Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #4 (GANDY DANCING) (7-2) - One of three making their first starts, this $210,000 son of 'Flatter' is from the barn of Chad Brown (35 of 170, 21%, with debuting runners since Jan. 1 of 2019). Colt ships from Florida where he had some quick drills at the Palm Meadows Center, including a bullet half-mile from the gate in :47 flat, the best of 32 at the distance Feb. 18.
2nd pick: #8 (Ernie Banker) (3-1) - 'Ernie' finished a fine 3rd of 13, beaten by 2.5 lengths when debuting here at this level and distance Feb. 17. I believe that group was tougher than this, and that makes this colt a win candidate.
3rd pick: #2 (Not Phar Now) (5-2) - Home-bred by 'American Pharoah' ran 3rd when debuting here at 6.5 furlongs Feb. 29. Back on a quick turnaround for Linda Rice, she's one of the best on this circuit second time out (18 of 67, 27%, since Jan. 1 of 2019). In the win mix.
4th pick: #1 (Midnight Whiskey) (6-1) - Another of three making their debuts, he sold for $92,000 as a 2yo in training last May. He has some fine works for Steve Asmussen (46 of 271, 17%, first out in 2019-20).
