Race 8

An allowance race on turf to be run at one and one eighth miles. Top choice is No. 7 Corelli. This horse did not enjoy the soft ground at Saratoga in the Grade 1 Sword Dancer. Today’s field and the conditions should be to his liking. If he runs the race that he did two back at Monmouth, then he certainly is a contender. Trainer Jonathan Thomas has been great over the last two months and jockey Florent Geroux is a nice addition here. No. 6 Bizzee Channel should benefit from a lack of speed in this race. Watch out for this horse as he may get “brave.” No. 2 Dontblametherocket will be the favorite but his closing style will require a hot pace up front.
