Updated to reflect a number of scratches.
Race 5 | Grade III Allaire DuPont Distaff Stakes | 1 1/8 miles
1. Mo’ Green
3. Terra Promessa
4. She’s a Warrior
Comment: Terra Promessa is certainly logical but not unbeatable at 6/5 morning line odds. Mo’ Green and Carrumba are capable alternatives
Race 7 | Grade III Pimlico Special Handicap | 1 3/16 miles
1. Shaman Ghost
Comment: Shaman Ghost has an impressive resume and is a deserving favorite. Dolphus may not get as much attention as others, but is just as capable of getting the place.
Race 8 | Hilltop Stakes | 1 mile turf
2. Victory to Victory
3. Happy Mesa
4. Dance Queen
Comment: Compelled is right there every time. Victory to Victory can improve in the second off the layoff and would not surprise.
Race 9 | Grade III Adena Springs Miss Preakness | 6 furlongs
1. Vertical Oak
2. Too Much Tip
3. Pretty City Dancer
Comment: Vertical Oak enters from Iowa and looks capable at an enticing price. Too Much Tip is an unknown but enters a barn that does well with shippers and horses off a layoff.
Race 10 | Jim McKay Turf Sprint Stakes | 5 furlongs turf
1. Richard’s Boy
2. Grand Candy
3. Amelia’s Wild Ride
4. Pay Any Price
Comment: Richard’s Boy should like the shorter distance.
Race 11 | Grade II Black-Eyed Susan Stakes | 1 1/8 miles
1. Lights of Medina
3. Shimmering Aspen
4. Summer Luck
Comment: Lights of Medina was bred by the connections of Big Brown (more interesting than significant in handicapping) and is capable of pulling off a slight upset as the hometown horse. Moana is improving for the Kentucky Derby-connections.
Race 13 | Skipat Stakes | 6 furlongs
1. Summer Reading
4. Disco Chick
Comment: Summer Reading is capable in a return to the dirt and can sit just off the pace. Chantelline likely will go to the lead and may be fast enough to do that at a manageable pace
