From Sprint to Route

We'll start in Hallandale with the G3 Swale in which 3YOs will find out two things: Can they stretch out and do they class up? We won't take a favorite to prove that point.

Tricks to Doo (3-1) was very good at Tampa last out and returned to work strongly out of that race. We'll bet on his experience over a brilliantly fast debut winner Strike Power (7-5) and another experienced rival who handled his dirt debut in first rate style in his first try in Hallandale, Piven (4-1).

Taking Tricks to Doo at 5-2 or greater to win the Swale and key-boxing exactas with his rivals here.

Meanwhile, Bal Harbour (6-1) is leaving SoFla after a game, troubled placing in the Mucho Macho Man and is headed to the Withers because Todd want's to find out about his ability to handle added distance. He's earned a chance to meet better in a graded stakes.

Taking Bal Harbour to win the Withers at 9-2 or greater and key-boxing multiples with favorites Avery Island (8-5) and Firenze Fire (9-5).
