She is not afraid to ride the rail. No. 6 D’ya Knowwhatimean looked great winning at first asking, she will get a perfect sitting trip by Bejarano. 1-6

No. 3 Rock Off gets off the grass and back to a sprint on the cushion surface, a surface where he owns a win and a second from two starts, that last work has him on edge. No. 10 Awesome Indy gets a big jock switch and owns a win on this course. 3-10
No. 9 J and S Express will get a good sitting trip behind all the speed. No. 10 Tangerine Tickle comes off a big win on this course and will be making a late run at the faltering speed. 9-10
The up and coming bug boy Drayden Vandyke gets on comebacker No. 11 Indygo Andy, a second time starter for John Sadler and that last work on the 15th says he is on go. We will take our shot and single in the late pick four. 11
