Can't argue with the picks. At least we have Pender Harbour in common. I do like Patrioticandproud and what a name for the July 4th weekend. Just not sure if he can win at a stakes level lately but at 8-1 ml odds might be a nice overlay.
I like Florida Won at 12-1 ml odds. Liked his win in the Ontario Derby two starts back at Woodbine. Out of Birdstone, he should be able to handle the distance. Also like the veteran Pender Harbour at 6-1 ml odds. Liked his two starts this year. He seems to be rounding into his old form and always dangerous on third start off a layoff.
Going to wait for ml odds but leaning towards Alert Bay and Ambitious Brew..Soi Phet loves the track but might go off as the fav and only has one start since his JPN trip back in Dec 2014.
Thanks Mary! One of my better weekends. Had the exacta and winner in the Iowa Derby and had the exacta and winner in the Royal Heroine at SA. How did you do?
18-1 winner made my Sunday!

Decisive Edge and Golden Soul
Does anyone know who's riding Kenzadargent in this race?
Hard race to handicap. IMO none seem to really stand out. I've never really understood the past hype on Medal Count but might look towards him for a shot here, especially at long odds. Also, Sky Flight looks solid but not sure if he can fire his best after layoff. Might add him depending on post time odds.
Sticking with initial selections Golden Lad and Page McKenney and adding Carve. Golden Lad has tactical speed and like the way he won his last. His early ml odds of 9/2 works for me. But something tells me he will drop a little. Page McKenney is always hitting the board and has stepped up in competition in his last two and showed he belongs. Liked his last out in Pimilico Special and I think he has a solid shot at ml odds of 6-1. Carve is the defending champ and has a win on the track. There is no Race Day in here and he should go off as a lukewarm favorite but I think it won't be lower than 5/2 or higher. Not too bad on ROI at those odds.
