Premium Pick

Top pick: #11 (Slider) (8-1) - This two-year-old colt is still learning but is competitive and keeps on winning. Slider had an uneven start the last time out but still won the five furlongs Speakeasy Stakes at Santa Anita last month. After settling in the stretch, Slider roared back to win by 1 1/4 lengths. Slider also won a maiden race at 5 1/2 furlongs on dirt by three lengths in September.

2nd pick: #2 (No Nay Mets) (4-1) - Irish-bred No Nay Mets has run three races on American soil and won all three. The two-year-old colt has also showcased early speed. He pulled away late, as well, while winning the Rosie's Stakes in September.

3rd pick: #4 (Big Evs) (3-1) - This muscular English horse breaks fast and has three wins in five starts, all stakes races. The pole position is a plus in a crowded field, though two races ago, Big Evs had a poor showing at the Grade 1 Coolmore Wootton Bassett Nunthorpe finishing 14th despite being 5-to-1.

4th pick: #9 (Amidst Waves) (8-1) - This two-year-old filly is a stalker with late speed that can hang around. Amidst Waves has finished first or second in four straight races, all from 5 to 5 1/2 furlongs.
