Race 5 Juvenile Turf Sprint
Kimari (7): Has been very impressive in two starts since returning from Ascot and showed a new dimension rallying from off the pace in her last start when tackling the boys.
A’ Ali (10): Boasts a good record at the distance overseas and gets one of the world’s top riders.
Four Wheel Drive (9): Has been impressive in his two career starts and brings the best numbers into the race.
Chimney Rock (1): A couple near misses in his last two but should get the pace to run at here for a piece. Tough post draw.
Race 6 Juvenile Turf
Vitalogy (5): Had an absolute disaster trip when running second in the G3 Bourbon at Keeneland and deserves a major shot here at a big price.
Decorated Invader (4): Won relatively easy in Woodbine and should get an ideal pace scenario again here to make his one big run.
Arizona (12): Ran behind what many overseas believe is the next big thing. Tough post draw but ligitimate favorite.
Structor (2) : Has had two visually impressive runs and looks to be the real deal here.
Race 7 Juvenile Fillies
Wicked Whisper (7): Looks to be far and away the most talented of the group if she can handle the two turns she’s the one to beat for me.
Bast (6): Was not as visually impressive as she was in her last win when stretching out to two turns for the first time. We all know how Baffert gets on these big weekends, everything is LIVE she’s the likely favorite.
British Idom (4): She was very impressive in taking the Alchabides in a quick time and visually, looking good.
Donna Veloce (1): Likely to go favored off the big maiden score but stretching out for the first time there are questions and makes it hard to take a short price but a contender none the less.
Race 8 Juvenile Fillies Turf
Daahyeh (5) : Looks to be the most talented of the Euros coming over for world class trainer Roger Varian.
Albigna (9): Has yet to put up a bad effort. Looks to be second best of the Europeans.
Selflessly (13): Trainer Chad Brown has won this event 5 of the 11 times and in the last 3 tries. Would have loved to make her the top pick but the draw made it difficult.
Sweet Melina (12): Has been very impressive since making the switch to turf and looks to be the one they will all have to run down.
Crystalle (7): Very talented filly but she is also very pace dependent.
Race 9 Juvenile
Dennis Moment (1): He tossed the jock in his first start and has dominated in his two races since showing he’s what we all heard he was before his debut. He will be a handful in this race.
Eight Rings (6): Lost his jock in his second start like Dennis Moment but came back to win by daylight in his prep over the SA surface.
Maxfield (9): His maiden race has come back to produce some winners and he was bet like a good thing in his last effort when romping in the BC Futurity.
Race 10: 13-8-5-11
