste mesmo hipódromo com o jockey S Bridgmohan.

O jockey não escondeu o seu contentamento
Citar
The most impressive aspect of his debut was the way he relaxed and then when I asked him, how professional he was (...)Horses came around him, and he didn’t panic, and when I asked him to go, he took off

O treinador do Wine Police; leva um outro cavalo; o Chipshot (8-1); cavalo que soma 4 provas até o momento; sendo que venceu pela primeira vez na terceira tentativa; foi numa prova no hipodromo de Monmouth Park no mes de Junho.

A ultima corrida do Chipshot foi uma prova Grado 2; (25 de Julho) onde foi apenas 5to classificado.

Nessa prova Chipshot foi ultrapassado pelo Nacho Saint; que vinha de ser segundo classificado na unica vitoria do Chipshot ate agora.

Nacho Saint; ainda procura a sua primeira vitoria; tendo sido segundo classificado nas tres primeiras; incluindo uma por detras de Chipshot em Monmouth Park na sua estreia; e mais recentemente na já referida prova Grado II por detrás de Maybesomaybenot.

Settle for Medal estreou-se com um terceiro lugar precisamente por detras de um dos favoritos da prova Boys At Tosconova.

Odds-on choice Boys At Tosconova, under a hand ride from jockey Ramon Dominguez, showed his class with a measured win in the $250,000 Three Chimneys Hopeful Stakes (gr. I) on closing day at Saratoga Sept. 6

Just four 2-year-old colts contested the seven-furlong Hopeful after three scratches, and the presence of Boys At Tosconova could have had something to do with that. The son of Officer  --Little Bonnet, by Coronado's Quest, rated in third early, glided up on the outside effortlessly as they reached the head of the stretch, and outran pacesetter Stay Thirsty and Wine Police to the wire without ever being asked. The final time was a smart 1:23.27 over a fast track.

Boys At Tosconova is unbeaten in two starts for trainer Rick Dutrow since being purchased privately by Jay Em Ess Stable following a second-place finish in the Kentucky Juvenile Stakes (gr. III) in his debut at Churchill Downs April 30. He broke his maiden at five furlongs in his last start July 2 at Belmont Park by an eye-popping 12 lengths.

In his first race in more than two months, Boys At Tosconova had little difficulty negotiating the extra quarter mile of the Hopeful as the 1-2 choice. Stay Thirsty ran second in a game effort with Wine Police third. Settle for Medal trailed throughout.

Dutrow said Boys At Tosconova would be pointed directly to the $2 million Grey Goose Breeders' Cup Juvenile (gr. I) at 1 1/16 miles Nov. 6 at Churchill Downs.

"It’s a matter of two turns with him," he said, "and we certainly are not going to be afraid of it.”

Wine Police broke on top from the outside for Shaun Bridgmohan before settling into second behind Stay Thirsty, who hustled to the lead after stumbling at the break. Stay Thirsty, ridden by leading Saratoga jockey John Velazquez, clipped off fractions of :23.15 and :46.38 to lead Wine Police and an unhurried Boys At Tosconova, who was in the three path about three lengths behind the leader.

Boys At Tosconova began to move early on the turn and ranged up on the outside to get the lead mid-stretch. Dominguez gave Boys At Tosconova ($3.20, $2.20) one tap on the shoulder and then rode him smoothly the rest of the way as they edged clear of Stay Thirsty ($3.10), who was under energetic urging from Velazquez. Stay Thirsty finished 1 3/4 lengths clear of Wine Police. The $2 exacta was $11.40. There was no show wagering.

“He was good enough to get this job done, the right way," Dutrow said. "The first time we ran him, he didn’t break on the lead, and he was OK behind horses. The first time he had run, he came from dead last. It’s not like he needs the lead, as anyone can see. But if he ever does wind up on the lead, it’s going to be tough to pass him. It seems to us he has no limit. He’ll just keep running and running and running.
 
“We’re just excited to have him.," Dutrow added "He’s very exciting to be around. I was confident. I thought we had the best horse in the race. I told Ramon, 'If he breaks on the lead, let them just follow you around there; if not, that will work to our advantage because he loves a target.' I knew it was better to come from off the pace."

Dominguez, who also rode Boys At Tosconova in his Belmont win, said he was impressed with the way he handled a pair of speedy rivals.

"When he broke, I just decided to put him where he was comfortable, so I just eased him to the outside," he said. "He did it so easy and he even galloped out strong past the seven-eighths pole. It's really exciting for me because it's hard to come across a two-year-old this nice. Like every time you give him a chance he will take a deep breath, relax, and look around. He's very, very professional. I didn't have to hit him today and hopefully I won't have to. It was that easy."

The $150,000 winning share for the Hopeful brought Boys At Tosconova's career earnings to $202,060.

Bred in Kentucky by Hertrich/McCarthy Livestock, the dark bay or brown colt began his career with trainer Bob Hess Jr. after selling for $35,000 at the 2009 Keeneland September yearling sale.

Trainer Todd Pletcher noted that his colt, Stay Thirsty, was coming back on three weeks' rest after a 5 1/2-length maiden victory Aug. 14 at Saratoga.

"He stumbled pretty badly at the start, got up, recovered pretty well, it was a good effort,” he said.
