No introductions for today's Albany Stakes. Empire Dreams (3-1) appears the most likely to get all 9 furlongs faster than the rest--except for Captain Serious (9-5), who is faster and more accomplished but suspect at the trip.

Taking Empire Dreams to win at 5-2 or greater, boxing the exacta, and adding Effinex (20-1) to the exotics mix off the barn change to Jimmy Jerkens.
