#9 ROCKO'S WHEEL
Winner of two of his last three starts for a trainer who is absolutely on fire right now. Has a bit of turf breeding in the pedigree. Dam was strictly a turfer in her day. Reportedly working step in step with turf stakes winner Papacoolpapacool. Talamo had choices but lands on him.
#5 GRAZEN SKY
Never been out of the exacta in his 6 starts for normally high percentage trainer/owner. Sat up on the pace in the Silky Sullivan and was best inching away over a few of these. Winner two back returned to run 3rd in the Pat Day Mile on Derby Day (G3). One to beat.
