Deterministic Will Make Turf Debut in Manila Stakes

Trainer Christophe Clement has announced that Grade 3 Gotham winner Deterministic will make his turf debut in the nine-furlong Grade 3, $250,000 Manila Stakes on June 29 at Belmont. Other graded stakes will be a part of the horse racing schedule

Owned by St. Elias Stables, Ken Langone, Steven Duncker, and Vicarage Stable, Deterministic has shown promise on dirt and is now exploring potential on grass.

Deterministic, a dark bay colt by Liam’s Map, made waves earlier this year on the Kentucky Derby trail. He secured a two-length victory in the one-turn mile Gotham Stakes on a sloppy track on March 2, upsetting offtrack betting predictions. 


Deterministic in Numbers

The Best Horse Racing Odds- Deterministic on Manila StakesThis impressive win came nearly seven months after his maiden victory at Saratoga Race Course, where he overcame a troubled start to win by a half-length.

In his recent performances, Deterministic finished off-the-board over nine furlongs at Aqueduct. He placed eighth in the Grade 2 Wood Memorial on April 6 and fifth in the Grade 3 Peter Pan on May 11. 

His recent workouts are promising, clocking five furlongs in 1:01.22 on turf and five-eighths in 1:03 on dirt, both at Saratoga.

“He worked well. I’m happy with him,” Clement remarked. “He won the Gotham on a wet track and was disappointing in the Wood. I’ve wanted to try him on the turf ever since, and now we’ve had the chance to train there. He moves like a dream on the grass. He’s a good horse, and I have not given up on him.”

Bred in Kentucky by Hinkle Farms, Deterministic was a $625,000 purchase at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale. He is out of the winning Speightstown mare Giulio’s Jewel, and his third dam, Amelia, produced graded stakes winners Rainha Da Bateria, Assateague, and Kindergarden Kid. All these stats are horse racing odds changers for this horse in the upcoming races.

West Point Thoroughbreds and Steven Bouchey’s Grade 1 winner Carson’s Run has drawn post 6 for SSunday’s$100,000 Tale of the Cat Stakes at Monmouth Park. The 1 1/16-mile turf test for sophomores marks Carson’s Run’s return to form after a prosperous 2-year-old campaign. The Cupid chestnut won his debut, placed second in the Grade 3 With Anticipation, and won the Grade 1 Summer Stakes at Woodbine.

Carson’s Run was disqualified in the Woodhaven Stakes on April 27 after interference and faced challenges in the Grade 1 BBreeders’Cup Juvenile Turf. Despite setbacks, he has been training consistently at Belmont Park, recently running a half-mile in 49.54 seconds.

Trainer Clement is optimistic about Carson’s Run’s upcoming race. “He’s doing well since. He had a mental issue—he tried to bore out on the turn, but he seems to be OK in the mornings, so it’s time to run,” Clement said. Given his past performances and recent training, Carson’s Run could be a promising option for bettors looking at the horse racing odds.

Clement also mentioned LSU Stables’ Far Bridge, last year’s Grade 1 Belmont Derby Invitational winner. Far Bridge recently finished third in the Grade 1 Resorts World Casino Manhattan on Belmont Stakes Day at Saratoga. 

Clement may enter Far Bridge in the Grade 2 Bowling Green on July 28 or the Grade 2 United Nations at Monmouth Park on July 20.
