Race #8 – The G2 Eddie Read – 1 1/8 on the turf – 8:30 pm
BetPTC.com Selections / #2 -United / #3 – Say the Word / #4 – Count Again
#2 United is the winner of last year’s Eddie Read and cutting back in distance for Richard Mandella and Flavien Prat. This son of Giant’s Causeway is 4 for 4 ITM at DM and is perfect going 9f. A stalker who will sit in mid pack under the patient hand of Prat should get a solid trip. Add in a sharp work and Prat’s 27% win clip on the green and we have a dangerous runner ready to fire off a 56 day break. #3 Say the Word hails from the Phil D’Amato barn with Mike Smith in the irons. He exits the G1 Shoemaker Mile rolling from the back of the pack coming off a 54 day layoff. Smith still has the hands of a conjurer when it comes time to push the button at the top of the lane. #4 Count Again is another D’Amato trainee who is one for one over the course and has the services of Joe Bravo. He is regally bred to relish the greensward and exits the G1 Turf Classic at CD where he was running from the back of the pack.
Race#10 – The G2 San Clemente – 1 mile on the turf – 9:30 pm
BetPTC.com Selections / #2 – Going Global / #9 – Madone / #12 – Closing Remarks
#2 Going Global goes postward for Phil D’Amato and Flavien Prat in the driver’s seat. She’ll come calling late in the lane and is shooting for her sixth straight win. A versatile filly who can give a well timed effort at any distance. Part is the turf master and wins 38% teaming with the barn and sports a 27% win clip on the weeds overall. #9 Madone comes in for Simon Callaghan and exits a suspect race where she didn’t give her best effort last out. She faded down the stretch and we’re going to toss that race and look forward to her getting back to a mile where she has 4 wins from 5 starts. Juan Hernandez has the call and wins 20% with late runners. #12 Closing Remarks comes in off an eventful race where she clipped heels as the odds on favorite facing Madone. Umberto Rispoli for Carla Gaines and they look to fire right off the bench after a two month layoff.

Race#6 – The G2 Nassau -1 mike on the turf – 3:43 pm
BetPTC.com Selections / #3 – Tappitty Tappitty / #5 – Abscond / #10 – Jolie Olimpica
#3 Tappitty Tappitty is a late runner from the Mark Casse barn making her 2nd start of 2021. She is 6 for 6 ITM over the Woodbine turf and Patrick Husbands in the saddle. She is bred to love the turf and appears this is her home track where she is eligible to improve making the 2nd start off a break from the races. #5 Abscond is a stalker dropping in class for Eddie Kenneally with a sharp work to prepare. She is 1 for 1 at Woodbine and this stalker will try and negotiate the perfect trip after shipping in from Belmont in the G1 Just A Game. #10 Jolie Olimpica hails from the Josie Carroll barn where they are winning 27%. Luis Contreras has the call for this speed style runner who will shoot to the front going the mile distance. She faced the boys last out and gets Lasix back today. No excuses moving forward and should be respected before heading to the windows.
