Race #9 – The G2 Fort Marcy – 1 1/8 on the turf – 4:56 pm Analysis / #3 – Ottoman Fleet / #6 – City Man / #5 – Rockemperor

#3 Ottoman Fleet hails from the Charlie Appleby yard with Richard Mullen aboard. This son of Sea the Stars (IRE) is 9 for 10 ITM on the turf and Appleby is one of the most dangerous conditions on the sod and is 4 for 4 ITM at the distance. #6 City Man is a late running son of Mucho Macho Man for Christophe Clement with Trevor McCarthy in the irons. He was a beaten favorite in the PWC Turf Invitational at GP.  He should sit a perfect stalking trip. #5 Rockemperor goes to post for Chad Brown and Dylan Davis in the saddle. A late runner coming off a 7 month layoff and can upset the apple cart.


Race #10 – The G2 Ruffian – 1 mile – 5:37 pm Analysis / #4 – Idiomatic / #5 – Kathleen O / #3 – Timeless Journey

#4 Idiomatic is a daughter of Curlin for Brad Cox and Trevor McCarthy in the irons. She is a close up runner who is seeking her fourth straight win. She makes the AW to dirt move and sports a sharp work. #5 Kathleen O is a closing type for Shug McGaughey and Kendrick Carmouche in the driver’s seat. 3rd start off the layoff and the barn scores 20% on this move, she’s been a bridesmaid the last three races and looks to overcome the beaten favorite angle last out. #3 Timeless Journey hails from the Ray Handal barn with Jorge Vargas in the saddle. They are winning 38% as a team as the daughter of Verrazano moves up the class ladder.
