Superfecta Sunday in the Land of Enchantment

A Superfecta Sunday derby prep is on tap in the state of New Mexico as we take in the Sunland Derby.

Sunland Park Race 9 {Sunland Derby~G3~1 1/8 mile~3 year-old~Graded Stakes}

A great field of eleven will go to the gate in this KD 143 prep race with points on the line. Great American trainers have shipped in their charges with the hope of getting them into this years Kentucky Derby. There is sufficient speed to create an honest pace. Speed figs are close as all of these lads will stretch out to this distance for the first time. There are seven Triple Crown nominees in the field. Our task is to string together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket. It should be a fantastic race.

#3 Bronze Age (M. Garcia / Baffert) has the edge with the highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and three exceptional workouts. This guy will show speed as he seeks to wire the field. He comes in from Santa Anita.

#2 Hedge Fund (J. Ortiz / Pletcher) should challenge with the second highest (tie) last out speed number, a two race progression, and four superb workouts. This lad should be sitting right off the pace ready to roll into the stretch. He comes in from Gulfstream Park.

#6 Dilettante (G. Stevens / Lukas) should contend sharing the second highest last out speed number, working a three race progression, and putting in three smashing workouts. He has the tactical speed to sit keenly in positon and rock into the stretch. This colt comes in from Oaklawn Park. He is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#10 Balandeen (Hill / Hartman) should be in the hunt with a couple of decent last out speed numbers, a three race progression, and two stout workouts. He should take up a tracking position and streak into the stretch. He also comes in from Oaklawn Park.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#3 Bronze Age  +  #2 Hedge Fund  +  #6 Dilettante  +  #10 Balandeen.
