How to bet the 2024 East View Stakes

March 15th, 2024

Seven sophomore fillies will go postward in Sunday’s $100,000 East View S. at Aqueduct. The feature on the eight-race card will go through #1 Caldwell Luvs Gold, who will make her 2024 debut in the affair. Trained by Brad Cox, the Goldencents filly had a productive juvenile campaign, led by a score in the Seeking the Ante S. and placings in the Joseph A. Gimma S. and Maid of the Mist S., and she will be formidable against this cast.

East View Wagers

  • $5 superfecta: 1 with 7 with 6 with all ($20)
  • $5 superfecta: 1 with 7 with all with 6 ($20)
  • $2.50 superfecta: 1 with 6 with 7 with all ($10)

Purchased for $73,000 as a yearling, the New York-bred filly finished unplaced in the Demoiselle S. (G2) to conclude 2023 but lands in a much more reasonable spot on Sunday. Caldwell Luvs Gold is not especially swift from the gate but does possess a fine turn of foot. The filly has posted a handful of solid morning drills to prepare for her comeback, and I expect her to run down this cast in the stretch with Manny Franco taking the reins.

I’m not sure why #7 Bernietakescharge never fired last time out, but the Take Charge Indy filly had run a pair of big ones prior to that after having blinkers added, so I’ll give her a pass. The Domenick Schettino trainee was a sharp allowance heroine in December and followed up that performance with a fine second to My Mane Squeeze in the Franklin Square two back, and anything resembling either of those efforts makes her viable in this endeavor.

The dark bay filly has often displayed a measure of early speed and a good closing kick, and she fits well in this cast while receiving a nice draw on the outside of the field. She figures to sit a length or two off of the early tempo prior to moving into contention at the top of the lane. Regular pilot Trevor McCarthy will be in the stirrups atop the win threat.

#6 Rumint is the other horse in the cast that I will be using. The Munnings filly led throughout in a solid debut score on the surface, prior to being a non-factor in her stakes and route debut last time out. The Keri Brion pupil draws outside of the other pace in the race, and since those runners are unlikely to be in the hunt late, I’ll give this one a shot to be a factor into the stretch under the guidance of Kendrick Carmouche.
