The Cornfather’s pony’s in Philadelphia haven’t shown up the last two days, so he’s happy to head back to New York. He likes another big price today and that’s what I like most about the Cornfather. He plays for keeps.

Pony of the Day #3 Sicilia Mike (12/1) – This gelding took a while to break his maiden, but he has shown significant improvement since moving into trainer Gary Sciacca’s barn in July. In his last race going a mile, he was up close to a descent pace and ran 4th. That last race came up strong, with both the 1st and 2nd place finishers winning their next starts as well. Sicilia Mike should like the turnback in distance today and he should get pace to run at with speed horses drawn to both his inside and outside. With a 7-pound weight break on top of all that, the Cornfather is going to key him with the favorite in he trifecta. Both will hit the board and it will be a nice hump day score.
