Race #9 – The G-2 Turf Sprint – 6f on the turf – 5:10 pm ET Analysis / #9 – Front Run the Fed / #12 – Arrest Me Red / #2 – Chewing Gum

#9 Front Run the Fed is in the hands of Jose Lezcano for Caio Caramori. He is 1 for 2 ITM at KyD and is a late runner cutting back in distance. 3rd off the layoff and the barn scores 20% on this move and should give a good account today on the European course. #12 Arrest Me Red hails from the Wesley ward barn with Irad Ortiz in the irons. Beaten chalk last out and they come back to score at a 31% win clip turning the tables. Son of Pioneer of the Nile and a stalker type dropping in class from the G1 Jaipur at Belmont. Should be close to the pace and is a major danger. #2 Chewing Gum goes to post for Bill Mott and Joel Rosario. 1 for 2 ITM at KyD and comes off a 49 day break cutting back in distance. Look for a solid late run turning for home.

Race #10 – The G2 Kentucky Turf Cup – 1 1/2 on the turf – 5:45 pm Analysis / #4 – Arklow / #8 – Gufo / #12 – Highest Honors

#4 Arklow goes to post for Brad Cox and Florent Geroux in the saddle. 2nd start of the year and 4 for 4 ITM at KyD. Exits a troubled trip in the G2 Bowling Green and should relish the distance stalking the pace. #8 Gufo exits a win in the G1 Sword Dancer and has Joel Rosario still in the irons as the regular rider. He is a son of Declaration of War bred to relish the turf. He has a strong late kick and should enjoy the long stretch run. #12 Highest Honors comes from the Chad Brown barn with Tyler Gaffalione in the saddle. 4 starts on the turf with 3 ITM efforts. Brown spots them in the right place and this son of Tapit will come calling late in the final furlong.

#10 Campanelle hails from the Wesley Ward barn with Irad Ortiz in the saddle. She ships back form Ascot finishing 3rd facing the boys in the Gr1 Platinum Jubilee. She can get rolling late in the lane and Ortiz wins 26% with his closing turf runners. The one to beat. #11 In Good Spirits goes to post for Al Stall and John Velasquez in the driver’s seat. She is 1 for 1 at KyD and cuts back in distance from a mile. She won this race last year and looks to stalk and pounce again. #1 Bay Storm 3rd time off the layoff for Jonathon Thomas and Tyler Gaffalione. She looks to go 3 straight and should be right on the pace today from the rail.

#6 Big Invasion hails from the Christophe Clement barn with Joel Rosario. This son of Declaration of War is shooting for his 7th straight win. 3rd off the layoff and ships in from Saratoga winning a $150k stake. He can stalk mid pack and move when called upon. The one to beat. #10 Asymmetric goes to post for Wesley Ward and Irad Ortiz in the saddle. Been off 55 days and making his 3rd start of the year. he is 6 for 8 ITM on turf and in the hands of the perfect stalking rider. Ortiz takes over for Jamie Spencer and has been on fire anywhere he rides. #9 Stitched comes in for Greg Foley with Florent Geroux aboard. He is looking to go 4 straight and makes the climb up the ladder today. He is in capable hands and could upset the apple cart.
