Calder Turf, Warm and Wonderful

We are back on an exciting Stakes Saturday looking at a classic Turf race at venerable Calder Race Course.

Calder Racecourse Race 9 {W.L. McKnight~G2~1 1/2 mile~TURF~3 year old Up~Stakes}
A beautiful day in the Miami area will shine down on the horses.  This race comes up as a competitive one with a field of ten to start on the grass.  Very little speed may give the front runners an edge.  Most of the field will be tracking and closing in this one.  Could be an opportunity for all these talented horses.

#1 Ioya Bigtime (J. Sanchez / Block) may have the edge as the only speedster in the race.  This guy could control the pace on the front.  He holds the fourth highest speed number, a two race progression, and three superb workouts.  He could out dash the favorite.
$1 WIN / $2 SHOW.

#5 Forte Dei Marmi [GB] (G. Saez / Attfield) is the deserved favorite with the highest last out speed number, the highest speed number at the distance, and two robust workouts.  He will be coming late, hoping for a decent pace.
$1 PLACE / $1 SHOW.

#9 Prince Will I Am (Jara / Nihei) should be a contender with the third highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and one solid workout.  He should be tracking the pace and launch into the stretch rapidly.
$1 SHOW.

Another Wagering Interest

#8 Center Divider (L. Saez / Walsh) has run up against some mighty competition at this distance and has yet to find himself in the money.  This race presents an honest opportunity for him to get some cha ching.  He has a couple of decent last out speed numbers and three robust workouts.  He will press the pace.

10 CENT Superfecta

#1 Ioya Bigtime, #5 Forte Dei Marmi [GB] / #1, #5 / #9 Prince Will I Am, #8 Center Divider / #9, #8.
