Race 7: Blue Atlas (#5)

  • Has improved since the trainer switch to Horacio DePaz, who can win at Saratoga.
  • Was facing a deceptively strong field at Delaware last time and is competitive off that effort.
  • Is versatile enough to be up close or rally from off the pace.

6-1 on ML


Race 9: Rocketry (#8)

  • Relishes the added distance that he gets to work with in this spot.
  • Ran deceptively well when closing into a slow pace against the bias in the Brooklyn.
  • Joel Rosario’s incomparable patience should be a great asset in this marathon race.

9-5 on ML


Race 10: Waynes Footsteps (#3)

  • Should play out as the controlling speed from this inside post position going a distance where front-runners are dangerous.
  • Ran very well in his final turf start of 2018, chasing off the rail on a day when you wanted to be inside.
  • Appears to be working well for his return.

7-2 on ML
