#8 QURBAAN (6-1) is only 1-for-12 on turf (8 minor awards), and that lone victory was in the Bernard Baruch (G2) is his only try at Saratoga last summer. He removes blinkers and will probably stalk the pace under his new rider Joel Rosario.  

#6 Made You Look (4-1) has not been seen in more than eleven months for Chad Brown. In his first start for this barn, he won off a 10+ month layoff at Belmont last year, and he figures to be heard from late under Irad Ortiz Jr. 


#7 Voodoo Song (3-1) is 5-for-6 at Saratoga, and he is probably ready to roll in his first start in more than nine months. He wired the field in this event at Belmont Park last year, and the front runner might end up dueling with #1 Gidu (12-1).
