Phantom Rising won his debut at 7 furlongs, usually a sing of inherent class, ran fast, and did it the right way. Bill Mott is en fuego, and he’s given this guy more than sufficient recovery time for his return. He could wind up the best of these good looking colts.
Uno Peso is the most interesting. He earned the fastest figure, and at a flat mile, over a wet Churchill track as a two-year-old. After a game second in his well meant season’s debut, he was run off his feet by faster in the Suncoast, both recent starts over the quirky Tampa surface. Now he’s back at a flat mile making his third start off the layup and reunites with maiden breaking partner, Julien Leparoux.
Run All Day is the house horse: a Stronach owned, Brian Lynch trained sophomore that looked good winning its last under today’s conditions, earning a competitive figure and distributing his energy more efficiently. He could easily repeat.
But we’ll throw deep with Uno Peso to win at 6-1 or greater and key him in exactas and trifectas with his main rivals here.
