Everybody Take a Free Ride

Another highly competitive Big A feature, today's 8th race, a preliminary allowances/optional claimer, for 3YO and up going a flat mile.

Those in with the best chances are Nevada Kid (9-2), well posted and with good company lines; sharp fast-working Go Canes Go (5-1); distance specialist Springcourt (12-1) getting Rosario, and Sliver And Onions (2-1), wide in return and now entered back for barn that's a profitable 29% effective in LAY-2 scenarios.

Instead, we will opt for Freeride (3-1), whose high cruising speed and long pedigree is well suited to the stretch-out from 6-1/2 furlongs to the one-turn mile. Consider, too, a favorable trip given the dynamics in place and the fact Tony Dutrow is also 29% efficient in second start off layups and 26% with stretch-outs. Irad gets a return call.

Taking Freeride to win at early-line odds and key-boxing first and second in the multiples.
