Race 1: Miss Marissa (#7)

  • Took money in her debut and ran to the support in a solid second place finish.
  • Should improve with turf and added distance, since she hails from a stamina-oriented grass family.
  • Will go off at a bigger price than she really should due to the low-profile trainer.

4-1 on ML


Race 3: Wild Boar (#2)

  • Showed some ability on dirt last year and has a right to run faster speed figure as a 3-year-old.
  • His dam was clearly best on turf and he’s by good turf sire Tale of the Cat.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: John Kimmel is 5 for 25 ($6.64 ROI) with maidens trying turf for the first time over the past 5 years.

5-1 on ML


Race 6: Cheatam Hill (#2)

  • Showed flashes of ability over the winter and it’s interesting that Servis immediately puts her on turf upon return.
  • Her sire Bellamy Road is not the greatest turf influence, but her dam’s best foal is 2-time turf winner Vip Nation.
  • DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past 5 years, Jason Servis is 6 for 25 (24%, $2.29 ROI) with horses trying turf for the first time in routes.
