Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #2 (TIMELY TRADITION) (6-1) - Veteran mare moves up in class seeking her 4th win in a row. The previous three came following a clam by Ray Handal, and she holds a vast experience edge over most all she lines up against. She gets a slight edge in a contest where you should box whatever wagers you make.
2nd pick: #6 (Primacy) (9-2) - One of two entered by Chad Brown, and the pair of fillies race uncoupled. A $240,000 daughter of 'Union Rags,' she broke her maiden in easy fashion at this distance June 13 at Belmont. A win candidate.
3rd pick: #5 (Secondary Market) (4-1) - The second of the Chad Brown fillies, she's been on the sidelines since an impressive maiden win at this distance Sept. 14 at Belmont. Working fast for here return, this $275,000 daughter of 'Into Mischief' is a major threat if ready.
4th pick: #9 (Pop a Choc) (7-2) - This filly was a visually impressive maiden winner going seven furlongs at Belmont July 9. It was her first race since April 19, her first on the dirt, and it earned this daughter of 'Bernardini' a big figure. The $330K purchase draws well, and John Velazquez stays aboard.
5th pick: #8 (Palio Flag) (5-1) - She rallied from close range to win her debut by a 'neck' at Keeneland traveling seven furlongs July 9. Well-bred, she obviously has talent, and this $350K daughter of 'Curlin' must be left in the mix.
