Superfecta Sunday at Sunland

Can't believe it Superfecta Sunday already. Today there are more Kentucky Derby points on the line as we head to enchanting New Mexico.

Sunland Park Race 11 {Sunland Derby~G3~1 1/8 mile~3 year-old~Graded Stakes}
A field of seven Derby aspirants will hit the dirt in this annual Derby prep. All are capable of showing speed making it an interesting race. There is quite a gap between a few in here relative to speed numbers. While the outcome might be predictable as far as the winner is concerned, it is less certain as to which competitors might earn the remaining Derby points. Of course, our task is to sketch a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#1 Firing Line (Stevens / Callaghan) is the deserved favorite with the highest last out speed number, a triple digit one at that. He comes into New Mexico from Santa Anita with a four race progression and four sensational workouts. This lad should sit right off the pace setters ready to spring into the stretch.

#8 Dirt Monster (Eikleberry / Evans) could surprise with a couple of decent last out speed numbers, a three race progression, and two robust workouts. As his name suggest he does relish the dirt surface having a 100% in the money record from six starts over it. This guy has a versatile running style which should plug into this race splendidly. He is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#4 Why Two (Espinoza / Machowsky) should challenge with the second highest last out speed number and three endurance peaking workouts. He should be forwardly placed ready to rumble. As all of these fellows in this race, he will be stretching out to this distance. He comes in off a victory in the Turf Paradise Derby.

#7 Pain and Misery (Arroyo / Dominguez) has home court advantage with a couple of decent last out speed numbers and two stout peaking workouts. Having faced stiff competition at Santa Anita, he comes in here to move forward.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#1 Firing Line  +  #8 Dirt Monster  +  #4 Why Two  +  #7 Pain and Misery.
