A 50k claiming race on grass to be run at a distance of one mile. Top choice is No. 9 Fire Polish. Toss the last race as it was a clunker on dirt. Neil Drysdale is a masterful turf trainer and word is that this gelding’s work on January 10th was great. He also adds blinkers. No. 3 Commanding Chief will be the favorite as he’s stepping down in class. He’s been off for close to a year. No. 1 Direct Line comes back to the lawn after a few average dirt races.
The Pick: Win/Place 9 Exacta Box 1-3-9 Trifecta Box 1-2-3-9
