cosmic conflict                        marsattack barn                       b renfroe                      2/5

This four year old son of ADLERFLUG has finished in the money in fifteen of his eighteen career starts including an impressive nine wins. He comes in off a win last time out at this distance as he ran 107 speed to take home the “Ale N Skittles Turf Slayer”. He comes in on just four weeks rest but should still have enough in the tank to go off as one of the favorites here today.


shadowed forever                     fairhaven9 barn                        g giant                        8/5

This five year old son of KITTEN’S JOY has finished in the money in nineteen of his twenty-nine career starts including eight wins. He has earned more than half a million dollars with three Stakes wins and some success at Grade 2 contributing greatly to that total. He likes this distance and has a lot of experience here with eleven of his starts covering the two mile distance. He should be in the mix here and should find a spot on the board.


music pxg                                thornhill barn                           j malon                                    6/1

This five year old son of CAL NATION has finished in the money in seven of his eight career starts and comes in off back to back finishes at allowance races that both covered eleven furlongs. He showed impressive 106 speed last time out which was his first start after being gelded. He has responded well to the extra distance so far and looks like he should have enough to stretch it out to this distance here today. He might be a nice surprise to find a spot on the board here today out of the three hole.


frosty force                                    castaspell1 barn                   r revei                        563/1

This six year old son of HIGH CHAPARRAL has raced just eight times in his career and had one win way back in February of 2016. He had seven starts in that year and last raced in August of 2017 when he finished fourth at an allowance race that covered fourteen furlongs. It will be interesting to see how he responds here today and if he can have any success as an inexperienced older horse.


cowtown strike                  cave barn                                        l lee                             97/1

This five year old son of COWTOWN CAT has finished in the money in eight of his eighteen career starts including a couple of wins with the last coming in late November of 2016 prior to a long break before returning to the track just two months ago. His two starts this year have resulted in six and a twelve place finishes. He stretches things out here for the first time with his previous longest start being at nine furlongs.

  1. Nice review. Cosmic a clear favorite as Shadow may be show his age, but I kinda like Music as an upset choice!
