Pimlico – Tenth race. Post time: 4:09 ET
2-Red Ghost (5-1)
Lightly-raced but talented filly made her sophomore debut at Keeneland last month and was a visually pleasing winner of a first-level allowance race when rallying from mid-pack to drew clear in the final furlong without being knocked about. The daughter of Ghostzapper can build on that performance today for the W. Ward/J. Velasquez team and perhaps settle in the second flight and then produce another winning late kick. At 5-1 on the morning line she offers good value in the win pool and in rolling exotic play.
Pimlico – Eleventh Race. Post time: 4:40 ET
1-Tracy Flick (6-1)
Sophomore filly technically is still a maiden, but she can run, and we suspect the addition of blinkers will really move her up. Disqualified out of a winning debut race at Gulfstream Park in February, the daughter of War Front returned at Keeneland last month and ran quite well in a hot race to miss by a nose, only to get taken down again for racing greenly and causing interference in mid-stretch. She’s worked well since, draws the rail, is a fit on speed figures and retains J. Rosario, so if she performs mistake free she can pull off a mild surprise at 6-1 on the morning line in this year’s edition of the Hilltop S.
