Going off as race number 13 on the card the Black Eyed Susan will be the Friday feature. Unfortunately, like its brother race on Saturday, the stars from Kentucky have chosen other paths going forward. Secret Oath will take on the boys in the Preakness. Other short prices like Kathleen O., Echo Zulu, and Nest are not entered here.

  • #10 ADARE MANOR (5-2) has a great shot in the race given the speed & class. This one was supposed to romp in the Santa Anita Oaks, so if you can forgive that effort she is the clear front runner here.
  • #6 LUNA BELLE (9-2) is in with a great chance based on the horse’s record at the distance & early pace numbers.
  • #7 DISTINCTLYPOSSIBLE (6-1) is proven as a good bet to at least hit the board at the mile and 1/8 distance.
  • #11 RADIO DAYS (12-1) is bred to like this distance and is worth a look.

Selections: 10-6-7-11 (Best Bet: #10 ADARE MANOR)

Post: 3:36 PM ET; Purse: $100,000 Hilltop S., 1 Mile on Turf; Entries: 8

  • #4 PIZZA BIANCA (4-5) is the most likely winner on the card. Along with superior speed figures this one is in top form.
  • #3 HAIL TO (12-1) has the next best speed figures on the turf and at this price, this horse may be the key to getting any value on the favorite.
