Race 2: Radiant Beauty (#2)
The Pace Projector is predicting that she will be in front, and she has been very dangerous when able to secure the early lead.
Was overmatched two races back, when she was compromised by a fast pace.
Lost all chance after stumbling at the start last time, before making a 4-wide premature move.

Race 5: Candy Zip (#11)
The Pace Projector is predicting a fast pace, and he’s one of the few viable closers in the field.
His maiden win at Belmont last fall, albeit slow, may have been a stronger race than it appears given the subsequent performances of those behind him.
DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, Larry Rivelli is 33 for 91 (36 percent, $2.50 ROI) off layoffs of 180 days or more in sprints.

Race 8: Sir Ballantine (#1)
Have been waiting for this horse to stretch out around two turns since he got into Danny Gargan’s barn.
Was placed too close to a taxing pace last time.
Ran very well two back – his only start over a fast track this year – when he ran down the talented Exulting.
