Aqueduct First Race.  Post time: 1:20 ET

3-Forwardly (9/5)

Was given a very easy race in his debut last November, lagging early and then finishing on his own courage when fifth, beaten just over three lengths, in a performance that was better than the line will show.  The Chad Brown-trained colt sports a solid series of workouts for his return and will appreciate this nine furlong trip, and as a first-time Lasix user with a healthy, steady series of drills, the son of Twirling Candy looks hard to beat in this maiden turf affair for older horses.

Keeneland Ninth Race.  Post time: 5:16 ET 

1-Bemma’s Boy (5-1) 

With a couple of middle distance tighteners at Fair Grounds behind him, this proven marathoner gets his favorite trip in this year’s edition of the Elkhorn S.-G2, and in a race loaded with front-running speed types his closing style should be extremely effective.  The Mike Maker-trained gelding is assured a ground-saving trip from his rail pos and will get his preferred patient ride from new pilot Umberto Rispoli, so at 5-1 on the morning line the son of Into Mischief represents a good gamble in the win pool and in the various rolling exotics.
