Race 12: The first heat of the Risen Star Stakes. A major prep for the Kentucky Derby. Top choice is No. 9 Mr. Monomoy. We think he’ll exact revenge today from the last race. His half sister earned 3 million dollars including a victory in the Kentucky Oaks. No. 2 Silver State had a tough start in the LeComte and still finished second. Let’s give No. 5 Moon Over Miami a shot here. His dam side pedigree is really strong and Hall of Fame trainer Mott doesn’t saddle them if they’re not ready.
