Lone Star: Firster early favorite in race 10

EmailThe first-time starter Jethro has opened up as the 2-1 favorite in the upcoming 10th race, a maiden special weight sprint at five furlongs on turf. He worked a bullet half-mile in 48 seconds in his final prep for his debut June 19, and has some nice turf and speed influences in his pedigree. Martin Escobar has the mount for trainer Brent Charlton.
