Race 3: Vicar’s Legend (#3)
Was facing a tougher field last time
Ran his career best race over a fast track following a series of wet track performances, and should get dry going again this time.
New rider Paco Lopez can keep him closer to the early pace, which usually results in his better performances.
8-1 on ML
Race 5: Highland Sky (#6)
Nine furlongs on turf is the perfect distance for him.
May appreciate the move to the outer turf course, since he’s a horse that tends to make wide moves.
Ran very well in a few starts last year despite losing as the favorite on multiple occasions.
9-2 on ML
