PACE SCENARIO: Several horses in here could attempt to lead the way, including likely favorite Verrazano, longshot Broadway Empire and Alpha.  The top finishers in this race will runners who can sit a good tactical trip and then finish strong.  2012 Travers Stakes winner Golden Ticket was ‘short’ in his last race and now reunites with jockey Joel Rosario. Big effort expected from him as well as another longshot, Centralintelligence, who loves this track and has been training well for Ron Ellis.

Spot Play? Play both Golden Ticket and Centralintelligence to Win.  Key the top two selections, Golden Ticket and Centralintelligence, in exactas and trifectas.  Also, box the top four choices, plus #5 Fed Biz, in an exacta box.

Selections:

1st- # 2 Golden Ticket

2nd- # 9 Centralintelligence

3rd- # 4 Brujo De Olleros

4th- #12 Goldencents
