Tuesday’s 9th race from Will Rogers Downs is the $55,000 Cherokee Nation Classic Cup Stakes for Oklahoma-bred 3-year-olds and up traveling a mile and a sixteenth on the main track (Post Time 6:15 p.m. ET).
#6 QUALITY ROCKET (4-1) exits an improved effort in a local sprint, and he might move forward again in his third start after a layoff. He owns two wins at this distance and is probably the one to catch.
#11 United Patriot (5-2) exits a disappointing 4th place finish in the local mud at this distance. The tactical type won three dirt routes last year and fits with these on his best day.
#2 Dak Da Man (10-1) added blinkers and ran well in his last two local starts in the state bred allowance ranks at one mile. He should be heard from late.
#4 Gospel Abe (12-1) has a decent enough finishing kick, and he can spice up the exotics if he runs one of his better races.
