2020 Just A Game Stakes Handicapping
The feature of Saturday’s 11-race card at Belmont Park and one of four graded-stakes on the day, the (G1) Just A Game includes a pair of former Breeders’ Cup champions in its seven horse field.
Open to fillies and mares aged four and older, the Just A Game is run at one mile on the Belmont turf course.
Odds listed here are provided by Bovada’s racebook.
2020 Just A Game Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Uni Race Odds: 2-1
The UK-bred Uni was last seen beating males to win the 2019 Breeders’ Cup Mile, the most recent accomplishment in a career that has seen her win 10 of 18 starts, with 16 in-the-money finishes. In fact, she’s won eight of her last 10 stretching all the way back September of 2017.
That streak includes three wins on the Belmont turf, two of those at Saturday’s one-mile distance.
Chad Brown trains, Joel Rosario gets the call to ride.
2020 Just A Game Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Newspaperofrecord Race Odds: 2-1
While not quite as accomplished as her main rival, lightly-raced four-year-old Newspaperofrecord is Breeders’ Cup champ in her own right, having captured the 2018 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf event.
She threw in a bit of a clunker to close 2019, finishing ninth as the favourite while stretching out to a 1 1/4 miles distance that was perhaps a bit far to her liking. She gained some redemption in her 2020 debut when she won the (G3) Intercontinental Stakes at Belmont at a more suitable seven furlongs.
Another Chad Brown trainee, the jockey will be Irad Ortiz Jr.
2020 Just A Game Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Got Stormy Race Odds: 7-2
Second to Uni in the 2019 BC Mile, Got Stormy captured a pair of Grade 1 stakes last year, but has yet to find the winner’s circle in three starts in 2020. Two races back she took on the boys and finished a very respectable second in the (G1) Frank Kilroe Mile, beaten just a neck by the very good River Boyne.
She was a disappointing fourth last out in the (G3) Beaugay Stakes at Belmont, in a race where she bobbled at the start and may have lost all chance.
Mark Casse trains, Luis Saez will be in the saddle.
2020 Just A Game Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Beau Recall Race Odds: 12-1
The runner-up in this even last year, Beau Recall is an Irish-bred mare who has spent most of her career racing in southern California, although she does have stakes wins at Fair Grounds and Churchill Downs on her record.
After closing out 2019 with a second-place run as the favourite going 1 1/4 miles in the (G1) Rodeo Drive Stakes at Santa Anita, she was well beaten to open 2020 in the (G3) Old Forester Mint Julep Stakes at Churchill and is looking for a bounce-back effort here.
She’s trained by Brad Cox, while the jockey is Jose Ortiz.
Here’s my 2020 Just A Game Stakes Free Pick.
While there is some concern over if she’ll be in top form coming off the long layoff, based on past performance I have to give the nod here to Uni. Chad Brown is one of the top turf trainers in the US and should have her ready to go.
At 2-1 or better I’ll play her for the win, and hope to find some value by putting her on top of the exacta with both Got Stormy and Beau Recall underneath.
