Race 8: Carthon (#3)
- The Pace Projector is predicting that he will be clearly in front early in a situation favoring the leaders.
- Ran deceptively well last time after setting a fast pace and hanging for third while his early pace rival faded to last.
- Should appreciate the return to a flat mile after running well to win at this distance three back.
