DRF Plus Graded Stakes Analysis: Eclipse Stakes

Email

FRAC DADDY won both times he ran on Polytrack at Keeneland so he should be comfortable running over the Poly at Woodbine for the first time. He earned a 103 Beyer Speed Figure for his win over STEALCASE in the Grade 3 Ben Ali at Keeneland two back and the horse that finished third won a Grade 3 at Arlington in his next start. Frac Daddy attended the pace before tiring to finish fourth in the Grade 1 Man Of War in his latest start and should appreciate the easier company, the shorter distance, and being back on a synthetic surface. If he comes close to repeating his impressive performance in the Ben Ali he’s going to be the winner. His five-furlong move at Belmont in :58.20 seconds May 26 is a strong signal he’s ready for another big outing.
