Race 3: Connie A (#3)
Was wide against gold rails in each of her last two starts.
Has run competitive speed figures in the past.
Would appreciate moisture in the track, since her only win came over a sloppy surface.
4-1 on ML
Race 8: Roman Approval (#1)
Should play out as the controlling speed in race where he is the only front-runner.
Mike Maker does extremely well first off the claim with his turf runners and this horse has run well for him before.
Has never been out of the exacta at this distance.
5-1 on ML
Race 9: Caitriona (#9)
Showed ability as a two-year-old and may have needed her return to the races.
Is bred to handle turf since his dam hails from a solid grass family.
Jeremiah Englehart had an excellent record with his turf sprinters on the NYRA circuit last year.
10-1 on ML
