BC Juvenile

Looking At Bikinis = Son of Lookin At Lucky who is 1/1 after winning impressively at Belmont. – Chad Brown comes back to win 28% off a maiden win.

Game Winner = Son of Candy Ride who is a perfect 3/3 in California – The works have been sparkling for trainer Bob Baffert.


BC Juvenile Fillies

Bellafina = Daughter of Quality Road who is as tough as a nickel steak – She is 4/4 ITM with three wins – She’s gonna be nasty to deal with.

Nonna Madelina = If she gets a clean trip or doesn’t act up, she could be a major factor – Daughter of Candy Ride for Todd Pletcher.


BC Juvenile Turf

Advertise = Comes in from The Curragh and is 4/4 ITM – He is lightly raced and should be up close in the mile distance.

Anthony Van Dyke = Aiden O’Brien trainee who is 4/5 ITM and won at a mile back in July – Son of Galileo could give them a tough time.


BC Juvenile Fillies Turf

Newspaperofrecord = She is 2/2 and exits a win in the G3 Miss Grillo – Chad Brown will have her cranked up for peak performance.

La Pelosa = Daughter of Dandy Man and won the G1 Natalma at Woodbine – She enjoyed the Lasix and Godolphin may have a real runner in this lady.


 BC Juvenile Turf Sprint

Moonlight Romance = She beat the boys at KyD for trainer Wesley Ward – She loves the states and Lasix looks to have helped.

Pakhet = She closed strongly in a maiden break and would be turning back to a sprint where she will come flying late for Todd Pletcher – She had a last minute prep running 2nd in the G2 Jessamine at Keeneland on Wednesday – She came rolling quick and should enjoy the turn back to a sprint.

Shang Shang Shang = Wesley Ward has a monster here who won at Royal Ascot – She should enjoy coming back to the states and getting Lasix again.
