Fair Grounds

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. 

The Pick:  Win/Place 9  Exacta Box 2-5-9  Trifecta Box 2-5-8-9
