Skyway Slight Favorite in Futurity

Best Pal Stakes winner Skyway was established as the 7-2 morning line favorite for the $300,000 Grade I Del Mar Futurity on Wednesday by track oddsmaker Russ Hudak.

Skyway, a New York-bred son of Sky Mesa owned by John C. Oxley and trained by Mark Casse, was a 1 ¼-length winner over Henry’s Holiday in the Grade II Best Pal on August 3, covering 6 ½ furlongs under Stewart Elliott in 1:16.60. Corey Nakatani replaces the injured Elliott for the Futurity, the traditional closing day feature which determines the meet’s 2-year-old champion.

Skyway has had two works since the Best Pal in preparation for the 7-furlong test.

“His first work after the Best Pal, I was a little disappointed in because it kind of got a little messed up,” Casse said. “But I thought his work after that was super. We’re ready.”

From the rail out the field is: American Pharoah (Victor Espinoza, 6-1), Oh Newman (Aaron Gryder, 8-1), Inexcess Time (Joe Talamo, 15-1), Calculator (Elvis Trujillo, 8-1), Iron Fist (Mike Smith, 5-1), Henry’s Holiday (Tyler Baze, 5-1), Red Button (Rafael Bejarano, 8-1), Holiday Camp (Martin Garcia, 9-2) and Skyway (Corey Nakatani, 7-2).
