Saturday 03/01 02:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #3 (PEACENIK) (5-1) - Hard-hitting veteran races first off a Bill Spawr re-claim and it's the fourth time this gelding has been in his barn. Seven-year-old has speed/stalking ability, has won on wet tracks in the past, and has a fine record on this dirt 5-2-1-0.
2nd pick: #1 (Free Time) (4-1) - Speedy sort drops in class and goes turf-to-dirt for this attempt. Has the rail, is racing back into shape, and is two for two here on wet tracks.
3rd pick: #7 (First Strike) (3-1) - Former stakes winner drops to a new low in his first start since Jan. 1. In a winning barn (Bob Diodoro), draws a nice outside post, and veteran is at his favorote distance 7-3-2-2.
4th pick: #4 (Road Ready) (5-1) - He's a bit light on experience as compared to most, but was highly thought of at one time and is dropping to a new low. His early speed must be respected.
