An interesting classified allowances on the turf going a mile and a sixteenth and a competitive route it is. Eight are entered including an Main Track Only runner.
Mike Trombetta and Dale Capuano have made multiple entries but it’s the Haracio DePaz returnee, Waiting For A Star (3-1), fresh from a nine-week layoff that appeals most.
Since trying the turf for the first time last summer, the four year old Ghostzapper filly has continued making incremental improvement with only one setback in six consecutive efforts, when victimized by a wide trip at Delaware two starts back.
But all her Laurel starts have been forward and her most recent Thoro-Graph figure is among the best in the field, her spacing is profitable for this barn and also sports a positive ROI when DePaz gives Alex Cintron a leg up.
Her tactical speed and inside draw puts her in the race right from the jump and the price will be honest. Taking Waiting For A Star to win at 5-2 or greater and key-boxing exactas with Beacon of Truth (6-1) going synth to turf for live connections, and price Jumpstartmyheart (10-1) from a recent key race.
