Race 6: #8 American Merlot (8-1)
We’re going against the numbers a little bit here as trainer Chad Stewart is 0-for-15 first time turf, but this daughter of the Australian sire All American is 20% first time out and the dam’s sire (Unbridled Song) is 13% first time out. On top of that leading jockey Antonio Gallardo jumps on and he is 3-for-6 with Stewart at the meet.
Race 10: #6 Irish Jade (turf only) (6-1)
This gelding ran a decent race at this level in his first race in seven months last time out. He figures to be fitter here and trainer John Terranova is 6-for-15 at the meet.
