mad fangs amir1624 barn p rodman 16/1
This two year old son of Intrinsic tries Graded Stakes for the first time here today after finishing in the money in three of his first four races. He had a win last time out at an allowance race in early May in England. His speed figures will need to take a big jump here today if he hopes to compete against this field of thirteen.
sunstay drsafebreds7 barn b tatum 17/1
This two year old son of Global View had a win last time out at a race in France that covered five and a half furlongs. This field will be stronger than what he faced there so he will have to bring something extra to be in the mix at the finish.
mourning rainbow sjmeola20 barn l hodges 8/1
This two year old son of Dawn Approach has gotten off to an impressive start in his young career with three wins in his first four starts including his last at the “Prados Big Fan Turf Juvenile”. He comes in well rested and should like this distance and go off as one of the favorites out of the three hole.
choisy clokey barn b tate 7/1
This two year old son of Denman had an impressive debut with a big 76 speed win at this same distance at a race in Australia. One race does not make a career so it is hard to know how he will respond here in just his second start. I think he will be a force to be reckoned with here today and should hit the board in his first Graded Stakes.
internationalflint lyphard99 barn j francis 8/1
This two year old son of Flintshire ran 54 speed in his only career start in a win against a CPU field. He was not tested there so hopefully he responds well to the competition and shows his owner and the field what he is made of. I don’t think he will be a factor here.
needs weeds adeeprock0 barn g joyce 6/1
This two year old son of Awtaad enters just his second race here after posting a big win and 80 speed at an allowance race in his first career start. He will face better competition here but should still have a good showing and be one to look for at the finish line.
ridge of stars skyfield barn w moss 8/1
This two year old son of Tanino Gimlet is perfect in his first two starts with both covering four and a half furlongs. He should respond well to the extra distance as he had lots left in both and his blood lines preferred longer distances. Interested to see if he has what it takes to win at this level.
danzilly nycowboyca barn s dunlap 16/1
This two year old son of Zoffany started his career with win at this distance back in January. Since then he has been disappointing in two starts having finished tenth and eleventh. He will hope to rebound here but probably will not be a factor.
hooded spirit seattle barn j bradley 7/1
This two year old son of Dark Angel has one of the highest speed ratings of any of the entries to date having posted 78 speed last time out at a win in Ireland. He comes in well rested and hopes to build on that first place outing with another win here today out of the nine spot. He deservingly should go off as one of the favorites.
gulching cross wyndaway barn k french 13/1
This two year old son of Adelaide has finished in the money in two of his three career starts including a win at this distance back in April. He should be comfortable here in his first Graded Stakes and hopes to find a spot on the board against this close field.
excels ridge deeprock48 barn j delaney 15/1
This two year old son of Fiorente has finished in the money in two of his first three career starts with the last being a third place finish against a small field of four. He will have to contend with more traffic today and against better competition. It will be interesting to see how he responds
nijinsky trail ekingman barn n eadens 14/1
This two year old son of Footstepsinthesand had a win last time out at an allowance race in Ireland over six and a half furlongs. He has had a nice two month break and should be fresh and ready to compete in just his third career start.
pick dem off chino16 barn e newcomb 5/1
This two year old son of KIng Kamehameha has raced just once but showed nice 74 speed to take home his first race that covered six furlongs in Louisiana. Hopefully he will respond well to the shorter distance and will hit the board here again today. Hard to bet against that debut speed.
