Kelso Handicap Grade II
Race #5: 5,2
In the Kelso Handicap the heavy favorite will be Honor Code but my top pick this time is Red Vine. Immediately you should wonder, why? Honor Code’s main goal is the Breeders’ Cup Classic over 1 ¼ m, so if he doesn’t win the Kelso it will not be the end of the world. However, a good gallop out would be wonderful. Of course he has the quality to win and he always fires at one turn races, but this time he’s vulnerable, in my opinion. Red Vine has become a consistent horse on the dirt and has shown his best over one-mile races. If he takes this race we will see him in the Breeders’ Cup dirt mile with a huge chance to win.

Flower Bowl Stakes GI
Race #6: 1
Stephanie’s Kitten is a real Grade I runner with plenty of experience in Breeders’ Cup Series. The Flower Bowl field looks weak for her with the exception of  the invader Curvy. Regardless, Stephanie’s Kitten is in a great shape and ready to win this race and head to the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf.

Frizette GI
Race #7: 1
She’s All Ready is unbeaten in two starts and although she’s trying a route distance for first time, she demonstrated in her last race that she had plenty of gas in the tank. So one-mile will not be a problem. She is also facing a tougher field this time, but she is literally flying in the mornings, so I’m betting for a superb performance again.

Champagne Stakes GI
Race #8: 5,2
Ralis became a serious horse when he moved to the east coast and destroyed the field in the Hopeful Stakes GI. Now he’s stretching out to one mile, let’s see if he wants to go farther. Greenpointcrusader has a solid pedigree for the distance and looks in shape for this race. Even though Javier Castellano moved to Ralis saddle, he has a big shot to win if Ralis fades in the stretch.

Hill Prince Stakes GIII
Race #9: 5,10,8
Takeover Target failed as the favorite in the Saranac GIII, however Jose Ortiz insists with this colt. This is a horse with tactical speed, which is a really advantage in this kind of races. World Approval beat the aforementioned Takeover Target in the Saranac coming off the pace. World Approval is a consistent horse who will surely be in the mix. Great Dancer could be the long shot of the day; he has been improving in each race, and we don’t know what is his limits.

Jockey Club Gold Cup GI
Race 10: 6,2
If you watch Tonalist’s gallop out in the Whitney you would single him immediately. He is also working very well and looks ready to defend his crown, since he won this race last year. I’m only trying to beat him with Coach Inge, a horse who demonstrated to be a solid horse who can handle the distance. Constitution will be the pacemaker and likely to fade into the stretch, but if the pace is slow he can steal the race. The pace will be the key of this race.
