No. 7 Elusive Flame and No. 8 Play Money are both bred to love this downhill turf course. 5**-1-4-7-8

Race 2

No. 3 Monydontspenitself drops looking to cash off a good last work. No. 6 Burn Me Twice exits our HTW list and should fire a good shot in this spot. No. 9 Run Mucho Run exits the same last race Mony. 6*-3-9

No. 1 Lomu is the key runner in here off his good try first out going down the hill, he ran like he will love this mile turf trip. No. 2 T Bones Trick is a first-timer for David Hofmans who can strike with his first-timers going long. No. 3 Hackberry exits a key race and may like the longer trip today.
