What do you know, a dirt feature. True, it’s a small field but very competitive with no standout favorite and a chance to get fair value on a horse owning enough pace to race in the first flight and enough kick to get home. That would be Try To Fly who’s been going well since getting off the plastic stuff and on legit dirt for Tony Dutrow.

The spacing is right, six weeks, and so are the conditions. Position conscious Cornelio Velasquez is sure to get him in the game from the start and win this turning from home as the late runners begin to gain momentum. As a four-year-old, his figures are showing continued development and his debut on this surface was an extremely game effort while racing between horses in the late stages.

Taking Try to Fly to win at 8-5 or greater and an exacta box with surface lover Les Grand Trois.
