Fast and yielding for the Sunday card — can’t wait for the Derby next week, but I will try and do my best today.

In race 8, Miz Owell (#3) has good turf figures and can run these down late with a faster pace on tap.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 2.

In race 1, Shantish (#7) is a dangerous shipper who can beat these on best if handles the track — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #3. Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7 (Best Bet) and 3

Race 2: 4 with 2 and 8

In race 8, The Grade 2 Distaff, My Pal Chrisy (#7) is the in-form closer in a race packed with speed — should sit the perfect trip from the outside.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 4.
