Race 5: Spinoff (#2)

  • The Pace Projector is predicting a situation favoring horses on or near the lead, and he has tactical speed.
  • Was wide against a rail bias when only losing the Belmont Stakes by 3 lengths.
  • Worked very well in blinkers last week, so he may be ready for a step forward.

Race 8: Victorine (#10)

  • Showed real promise in France, finishing a close fourth in a tough Group 3 Prix de Psyche.
  • Encountered boggy going in both U.S. starts last season and she may prefer firmer ground.
  • Attracts the hot-riding Irad Ortiz for her 4-year-old debut.

5-2 on ML

Race 9: Killybegs Captain (#2)

  • Was badly compromised by a stumbling start and a slow pace last time.
  • Has been steadily improving throughout his 5-year-old season and is in career form now.
  • The Pace Projector is predicting a situation favoring horses on or near the lead and he should be forwardly placed from the inside.
