Now that the post positions have been drawn, strategy can be plotted, and trainers can either take advantage of their posts or try to make the best of them.
Todd Pletcher falls into the latter category, as four of his horses, including powerhouses Quality Road and Life At Ten, drew less than ideal posts, meaning a degree of luck will have to come their way.
Quality Road and Life At Ten drew the rail in the Classic (gr. IT) and Ladies Classic, respectively, while Pluck and Allure d’Amour drew posts 13 and 14 in the Juvenile Turf (gr. II) and Juvenile Fillies Turf (gr. II), respectively.
