Race 3: Bad Boy (#3)

  • Did well to win decisively last time after racing 3-wide around both turns.
  • Was keeping strong company against maiden special weight runners before dropping in class last time.
  • Possesses the tactical speed to sit relatively close to what should be a slow pace.

5-2 on ML


Race 6: Erin More (#8)

  • Is a half-sister to capable turf sprinter McErin, who recorded a 116 TimeformUS Speed Figure over this course and distance last year.
  • Todd Pletcher gets a 98 TimeformUS Trainer Rating with first time starters in sprints.
  • Appears to be working very forwardly for her debut.

5-1 on ML


Race 8: Lucky Move (#6)

  • Proved that she can get the distance when she won over this course and distance two weeks ago.
  • Overcame a moderate pace last time, so a likely slow pace here is not of great concern.
  • Appears to be rounding into career form for a low-profile barn.

4-1 on ML
