Race 4: Macagone (#1)

  • The Pace Projector is predicting that he will be on the lead in a situation favoring the front-runner.
  • Ran better than it appears in a few recent starts when encountering unfavorable rides and pace scenarios.
  • One mile around two turns is his best distance.

5-2 on ML

Race 8: Carlino (#6)

  • The Pace Projector is predicting that he will get a fast pace to close into.
  • Was hindered by the moderate-to-slow pace of the Suburban last time.
  • May appreciate the slight cutback in distance to 1 1/8 miles.

8-1 on ML

Race 9: Happen (#2)

  • Was running on well at the end of the Group 1 Coronation Stakes last time, where she finished ahead of Belmont Oaks runner-up Just Wonderful.
  • Is bred to relish added ground as a daughter of Alexandrova, a 3-time Group 1 winner at 1 1/2 miles.
  • Is going to be dismissed at a square price due to the popularity of heavy favorite Concrete Rose.
