Race 2: #7 Later My Love
Trainer Jeff Bonde is 24% with maiden debuters. This filly has been training well and is bred to win early being out of Lucky Pulpit (13%) and a Mr. Prospector (22%) mare. Fernando Perez (22% with Bonde) rides.
Race 3: #3 Grand Yodeler (turf only)
Trainer Eddie Truman has been on fire (47% at the meet) and really hot with horses going down the hill. Truman is 21% with horses going from dirt to turf and jockey Kent Desormeaux rides back.
Race 8: #8 Native City
Trainer Peter Miller is 27% first-time starters in a maiden claiming race and the sire City Zip is 15% first out. Jockey Tyler Baze, who is 25% with Miller, rides.
Race 6: #2 Courageisamajority (turf only)
This 3-year-old filly came with a furious kick down the lane to just miss in her last start at Aqueduct. Jockey John Velazquez stays on for trainer Graham Motion (2-for-7 in the last 60 days) and she has the best late pace ratings.
Race 9: #5 Jackson N Leonard (turf only)
Trainer Dominick Schettino hit with a bomb on Wednesday, but this gelding won’t be that price. Sire by Colonel John, this 3-year-old woke up on the grass and should love the added distance in this spot. Look for him to come from off the pace.
Race 8: #6 Teniente Coronel (6-1)
Trainer Tom Amoss has huge numbers in a lot of categories so if we get this morning-line it will be a miracle. Amoss is 38% second off the claim and 40% with horses second time in his barn. Another sired by Colonel John, should like the added distance and jockey James Graham sticks.
