Chad Brown will saddle the fast horse on the Equiform scale, Carson Hall (2-1), and while the barn is going great right now, taking a short price on this runner doesn’t feel right.
Barocci (5-2) has the most upside while making his second start in this country following a wide-throughout try and missed by only 3/4s of a length.
The 4-year-old kept good company in Europe, should benefit from his last and Julien Leparoux takes the re-ride. Christophe Clement also having an excellent 2012 and the recent rains should find the course more to this colt’s liking and style.
Taking Barocci to win at 2-1 or great, and exacta key boxes with Carson Hall and adding Hangover Kid (4-1) from the barn of turf ace Jason Servis and very well intended returnee Rogue Victory (5-1) to the exotics mix. On dirt: Forward March (12-1)
