FIRST RACE: 1. Lucky Reality, 2. Stormin Trick, 3. Brimstoned. LONG SHOT: Sibernation.
Trainer Keith Desormeaux likes to have his 2-year-olds come from off the pace and this son of Curlin should like this extra furlong. Jockey Kent Desormeaux takes over and look for big improvement the colt’s second race.
SEVENTH RACE: 1. #10 Show Stealer, 2. Chaulk O Lattey, 3. Zanbo. LONG SHOT: Taylor Lane.
Trainer Art Sherman and jockey Gary Stevens just scored with a long shot on the turf that owner George Krikorian acquired and they try again in this spot. This filly has been training well and Sherman is 20% in route races.
Jockey Rafael Bejarano rides this 3-year-old filly for the third straight time, but first time going long on the turf. Bejarano is 26% with trainer Peter Eurton. This daughter of Blame should enjoy two turns and being out of a Storm Cat mare (18% first time turf) should help.
