Race 2: Perina’s Pride (#5)
Exits the barn of Gaston Grant (59 TimeformUS Trainer Rating) and moves to Robertino Diodoro (91 TimeformUS Trainer Rating).
Is in the best form of her career.
Should appreciate the slight stretch-out in distance.

Race 6: Noble and True (#1)
Stretches out to a more appropriate distance after going too short in his last two starts.
May get a fair pace to close into if Honor and Pleasure and Driven West hook up in the early going.

Race 7: Quai Voltaire (#4)
Was facing a tougher group when outrun in his first start against winners last time.
Has run two of the best races of his career going today’s one-mile distance.
Beat Givetheman A Cigar two back, and that’s the same horse that morning-line favorite J J’s Dreaming defeated by a similar margin in his maiden score.
