Amerman Racing’s homebred Oscar Performance has done little wrong in his last two starts, including a 10 1/4-length romp upon graduation Aug. 20 and then a six-length tour de force in the Pilgrim Stakes at Belmont Oct. 1. A brother to multiple stakes winner Oscar Nominated, whom the Amermans lost to Kenneth and Sarah Ramsey in a claiming event last fall, the son of Kitten’s Joy appears to be one of the horses to beat for trainer Brian Lynch.

John and Jerry Amerman, the former a previous CEO at Mattel Toys, and their Amerman Racing have done very well in just three starts at the Breeders’ Cup, including a victory by Adoration in the 2003 Distaff and a third-place finish by Siphonic in the Juvenile two years prior. Additional top horses carrying the Amerman dark blue and white — an operation that has won a graded stakes every year but two over the last 17 seasons — include Lido Palace, Spoken Fur, Balance and Happyanunoit.

Lynch has had two starters in the Breeders’ Cup, including Grand Arch, who finished third in last year’s Mile. A multiple Grade 1 winning conditioner, he has enjoyed a fruitful year with such top horses as Heart to Heart, Lightstream, and Baciami Piccola taking down graded stakes for him. The Australia native, a former bull rider and ex-assistant to the great Bobby Frankel, is striking at 18% and has earned more than $3 million so far this year.
