“It would be great for us to win two Grade I races here on the same day,” Nick added.

Akkadian, a 5-year-old Tiznow gelding who was fourth, beaten only three lengths in the Grade II Arcadia Stakes on Feb. 2, would give Julio his first victory in the prestigious race.

The field for the Kilroe: Silentio, Rafael Bejarano, 9-2; Fed Biz, Mike Smith, 9-2; Suggestive Boy, Joe Talamo, 5-2; Vagabond Shoes, Martin Garcia, 12-1; Akkadian, Garrett Gomez, 8-1; supplemental nominee Forest Mouse, Ry Eikleberry, 15-1; Wilkinson, Martin Pedroza, 9-2; and Mr. Commons, Corey Nakatani, 3-1.
