Behrnik’s Bank Trying to Cash In In $100,000 New York Stallion Stakes

Category : News - Fri 22/04/2016 - 12:33 EDT

On Saturday at Aqueduct, the featured race is the $100,000 New York Stallion Stakes. Restricted to three-year-old fillies sired by New York-based stallions, the race will be contested at six and a half furlongs and has drawn a field of eight.

Behrnik’s Bank has been tabbed as the morning line favorite at odds of 5-2 for owner and trainer Peter Kazamias. A dark bay daughter of Bank Heist, she was bred in Pennsylvania and has won two of her three starts and was a stakes winner as a juvenile. She has been freshened since a runner-up effort in December at Aqueduct and has been training steadily for her sophomore debut. Edwin Gonzalez will be aboard and they will break from the outside post.

Frosty Margarita a consistent contender

Second choice at morning line odds of 3-1 is Frosty Margarita for trainer Rudy Rodriguez. A dark bay daughter of Frost Giant, she is a homebred for Gabrielle Farm and has been first or second in all eight starts. She is trying to earn her fifth victory and is coming out of a second-place finish in the Franklin Square Stakes. Irad Ortiz, Jr. will be in the irons and they will break from post position three.

Graded stakes winner back against restricted company

Also in the field at morning line odds of 4-1 is Wonderment for trainer Ken McPeek. A gray daughter of Cosmonaut, she has won three of her four starts and is a graded stakes winner against open company. She was last seen winning the Bourbonette Oaks (G3) and will switch back to conventional dirt after competing on synthetics. Cornelio Velasquez will be aboard from post position six.
