We had a tough beat on Fire Wood yesterday. He came flying home at 10-1 in a six-horse field and came up a half-length short to the 4-5 favorite, but that’s been the history of his career. He’s run second 13 times now in 32 starts.
Here are a few horses we like today:
3rd — All Saint should get the job done here under jockey Luis Contreras.
7th — Cayambe likes the 7-furlong distance, having won twice in five starts, and gets the services of Tyler Baze. Absolute Glory, with Chantal Sutherland in the saddle, is the upset special in this optional claimer.
9th — Fil’s Regent is my best bet of the day at 12-1 on the morning line. He gets a five-pound weight break with Michael Martinez riding and I think he’ll be moving fastest of all in the stretch.
Good luck today!
