An allowance optional claiming race on dirt to be run at one and one sixteenth’s mile. The top choice is No. 9 Grand Omero. There’s no question that his last two races were sub-par. But this horse was a beast in Venezuela, winning five of his first six starts. He definitely would like more distance but today there’s a good situation for him. The race is loaded with early speed, especially with the likely favorite adding blinkers. No. 5 Admire finished second last race against our top choice. No. 1 Indian Counselor intrigues us. He comes right back after fifteen days and changes surfaces from turf to dirt, an angle we always love.
