Race 9

The Red Smith stakes to be run at one and three-eighths miles on the turf. Top choice is No. 5 North Dakota. He was terribly compromised in the stretch during the Sycamore at Keeneland. He’s just as good as the others and will provide better value. No. 10 Red Knight has a great closing kick but will have to be closer up today. No. 4 Sadler’s Joy is the old pro who won this last year. He likes “The Big A.”
