Top pick: #7 (PRINCE OF PARIS) (3-1) - Speedy colt set a quick & pressured pace before weakening to run third here at this trip for a $40K tag Feb. 21st. It was a career best, and apprentice rider Van Dyke dropped his whip in mid-stretch or 3yo would have finished second.
2nd pick: #6 (Bluegrass Fox Trot) (5-2) - Improving sort has gone 3-0-1-2 since dropping into claimers, and last out finished a close-up second here at this tag. Stalker is a win candidate with a repeat of that effort.
3rd pick: #3 (Stenoa) (12-1) - Longshot was away slowly when debuting here at this tag going 7-furlongs Feb. 13th, and tired after rushing up following the tardy beginning. He's worked well since, and trainer Lenny Powell will stretch him out in distance. Price play.
4th pick: #5 (Warrensgoldenyears) (6-1) - One of two entered from the vast Ben Warren operation, colt rallied while wide to finish fourth of 12, beaten almost seven lengths going 7-furlongs on Feb. 13th. It was a career best, he's worked twice since, and will be attempting a two-turn distance for the first time.
