Race 2: Smooth With a Kick (#5)

  • Handled this course and distance very well in her maiden win last time, earning a strong 104 TimeformUS Speed Figure.
  • Has the tactical speed to make the lead in a race that features a No Speed situation.
  • Worked with Dunbar Road in her final drill for this race and held her own against that superior rival.

7-5 on ML


Race 4: Red Knight (#5)

  • Got poor trips in each of his last two starts, racing wide las time and making a premature move the time before.
  • Obviously figures to relish this 1 5/8 miles distance, having won going as far as 2 miles.
  • Has the tactical speed to get the jump on deep closers like Highland Sky and Pillar Mountain.

8-5 on ML


Race 8: Noblame (#9)

  • Deserves another chance on grass as a daughter of good turf sire Blame.
  • Should love this 5 1/2 furlong distance given her preference for shorter trips at Charles Town.
  • Has reportedly been working well for this race, on both turf and dirt.

10-1 on ML
