Race 3: #6 Faith Pacer (3-1)
Trainer Jeff Bonde is 24% with first-time starters in MSW races and the sire Lucky Pulpit is 12% first time out while the dam’s sire (Meadowlake) is 18% with first-timers. This 2-year-old filly showed her readiness with a good work on April 29.
Race 6: #7 Henry’s Holiday (5-1)
When last seen, this 3-year-old was finishing fifth to American Pharoah in the Del Mar Futurity. That’s all you need to know about his class. He tries turf for the first time (sire is 13%) and he won his career debut last year so he can come out running after the layoff. Trainer Doug O’Neill is 30% from 20 starters with first-time geldings.
Race 8: #7 Archie Bunker (8-1)
Trainer Paddy Gallagher is 31% with first-time horses in a maiden claimer. This son of Arch (13% turf sire) gets a jockey change to the red-hot Flavian Prat.
