This one is scheduled to go 1 1/16 on the grass but with the hurricane coming in we just don’t know but we do like first time starter No. 4 Pianist turf or main, Bill Mott sends out second time starter No. 6 Formative who will go much better today with that last race under her belt when she was rank and blocked. Mott also sends out No. 10 Refining for the main track only and she is exiting a key race. 4-6-10( mto)

If it comes off the grass No. 10 Authenticity and No. 13 Rose’s Turn look best. 2-6 or 10-13mto

Race 6

No. 2 Self Control is the one to beat as he goes from the routing on the grass to this 7 furlong race on the main and he gets Dominguez to ride for the high end Chad Brown barn. No. 5 Troilus was a good second going 7 furlongs here on Aug 6th. 2-5
