#2 Ginobli makes his first start around 2 turns. Ran a really fast number 2 back followed by a dud over this track. Can’t let the horse with best number beat me in leg 1. #4 Villainous has competitive numbers at a price. #7 Candy Tycoon faces softer and another with competitive numbers. #10 Prodigious Bay jumped forward first route. #11 Rushie with 2 solid routes this year. Contentious race.
Race 11: #1 Charlatan could be singled, but I singled Venetian Harbor and it cost me the Pick 4. Will also use #4 Gouverneur Morris, who jumped forward off the paired 2 YO top. If Charlatan doesn’t break well, who knows.
#2 Trophy Chaser should sit a good trip from an inside draw, paired tops this year which are very competitive. #4 Mr Freeze reacts off big efforts, but can still win off a bounce sitting right off the pace. #6 Warrior’s Charge has speed, several wins over the track, solid connections, and ran a top last out. #9 Tacitus has solid numbers and a must use. #12 By My Standards, toss the Ky Derby in the slop and he’s won his last 4. Solid pattern, a little slower than the other contenders but I think he can move forward which puts him right in this.
#3 Storm The Court paired his top, fits on numbers. #4 King Guillermo ran a big race at TB on the main after a couple on turf. Fastest number can’t toss. #5 Nadal another in the number range behind KG, as well as #11 Well’s Bayou. #10 Farmington Road is a bit slower but I love his pattern and a forward move puts him squarely in this. The track is playing towards speed, he'll need a pace meltdown which is possible.
#5 Carlos Sixes has solid numbers, gets the distance, and I don’t like much else here. Single
