Pimlico Race 3 (1:46 pm ET)
#6 Sir Back In Black (6-1 ML)
Move to Pimlico for the first time is key with this son of Golden Lad, whose offspring have run exceptionally well at Pimlico since the meet opened 2 weeks ago. Trainer Jamie Ness aims for Pimlico annually and should have this one readied for a minor upset bid. Win-place on No. 6.
Gulfstream Race 7 (3:54 pm ET)
#2 La Rusia (2-1 ML)
No trainer has been hotter at Gulfstream since mid-April than Victor Barboza with 6 winners from his last 12 starters. La Rusia moves to his barn for the first time and likely will improve his form from his previous trainers. Win 2. Daily double 2-3 to Barboza's only other starter on the card, Cheval Dore in Race 8.
