#3 THE LONGEST NIGHT (9-2) landed the place in all three dirt sprints and was clearly second best at this course/distance under Friday's rider Martin Garcia July 5 (blinkers on). He dueled from the rail and weakened to 4th in a turf route July 27, and this looks like a great spot to pick up his first win. 

#1 Speed Pass (7-2) is a $150k Keeneland sales grad for strong debut trainer Bob Baffert, and he has multiple local bullets in his holster. 

#2 Stretford End (5-2) finished 2nd in all three fast track starts last year, and he caught the slop and retreated to 7th in his lone try this year Feb. 14. Simon Callaghan's $600k purchase is strictly the one to beat if he can rediscover his 2018 form. 

#8 Awesome Score (8-1) shows two local bullets for this engagement, and Kristin Mulhall can strike with a first time starter. 


#3 to Win

Exacta 1-3-8/2

Trifecta 1-8/2-3/2-3
