A full field of ten speed merchants are entered to sprint five grassy furlongs under $32,000 Optional Claiming conditions in Race 8. Post time is 4:12 PM.
PHILOSOPHY (5) is the one to beat. His last race was an impressive victory here, at this distance on April 4. This four year-old gelding drew away to score by four lengths, earning a superior speed figure, after a less than perfect start. He is in top form now, with two wins in a row and goes for the hat trick today. Jockey Gary Wales returns for the J. Kent Sweezey barn.
