Taking Brown’s Horse

There's a first time for everything: We're making a conditional pick. Trainer Bruce Brown has an uncoupled entry in today's featured 8th race turf sprint, the Around The Cape overnight stakes.

Well, this uncoupled entry is also entered in the Jim McKay Turf Sprint at Pimlico on the Black-Eyed Susan undercard with the same riders; Castellano and Lezcano. We expect Spring to the Sky (5-1) to go well in his 4YO debut for Brown, who has a good record with returnees. Night Officer (6-1) should benefit from his recent placing to Ben's Cat, a Maryland legend as the winner of 10 of 14 turf sprints.

I certainly hope that Brown splits the two up, and we'll take whichever horse he runs here to win, no price restrictions, and boxing that horse in the exacta with the very fast early line favorite that's working well at his Fair Hill base, Michael Trombetta's Next Question (2-1).
