Race 10), 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) Lucky Coin S. Purse $100,000 FOR FOUR-YEAR-OLDS AND UPWARD WHICH HAVE NEVER WON A SWEEPSTAKE IN 2017.
Post Time: ( 6:17)/ 5:17/ 4:17/ 3:17
ADVANCED FORECAST: Mostly Sunny, High 65 Low 42.
Dream Mover (1), Irish-breds North American debut was a classic one, coming from the rear to get up in the final 70 yards to win by less than a length; bullet work, but may need longer.
Ready for Rye (2), 5-year-old has hit the board in 7-of-10 starts over the last two campaigns, however with only one trip to the winners circle; not convinced surface switch works here.
We Deer You (3), 4-year-old is proven on both turf and synthetics, which plays well here; Irad Ortiz returns who was aboard for his turf win two back.
Spring to the Sky (4), running late, 8-year-old missed by a neck here in July; finished fourth in this a year ago.
Dowse’s Beach (5), 6-year-old, always forwardly placed, was caught late last out in the Grade 2 Play King at Woodbine; owns three wins from four turf starts here; the one to catch.
Big Rock (6), game win here in last, run at today’s route. Trainer Clement with a last out winner, 20 percent.
Doctor J Dub (7), 7-year-old makes his 27th start over the last two seasons; winless in nine tries this year; pass.
Loose On the Town (8), has won 2-of-4 turf starts along with a third, and has been a tough out here on the main track. Hall of Fame rider Castellano stays, and was aboard for those turf victories.
Undrafted (9), veteran had gate issues in last and it cost him finishing a well beaten fourth. He gives it his all, but the draft clock maybe running out.
Selections: 5, 8, 6, 1
