I think J J's Lucky Train may be able to rock the Bay Shore on the Wood Memorial under card. He ran well at two turns in the early winter, but his true talent is going one turn. Plus the best 3yo sprinters don't seem to be showing up for this one-Flashpoint, The Factor, Sway Away, even Travelin' Man are all elsewhere mostly looking at the Derby.
