Some old rivals return to the turf for a little speedwork…

Post Horse Jockey Trainer ML Odds
1. Grand Adventure Javier Castellano Mark R. Frostad 20-1
It’s been a long time since he’s found the winner’s circle.
2. Holiday for Kitten Joel Rosario Wesley A. Ward 30-1
Has some good experience, but with lesser company.
3. Broken Dreams Garrett Gomez Thomas F. Proctor 20-1
Won last time out, but a taller order here.
4. Perfect Officer Kendrick Carmouche Michael Pino 12-1
May well finish in the money, but I don’t see him winning.
5. Great Attack Jeffrey Sanchez Wesley A. Ward 20-1
Last victory was a 2010 allowance race.
6. California Flag Patrick Venezuela Brian J. Koriner 15-1
Won this race in ’09, unlucky last year; comes in on a win. Would be a great story.
7. Hoofit   Edgar Prado H. Graham Motion 15-1
Intriguing NZ-bred looked great in his first two US races.
8. Regally Ready Corey Nakatani Steven M. Asmussen 3-1
Toss his penultimate race and he’s had a great year.
9. Rapport Brian Hernandez Jr. Ronny W. Werner 30-1
First race of this year was in October; last win was in 2010.
10. Havelock Robby Albarado Darrin Miller 9-2
Won last time despite a very wide trip; a worthy favorite.
11. Country Day James Graham Stephen R. Margolis 20-1
Probably a notch blow some of these.
12. Camp Victory Julien Leparoux Mike  R. Mitchell 12-1
Second to The Factor not long ago and often finishes in the money.
13. Caracortado Joe Talamo Michael Machowsky 4-1
Won last time despite a troubled trip; seems to have returned to form.
14. Chamberlain Bridge Jamie Theriot W. Bret Calhoun 5-1
Has not had the best of luck this year, but has the talent.

Predictions: Havelock, Caracortado, Regally Ready, Chamberlain Bridge
Longshot: Hoofit
