Nordic Truce Headlines Hill Prince

The Hill Prince, a one-mile turf test for sophomores, is led by Nordic Truce, who has three victories from as many starts. After breaking his maiden impressively at Calder, the Ammerland Stud homebred closed into fast paces to win the Dania Beach at Gulfstream and Grade 3 Transylvania at Keeneland.

 

Trainer Christophe Clement believes Nordic Truce, the 3-5 morning-line choice, can handle any pace scenario.

 

“It doesn’t matter,” said Clement. “He can do whatever he wants. He is a good horse and has a great jockey, Alan Garcia.”

 

In the Hill Prince, Nordic Truce will face recent allowance winners Gold Medallion and Lethal Combination, Krypton, Noah’s Dream, and the maiden Avenging Spirit. Remand and Six Clicks will compete if the race is transferred onto the main track.
