Faypien (8): What else can we say about Bob Baffert shipping in to the east coast lately? He has been unstoppable. She is the class of the race on the turn back and will be tough to beat.
Cursor (6): Will get a ton of pace to run at in this spot and 30-1 is a great value on a horse who has always wanted to sprint.
Vertical Oak (5): The Victory Ride was significantly changed when the speed was allowed to walk. She will get a better shot in this spot.
Gun Runner (6): If it was not for the best horse of our generation Arrogate, he is a Dubai World Cup champion. The outside post will allow him to do whatever he wants.
Keen Ice (5): He always runs his race and gets in the money. He is coming off the best race of his career and gets the track he pulled a shocker on in the Travers. If someone has a shot to beat the Champ it’s him.
Tu Brutus (4): Ran two impressive races before going flat in the Brooklyn. He deserves another look at a price here.
Sassy Little Lila (2): Takes the drop from the Just a Game to this spot and looks to be lone speed on the front end. She will be tough to run down.
Boreale (5): Motion is very good with spotting these types when they come from over seas. If he is electing to go to a stake off the win at Delaware, take notice.
On Leave (7): Third off the layoff, she is primed for a monster effort here but with not much speed singed on she will have a lot to do.
Always a Suspect (4): Mclaughlin has been ready with this type of runner all meet long and I’m expecting a big effort out of this one off the brief freshening.
Mo Town (6): Maybe he was just always meant to go shorter. He was highly regarded as a two year old and attracts one of the leading jockeys at the current meet.
Neolothic (7): Coming back from the race in Dubai which will make him over bet. He is better going longer. This looks like a tune up for the Woodward closing weekend.
