On the 15th a field of eight equally matched two year old colts will travel eight furlongs on the Woodbine.
#1- Bear's Furr- The likely pacesetter gets a favorable post. He has connections who are capable to win the race. Last out in the Colin he almost fell out of the money. But he got bumped, as of not watching the Colin I am not sure if that is why, so he might be able to reach 8 furlongs, or maybe not.
#2- Best Play- This mighty youngster never gave up in his debut. Despite falling 15 lengths behind, he rallied and came in second. Now, he has the service of great jockey, Javier Castellano and added distance to help his favor. He didn't catch Indiano Jones, but I think he has a nice shot at him this time for sure.
#3- I'm Boundtoscore- As a two year old he is a very safe pick. Never out of money in four lifetime starts. He is improving steadily and should like the added distance, although you never know. He ran a very good second last out in a five furlong stakes race.
#4- Archer Hill- Son of Big Brown and seems to be a very good looking colt who will have no trouble at all with the distance.
#5- Are You Kidding Me- Last out he won his first on turf. But the pace was slow at seven and he barely hung on. I don't see him being able to hang on at this distance, but maybe he can hit the board.
#6- Two B's and E's- A very intriguing colt who has plenty upside. Last out at Belmot he romped a field of maidens off their feet at seven furlong. He is crying for more distance so he can run away more, now he gets another furlong. Also, veteran jockey Garrett Gomez and good trainer Wesley Ward are all star connections in this field. (I think he is the "Best Play" But I wanted my Play of the Day title to be catchy :)
#7-Mercenary- Outmatched. But he's two so who knows.
#8- Indiano Jones- Good colt with good connections. Last out he ran well. I like him, but I don't think that he can hold off other late movers.
