Pimlico Race 3 – Post time: 1:40 ET

3-Determined Truth (4-1) 

The daughter of Flatter from the stakes-winning dam of Spinaway S.-G1 winner Perfect Alibi makes her debut in a rather soft maiden special weight sprint for fillies and appears well-spotted to graduate at first asking following a healthy series of workouts at Fair Hill.  The P. Schoenthal-trained juvenile recorded a bullet five furlong 1:00b drill seven days ago to have her on edge, so at 4-1 on the morning line she’ll offer good wagering value in the win pool and as a rolling exotic single.

Ellis Park Race 4 – Post time: 2:14 CT

8-Indian Ink (3-1) 

From the first crop of the outstanding turf miler Midnight Storm, this quick colt breezed a furlong in 9 4/5 seconds (fastest for the distance in the preview session) at the OBS April Sale before bringing $310,000 through the ring.  His recent work tab also has been very impressive for the high-percentage B. Cox barn, so with one of the stable’s “go-to” riders F. Geroux taking the call this excellent prospect appears ready to graduate at first asking in this five and one-half grass dash for 2-year-olds.  He’s 3-1 on the morning line and we’ll take it if we can get it.
