Manly 3-1 Favorite in Quick Call

Thursday’s featured race is the $100,000 Quick Call, a 5 ½-furlong turf sprint for 3-year-olds.

 

The 3-1 morning-line favorite is Manly, who has won two straight since being claimed for $50,000 by trainer Michael Maker for owners Ken and Sarah Ramsey. His new connections switched the son of Seeking the Gold to turf and shortened him up in distance in his first start off the claim, and the colt responded by breaking his maiden by 1 ¼ lengths in a June 16 maiden special weight at Churchill Downs. He enters the Quick Call off a three-quarter-length triumph in an entry-level allowance on June 30 at Churchill.

 

Javier Castellano will ride Manly from post position 2.

 

Like Manly, 7-2 second choice Full also enters the Quick Call off a pair of turf sprints at Churchill Downs. After clearing the first allowance condition by one length on June 9, the Claiborne Farm and Adele Dilschneider homebred was second by a half-length in a June 29 optional claimer.

 

Trained by Al Stall, Jr., Full will leave from post 9 with Joel Rosario aboard.

 

Gentlemans Code has won four straight, beginning with a $40,000 conditioned claiming race on Keeneland’s artificial main track on April 6. He has been protected by trainer Wesley Ward, who owns the gelding in partnership with Ice Win Stable, since that win, taking a starter allowance over Arlington Park’s synthetic surface on May 6 and a first-level allowance on Arlington’s turf course on June 6.

 

Elvis Trujillo has the assignment aboard Gentlemans Code, 4-1, from post 7.

 

From the rail out, the field also includes Richmond County, Single Malt Mac, Love Those Boots, Artest, Partly Mocha, Capetown Devil, and Drago’s Best.
