  • #5 SUMMONYOURCOURAGE (4-1) is the top pick. He has races good enough to beat this group. This one has to be respected going out for the combination of Pletcher and Ortiz.
  • #3 KENTUCKY JOKER (3-1) shouldn’t have trouble with the 7 furlong distance.
  • #9 PERFORM (4-1) has been really solid in recent starts and should be ready to run a big one here. This one makes sense on speed figures.

Cyberknife | Blood Horse
  • #10 CYBERKNIFE (5-2) gets the top selection. He shouldn’t have trouble with the 1 1/8 mile distance. This one has the top overall power rating in the group and has to be considered the top horse in training for the Classic division.
  • #5 DEFUNDED (6-1) is maybe the one most likely to give the favorite some issues. This one has just been a cut below.
  • #7 SKIPPYLONGSTOCKING (5-1) has been a horse that has always had a bit of buzz, but it just never seems to translate on wins on the big stage. This one is probably best underneath.
  • #6 ART COLLECTOR (10-1) is a player depending on which version shows up. At his best he’s really good, but when off form he can be pretty disappointing. Just ask those who backed him last time out.

Selections: 10- 5 – 7 – 6
