With apologies to the fairer sex, we'll look at the Grade 2 coltsa in the Adirondack Special as opposed to the ladies in the G2 Adirondack.

There are all sorts of new speed balls shipping in for this event but we believe the winner will come from the Sanford earlier this meet. Of the three coming out of there, Mr. Z (8-1) is preferred.

Yes, Cinco Charlie was extremely game and Nonno's Boy did suffer through a tough trip, too, but none tougher than Mr. Z who had to bull his way out of trouble, bumping hard with the eventual winner, getting through between rivals, while the winner had a clear run outside.

Taking Mr. Z to win at 4-1 or greater and key-boxing him first and second with his rivals here.
