After two wins at Zia Park, this 3-year-old gelding, PAIN AND MISERY (6-1),  ends up in the Richard Mandella barn, which is 25% off a 61-180-day layoff and 36% going dirt to turf. Underrated jockey Flavian Prat takes the mount and he is 27% with Mandella. Look for the son of Bob and John to show plenty of speed.
