Tightend Touchdown 7-5 for Wednesday's Troy

Dead-heat runner-up in the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint last fall, Tightend Touchdown is the 7-5 program favorite for Wednesday's $100,000 Troy, a 5 ½-furlong sprint for 3-year-olds and up on the inner turf course.


 

Trained by Jason Servis for Mr. Amore Stable, the 5-year-old gelded son of Pure Precision has made three starts in 2014, most recently finishing a nose behind multiple stakes winning-sprinter Ben's Cat in the Grade 3 Parx Dash Handicap on July 12.


 

Tightend Touchdown has won 10 of 25 career races, including the past two editions of the Pennsylvania Governors' Cup Handicap at Penn National, and $694,045 in purses. He has run second in four graded stakes, as well as the 5 ½-furlong Fiddlers Patriot at Saratoga last summer.


 

Irad Ortiz, Jr. will ride from post 2 as co-highweight of 123 pounds in the Troy, which drew a field of eight including Grade 1 Carter Handicap winner Dads Caps, entered main track only.


 

Second choice on the morning line at 5-2, Spring to the Sky has won two straight starts in front-running fashion for trainer Bruce Brown and owner Anthony McCarthy, including the Lucky Coin at Saratoga on July 20. Both victories have come under meet-leading jockey Javier Castellano, who returns to ride from post 6.


 

A winner of three consecutive races and four of six this year, Golden Rifle (5-1) steps into stakes company for the first time in the Troy. In his most recent effort, the Ghostzapper colt won a second-level allowance at Belmont Park by 2 ¾ lengths on June 19. Joel Rosario replaces Castellano at 118 pounds from post 3.


 

Rounding out the Troy field are Bold Thunder (6-1), Choctaw Chuck (10-1), Sandy'z Slew (15-1) and Unseen (20-1).
