Race 6

Devine Union (#7)

Has been hampered by speed-favoring tracks (indicated by pink and red color-coded Race Rating boxes in the PPs).

Was probably best last time when racing wide against an inside bias at Aqueduct.

DRF Formulator Fact: Over the past five years, Chad Brown is 5 for 12 (42 percent, $2.47 ROI) with maidens returning from layoffs of 180 days or more in dirt sprints.

7-2 on ML

Race 8

La Manta Gris (#1)

The Pace Projector is predicting she will be placed relatively close to the early pace in a race lacking any confirmed front-runners.

Beat a decent field with a strong stretch run when breaking her maiden two back.

Is bred to stretch out in distance, being by Lemon Drop Kid out of a dam that was best from 10 to 12 furlongs on turf.
