Race 1: Financialstability (#7)

  • Was somewhat green in his debut, losing some momentum while bumping horses approaching the quarter pole.
  • Should have more speed with that debut experience under his belt.
  • This 4-year-old gelding is a big son of Midnight Lute who might need to race into fitness.

2-1 on ML

Race 7: Leaveuwithasmile (#3)

  • Showed plenty of speed in her debut on the turf, blasting out of the gate before tiring in the lane.
  • This barn is not afraid to switch surfaces second time out, so she may have been dirt-meant all along.
  • Is bred to handle dirt since her dam is a half-sister to capable dirt runners Newport Breeze and Doups Point.

4-1 on ML

Race 8: Hit A Provisional (#11)

  • That 102 TimeformUS Speed Figure that she earned in her turf start two back is good enough to win races at this level.
  • Her tactical speed should be an asset in this one-mile race on the inner course.
  • Jorge Abreu gets a 94 TimeformUS Trainer Rating third off a layoff.

6-1 on ML
