Race 9: A mile turf race for one-time winners. Top selection is No. 3 Wish Upon. N.Y. bred is a grinder who always seems to be in the mix. Like her sheet pattern and the fact that she’s won on the Big A lawn. No. 2 Altea has nice credentials but it doesn’t seem like she wants to win. But you can’t leave her connections out. Likely favorite No. 7 Mean Mary impressively broke her maiden at Keeneland. She looks to be the real deal. Using No. 11 Bareeqa in the trifecta. Intriguing, very intriguing.
