#1
great party                          ptribbett barn                    p bangs                     6/1

This five year old son of Desert Party had a streak of six wins in a row broken last time out when he finished third at the “Lex Luthor Turf Endurance”. He too is entering his first Graded Stakes race of his career here today but posted big speed last time out and might be a nice surprise out of the one hole.

#2
see my shoes                      giunluigi barn                     t small                       4/1

This five year old son of Dylan Thomas has been very consistent in his races and has finished in the money in eighty-one percent of his starts. He is a one-time Local Champion having earned the honor last time out at the race in New South Wales where he kicked it into high gear at the half way mark and won easily. Entering his first Graded Stakes race of his career here today but has shown enough speed to compete against this competitive field of seven.

#3
royal blessing                     equistable barn                 t loesch                     7/2

This daughter of Giant’s Causeway has more than two-million dollars in earnings and has finished in the money in all but five of her starts. Her most recent win was at the “2018 Equinics” where she posted big speed to win by three lengths. She comes in well rested, will like this distance and should be one to reckon with here today.

#4
golden prince                    kevoman1 barn                  p harzheim              7/2

This four year old son of Golden Horn has finished in the money in all but one of his sixteen career starts including seven wins. His last start was an impressive show of speed at the “Streets of Fire Turf Slayer” at this same distance where he went wire to wire to win by almost two lengths. He enters his first Graded Stakes race here today but goes off as one of the favorites.

#5
outback gander                  outback5 barn                    m scott                     3/1

This five year old son of Speightstown has competed almost exclusively at Graded Stakes races since last March. In those eight races he has three runner up finishes and two third place finishes. His last start was a fifth place finish at the Grade 1 “John Scott Appreciation Stakes” where he showed nice speed but did not have the extra effort needed to finish in the money. He should be competitive here today and could challenge for a spot on the board.

#6
balthazar bux                    breedersden barn             a hudson                  8/1

This five year old son of Dalakhani enters his first Graded Stakes race here today after finishing second last time out at the “River JupiterTurf Slayer”. He has finished runner up or better in six straight races but might struggle here at this distance and against this field. He may be overmatched here in his first Graded Stakes race but should be one to watch in the future.

#7
tete chiron                         sabbath barn                      r gibson                    6/1

This four year old son of Le Havre is the youngest horse in the race and has had a very successful career thus far. He has earned more than two-million dollars and has had two wins at Grade 1 with the most recent being an easy wire to wire victory at the “Ackland Cup” where he won by more than four lengths. He will be one of the favorites here today.
