Analysis:
Trainer Wesley Ward tends to dominate these baby races, and his coupled entry of FOOT THE BILL and JEALOUS AGAIN should run well here. The former shows some solid workouts at Gulfstream Park in preparation for his career debut while Jealous Again, a filly, is by the fleet sire Trippi. Don't be scared away by the fact that Jealous Again is a filly facing the boys. At this time of year, fillies can successfully compete with their male counterparts.
DREAM VICTORY is a half-brother to juvenile debut winner Ernie Cat, and shows a bullet work over Turfway Park's polytrack surface.
It looks like THEKINGOFTEXAS slightly outworked (.06 seconds faster) stablemate EVIL GENIUS on March 28 at Evangeline.
CARSON'S PRIDE is bred for speed on both sides of the pedigree, but must deal with a daunting inside draw. CATER TO KITTEN is the first starter from millionaire Kitten's Joy, but may appreciate more distance. EVEN WILDER's works look a tad better than mate RIDE COWBOY RIDE, but the "Keeneland Clocker Report" for March 27 notes that Even Wilder "tired a bit the last furlong." SUPRAMAN is the first starter by Roman Ruler, a brilliantly-fast runner in his day. GRECIAN PARADISE may want more ground to work with.

Selections:
1. Foot the Bill
2. Jealous Again
3. Dream Victory

The Play:
The Ward entry to Win at 3-2 odds or greater.
