Samitar tops Garden City probables

Samitar, winner of the Group 1 Irish One Thousand Guineas, was previously trained by Mick Channon, who sent the filly out for her North American debut in the Grade 2 Lake George Stakes on July 25 at Saratoga, a race Brown watched with interest. The three-year-old Rock of Gibraltar filly endured an eventful trip and was third in a blanket finish where less than 1 1/2 lengths separated the top six.

Stonestreet Stables' homebred Dreaming of Julia romped by an eye-popping 16 1/4 lengths in Sunday's $83,300 Meadow Star Stakes at Belmont Park, serving up a ferocious case of what-might-have-been. Exactly one week ago, the smashing debut winner had been withdrawn from last Sunday's Grade 1 Spinaway Stakes at Saratoga, where her entrymate Teen Pauline could do no better than a tiring third. The unambiguous result of the Meadow Star begs the question of how Dreaming of Julia would have handled the Spinaway.
