No. 7 Switched Up is a first time starter for the hot Sadler barn, she is out of the dam Antoniette who has dropped five winners from five starters including two stakes winners, and this jockey trainer combo has had a big meet when hooking up.

Race 7

No. 8 Sultry Season has won three of her nine starts and finds a good spot to notch her fourth, No. 9 Lady Rosamond gets a huge drop in class but gets Bejarano back in the irons and the three times he rode this filly he had a win and two seconds, both narrow losses. 8-9

Race 8

THE GRADE 2 JOHN C. MABEE

No. 4 Customer Base has back-to-back-to-back blistering works here in preparation for this. 2-3-4
