#7 LIMNERY (7-2) had all three of his Fair grounds races washed off the turf and he graduated as the favorite on a fast track Feb. 24. Brad Cox excels with his first turf starters and the Artie Schiller colt figures to stalk the pace.
#4 War Film (9-2) won his turf route debut at Churchill Downs last fall and the show finisher was a next-out winner. Florent Geroux seemingly chose him over my top choice and he wins races with Steve Asmussen. A stalking trip is expected.
