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.
