Race 1

Friend of Liberty (#1)

Raced three wide against a rail bias last time.

Should be up close stalking the early pace in a situation favoring horses on or near the lead.

DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past year, Robert Falcone Jr. is 7 for 20 (35 percent) first off the claim, with an ROI of nearly $4.

Race 3

Securitiz (#4)

Made a wide move after today's rival Thebigfundamental last time over a racetrack that was favoring inside speed.

Has run well at this nine-furlong distance.
