OffTrackBetting.com - Belmont Park in Elmont, New York will be the scene of the G3 Peter Pan Stakes on Saturday, May 13. Horses three years old will be featured when they take to Belmont Park's dirt track and race 1 1/8 miles for the winner's share of the $200,000 purse.
A field of six will line up in the Peter Pan Stakes - race 4 on Belmont Park's busy Saturday schedule. Post time is 3:00 PM. Here is a peek into the past performances of all six combatants for this G3 stakes - the traditional local prep to the G1, $1.5 million Belmont Stakes on June 10.
Master Plan - Todd Pletcher trained colt was an Alternate Entry to the Kentucky Derby. He broke maiden in his second career start and went on to a second in the minor Pulpit Stakes at Gulfstream in December and a nice win in the minor OBS Championship (Colts and Geldings Division) Stakes by 2 1/2 lengths at Ocala Training Center. He took his show to Dubai where he finished a good third in the Group 2 UAE Derby at Meydan in March. Master Plan has how hit the board in his last four starts overall (two wins, a second and a third place finish) and has looked sensational in recent training. He is expected to be competitive again Saturday with John Velazquez tabbed to ride from the rail.
Timeline - will hit the track for the third time for trainer Chad Brown looking to remain unbeaten. He steps into stakes company for the first time off an impressive 13 1/2 length Allowance score with a field-high 101 Beyer Speed Figure at Aqueduct April 6 and a dominant maiden score at first asking at Gulfstream March 4. Timeline hasn't been touched so far and hopes to keep the streak alive in his big jump up in competition Saturday with Javier Castellano in the reins from gate 2.

Impressive Edge - Dale Romans trained colt has two wins in his six career starts. He finished sixth in his first two career starts and finally broke maiden by 4 3/4 lengths- at Gulfstream January 15. He followed that with a fourth in the G2 Swale Stakes on that track February 4, an Allowance Optional Claiming score there March 5 and an OK fourth last time out in the G1 Florida Derby April 1. Impressive Edge has been up and down in his career but has won two of his last four starts overall. He tries for a first stakes score Saturday having earned the bullet for a half-mile move in :47 4/5 May 8 at Churchill - from gate 4 with Luis Saez scheduled to ride.
Meantime - has placed in all three career starts for trainer Brian Lynch - one win, one second and one third place finish. He makes his stakes debut Saturday having finally broken maiden y 7 1/2 lengths in gate-to-wire fashion last time out at Keeneland April 22 after a third and a second respectively in a pair of MSW races to start his career. Meantime has improved every time out and hopes to continue the upward trend from post 3 with Jose Ortiz aboard.
Take Your Guns - has two career starts for trainer Chad Brown with one win and a third place finish. He makes his stakes debut Saturday off a 2 1/2 length maiden score at Keeneland April 15 which followed a third in his debut at Gulfstream February 18. Take Your Guns has been OK so far and hopes to make a statement in his step up in competition from the outside gate 6. Joel Rosario will be in the irons.
Lookin At Blessing - has just one win and a third place finish in nine career starts. He arrives in a bit of a funk having failed to place in his last six starts. Last time out was a fifth in the G3 Lexington Stakes at Keeneland April 15 which followed another fifth in an Allowance Optional Claiming March 4 and a fourth, an eighth and an eleventh respectively in a trio of Allowance Optional races this past winter. He also posted a sixth in the G1 Champagne Stakes on this very track in October. Lookin At Blessing hasn't been all that great lately and shoots for a first stakes score from post 5 Saturday. Kendrick Carmouche rides.
