Race #12 – The G2 Davona Dale – 1 mile – 5:01 pm EDT
BetPTC.com Selections / #1 – Jaywalk / #3 – Another Time / #5 – Champagne Anyone
#1 Jaywalk has been away from the races for four months since the BC Juvenile Fillies. She is looking to strike at first asking and that would make her five in a row right off the bench. Joel Rosario travels in from California and he has been aboard her last two impressive outings. She cuts back in distance off her victory in the BC and she has plenty of solid works at Palm Meadows. She draws the rail and that spot has been winning at 21%. #3 Another Time ships in from Woodbine two back and picks up the services of Irad Ortiz. She ran a very game third effort at TBD even though it was a troubled trip. I think it takes a couple races to get acclimated back to the dirt and she happens to have a red hot reinsman calling the shots. Look for a strong closing punch. #5 Champagne Anyone is a daughter of Street Sense looking to ship in from CD out of the G3 Forward Gal. She has a good late kick and hails from the Ian Wilkes barn. Chris Landeros makes the trip and she will come rolling late in the lane.
Race #13 – The G2 Fountain of Youth – 1 1/16 – 5:32 pm EDT
BetPTC.com Selections / #6 – Signalman / #8 – Global Campaign / #7 – Hidden Scroll
#6 Signalman comes from the barn of Ken McPeek with B.J. Hernandez in the driver’s seat. He is 5 for 5 ITM lifetime and won the G2 Kentucky Jockey Club at CD. He looked promising at two and his three year old season looks promising. He has a strong late punch and his works at GP have shown promise. #8 Global Campaign is a perfect two for two and hails from the Stanley Hough barn. He is a perfect stalking sort and his races have really shown a sign of good things to come. His works at Palm Meadows have been sparkling and I’m looking for a big effort. #7 Hidden Scroll is a lightly raced colt who is an impressive one for one. This son of Hard Spun drew off to win by 14 and Joel Rosario is aboard for a good reason. Trainer Bill Mott has been on a roll winning at a super 20% so far this meet as his runner looks to duplicate his last explosive win.
Race #14 – The G2 Mac Diarmida – 1 3/6 on the turf – 6:06 pm EDT
BetPTC.com Selections / #11 – Channel Maker / #9 – Kulin Rock / #5 – Vettori Kin
#11 Channel Maker hails from the impressive Bill Mott barn. He is making his 2nd start off the layoff and has the services of Joel Rosario. He can be a versatile stalker, and drawing the outside post may allow him time to get into position. #9 Kulin Rock has Jose Ortiz aboard for trainer Mike Maker. This son of Lonhro is 3 for 5 ITM over the GP green and Ortiz picks up the mount after a $50k starter claiming race loss. He should make a good late run and Ortiz moves him right into the game. #5 Vettori Kin ships in from Woodbine facing some very tough company. He is 5 for 11 ITM on the sod and trainer Ken McPeek can bring them ready in a hurry. B.J. Hernandez in the saddle and a big effort would not surprise at all. He is the deep closing sort and look for his silks at the top of the lane.
