FIRST RACE: 1. Sunland Vintage, 2. Clearly Confused, 3. Joint Attempt. LONG SHOT: Second Time.
SECOND RACE: 1. Addendum, 2. No Tricks for Jack, 3. Quinnette. LONG SHOT: Rossi Reserve.
THIRD RACE: 1. Kafister, 2. Close to the Edge, 3. Newfound Gold. LONG SHOT: Gal Has to Like It.
Trainer Ron Ellis makes a key jock switch here on KAFISTER going from apprentice Irving Orozco to journeyman Victor Espinoza, who has won 30% of his mounts for Ellis the last two years. This gelding takes a class drop and just throw out his last disaster.
FOURTH RACE: 1. Right On Schedule, 2. Gold Tie Please, 3. Dynamite Wind. LONG SHOT: Eat My Bubbles.
FIFTH RACE: 1. Moone’s My Name (SCRATCHED), 2. Gulsary, 3. Fanticola. LONG SHOT: Lady Ten SCRATCHED. New order: 1. Gulsary, 2. Fanticola, 3. Charlie Em .LONG SHOT: Dancingtothestars.
SIXTH RACE: 1. Little Curlin (best bet), 2. Pimpernel, 3. Garen. LONG SHOT: Roger Rocket.
This son of Curlin was 5-1 in his debut at Keeneland and finished a fast-closing fourth, but he is likely more suited for the dirt. Jerry Hollendorfer has been handed the keys and puts barn favorite Rafael Bejarano in the saddle.
SEVENTH RACE: 1. Moulin de Mougin, 2. Smart N Dreamy, 3. Oscillator. LONG SHOT: Bee Brave.
EIGHTH RACE: 1. Hear the Ghost, 2. Shakin It Up, 3. Zeewat. LONG SHOT: Heir of Storm.
NINTH RACE: 1. Dancinginthestreet, 2. Kitten de Pere, 3. Practising. LONG SHOT: Perfect Cursive.
