Race 7 Grade II Alysheba
Mckinzie (1): Just beat on a dirty head bob in the Santa Anita Handicap. The cut back to 1 1/16th should help his cause.
Tom’s d’Etat (2): Only poor race was the Pegasus where the track was a very sloppy speed bias. I am willing to give him another chance over a fast track.
Seeking the Soul (8): Did not fire in Dubai but deserves another chance over his home track where he has been in the trifecta 8 of 10 times.
Race 8 Grade I La Troienne
Teresa Z (7): Getting back to two turns should be right up this ones alley and picking up Johnny V is an added bonus at a big number.
She’s a Julie (1): Refound her form when winning the Bayakoa. She will be the one to run down in the stretch.
Golden Award (8): Ran a very uncharacteristic race last week but Mott comes back on two weeks rest which is unlike him so she must be doing fantastic.
Race 9 : 16-2-7-1
Race 10 Grade II Twinspires Turf Sprint
World of Trouble (6): Can run on turf, dirt, anything. He will be tough to beat here and a likely single.
Undrafted (8): Has not been seen since last fall so it looks like ward is pointing here as a possible prep for ascot. If the pace gets hot he will come running but he’s getting up there in age now.
Bound for nowhere (1): Just run down in the Shakertown and will be forced to go from the inside post so World of Trouble doesn’t get loose.
Race 11 Grade I Kentucky Oaks
Serengeti Empress (13): Bled in the Fairgrounds but her best race can win here and she will be an over lay. Her last workout was sensational.
Champagne Anyone (10): Should sit a great trip off the first wave of speed and get a jump on the deep closers.
Jaywalk (7): Third off the layoff she should be primed for a big effort for trainer John Servis who won this race with Cathryn Sophia.
Bellafina (4): She’s the one to beat and will be a short price but I don’t think she is a good bet here. Her numbers have not improved since she was a two year old.
