Race #10 – The G3 River City – 1 1/8 on the turf – 5:36 pm EDT
BetPTC.com Selections / #3 – Mr. Misunderstood / #5 – Big Changes / #2 – Postulation
#3 Mr. Misunderstood has the services of Florent Geroux for trainer Brad Cox and they are winning at a 16% clip as a team. He is three for three at CD and exits the G1 Shadwell Turf at Keeneland. Drops down in class and gets added distance. If the sod comes up with plenty of moisture he should enjoy the soft going. #5 Big Changes is a son of Midshipman for the Brad Cox barn. They are looking for their 6th win in a row and three for three ITM over the CD strip. #2 Postulation is a son of Harlan’s Holiday for the Michael Matz barn. B.J. Hernadez in the irons as they are making a 3rd off the layoff move. He’ll be right with the leaders from the break and may be tough if left alone.
Race #3 – The Glacial Princess – 6f – 1:10 pm EDT
BetPTC.com Selections / #2 – Hey Adrian / #4 – Radiant Bird / #6 – Show Me Some Sass
#2 Hey Adrian is a daughter of Twinspired and she’s been away from the races for 56 days. Juan Velez has the call and she has blistering speed. She’s looking for her 4th victory in a row and ships in from Cleveland. Catch her if you can. #4 Radiant Bird hails from the Robert Gorham barn winning 24%.

Houghton has the call and this daughter of Birdrun will be picking up the leaders at the top of the lane. #6 Show Me Some Sass comes from the Danny Bird barn and is a solid closer. She’s been away from the races for 56 days and should come calling late in the action.

BetPTC.com Selections / #6 – Mobil Solution / #5 – Eightthehardway / #2 – Leona’s Reward
#6 Mobil Solution comes from the Jeffrey Radosevich barm with Luis Rivera in the irons.

He is 13 for 19 ITM at Mahoning and T.D. Houghton will have him in high gear as they turn for the money. #2 Leona’s Reward comes from the high percentage Tim Hamm barn and she is one speedy gal. She’s fought the boys a few times this year and always gives a good account. She is 7 for 9 ITM with Luis Colon aboard.
