This second timer closed from off the pace to win on debut in October at Remington Park. An unknown quantity, he picks an ambitious spot for his return and would be a surprise off the shelf.

Owner: Michael Pressley and Jackson Steed
Breeder: Mike Pressley (KY)
Trainer: Larry Jones
Jockey: Terry Thompson

Sire: Super Saver
Dam: Totally Tucker
Color: Bay

This interesting sort was a superb allowance winner at Churchill Downs prior to a fourth-place showing in the Sugar Bowl Stakes most recently at Fair Grounds. The late-running colt makes his two-turn debut and will be showing late interest in his second stakes attempt.

Owner: Dundalk 5 LLC, N P H Stable and Hereck Wes
Breeder: Craig Upham (KY)
Trainer: Paul Holthus
Jockey: Stewart Elliott

Sire: Trappe Shot
Dam: Academy Road
Color: Dark Bay

The gelding tops the field with seven races to date and exits his best result when annexing the Big Drama Stakes at Delta Downs. The Kentucky-bred finished last in his previous black-type race but shows a few swift drills at Oaklawn Park of late. He will be stalking the pace early on.

Owner: Ed and Susie Orr
Breeder: Carlos S. E. Moore and Gillian Gordon-Moore (VA)
Trainer: Steve Asmussen
Jockey: Ramon Vazquez

Sire: Munnings
Dam: Senate Caucus
Color: Bay

The $700,000 juvenile purchase was a gamer winner on debut at Keeneland prior to running second in a subsequent allowance dash in the slop at Churchill Downs. The Virginia-bred colt makes his initial route try and is coming up to the race well with a pair of bullet works on the surface. He could be a sleeper at a nice price.

Owner: Doubledown Stables Inc.
Breeder: Lazy Lane Farm (VA)
Trainer: James DiVito
Jockey: Joe Bravo

Sire: Sky Mesa
Dam: Patriot Miss
Color: Dark Bay

The Virginia-bred contender comes off a lifetime-best performance with an allowance tally in the slop at Churchill Downs. The colt has trained forwardly in the interim for a smart layoff barn. He will be doing his best work from off the pace in this endeavor.

Owner: Winchell Thoroughbreds LLC and Willis Horton
Breeder: Hidden Brook Farm LLC and Blue Devil Racing (NY)
Trainer: Steve Asmussen
Jockey: Ricardo Santana Jr.

Sire: Central Banker
Dam: Sister in Arms
Color: Bay

The stakes winner nearly went last-to-first when a head second in the recent Springboard Mile Stakes. The $260,000 two-year-old purchase has been consistently good and has shown his versatility in running from off the pace in two straight races. This top contender is a must use here.


GRAY ATTEMPT

Top BRIS Speed rating (96) in Sugar Bowl Stakes win

Owner: Dwight Pruitt
Breeder: Wynnstay LLC, Donna Moore and Jim Richardson (KY)
Trainer: William Fires
Jockey: Shaun Bridgmohan

Sire: Graydar
Dam: Attempt to Name
Color: Gray/Roan

The surging son of Graydar was a fine winner of the Sugar Bowl Stakes last out and was flattered as the two he beat came back to place in the Lecomte Stakes (G3) on Saturday. The Kentucky-bred has improved his BRIS Speed figures with every career start. He could be the one to catch in his two-turn bow.

Owner: Muddy Waters Stables
Breeder: Haymarket Farm LLC (KY)
Trainer: Thomas Van Berg
Jockey: Jon Court

Sire: To Honor and Serve
Dam: Senorita Margarita
Color: Bay

This speedy sort lacks consistency while drawing widest in the field. The bay colt looked sharp in a Breeders’ Cup weekend maiden score, though his subsequent allowance test left something to be desired. The sophomore will be forwardly placed once again.
