Wow, really tough race, I could make a case for all contenders..no doubt a deep, competitive field of eight, this race is to determine who continues to the $1 million Travers Stakes Aug. 25.
So, may the best horse win.. :)
Win-6-Teeth of the Dog, really like trainer Michael Matz- Teeth of the Dog, a son of Bluegrass Cat, has won both his starts with Joel Rosario, who we will see aboard again.
Place-1-Alpha, trained by Kiaran McLaughlin (for Godolphin Racing), is expected to get a lot of support at the windows thanks to his earlier races, including his 'fast-closing' second to Gemologist in the Wood Memorial. Ramon Dominguez will be aboard.
Show-5- Neck 'n Neck, he sure looks awesome, has matured a lot. He's one of the more intriguing horses in the race, coming off a 6 1/2-length score in a Churchill Downs allowance race and a 7 1/4-length romp in the Matt Winn, also at Churchill, earning triple-digit Beyer speed figures in both races, impressive. It wouldn't surprise me if he wins the race.
Alternate-7-Liaison- Bob Baffert-trained Liaison, who has rounded back in form over Cushion Track at Betfair Hollywood Park, finishing a fast-closing third, beaten three-quarters of a length, in the Swaps Stakes following a second, beaten a half-length, in the Affirmed. Martin Garcia comes in from California to ride.
6. 1, 5, Alt. 7
Enjoy the race
I haven't been feeling well the last few days, but I plan on being there all weekend. :)
