Race 6: China Rider (#3)

  • Her recent win on dirt – not her preferred surface – demonstrates that she has regained top form.
  • Earned speed figures in turf sprints in early summer that would beat this field.
  • The Pace Projector is predicting that she will get a fast pace to close into.

Race 9: Zeke (#3)

  • Was visually impressive when he won his turf debut at Fair Grounds last December over some talented rivals.
  • Earned speed figures as a 2-year-old that put him on the cusp of being competitive here and he should have improved since then.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, Mike Stidham is 16 for 54 (30 percent, $3.34 ROI) off layoffs of 180 days or more on the turf.
