Seeing the Forest Through the Favorite


There was some evidence on opening day at Kentucky Downs that Christophe Clement is about to breakout from his Spa struggles and if he is not, I'm sure Epping Forest (5-1) will be happy to return to Long Island turf where he's won three of four starts.

Additionally, making a mini-stretch out off his sharp last-run surge in her lone Spa start will suit as well; her next defeat at this trip would be her first in three starts. The switch to Joel Rosario matches up well with her running style.

Taking Epping Forest to win at 3-1 or greater and an exacta box with Rubilinda (5-2).

Hopeful Pletcher Planting His Flag


Per usual, the G1 Hopeful bring down the curtain at the Spa and a typical head-scratcher it is. We'll opt for the longer Pletcher in this spot.

National Flag (9-2) disappointed when bet off the board on debut but improved big time in second start, her first over today's track. This gives him an experience edge over his faster stable mate who also has drawn the rail.

Nicely drawn in mid-pack with meet's leading Ortiz brother, Speightstown gives him license to handle any type of footing he may encounter.

Taking National Flag to win at 3-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas wit impressive maiden breaking mate Mojovation (2-1) and experienced, tough-tripping Free Drop Billy (4-1).

You Can Always Go Downtown


Very competitive sprint for 3YO fillies is the G2 Prioress, and it's not short on pace. The filly we fancy has that but also is versatile enough to adapt. Well drawn outside, she is likely to gain winning position just off the leaders.

Downtown Mama (8-1) is 3-for-3 lifetime, her figures indicate incremental improvement, and has shown she can kick and finish successfully. Hope Jose Ortiz agrees.

As for Linda Rice, she's done almost everything right at this meet and is on track to add to her gaudy meet stats here.

Taking Downtown Mama to win at 4-1 or greater, and key-boxing exactas with Vertical Oak (3-1) and Nonna Mela (5-2).
