Progeny of Orb have moved up on turf in a small sample of runners.
Trainer Joe Sharp gets a 98 Trainer Rating when teaming up with jockey Luis Saez.

American Gal (#10)

Ran better than it seems after wide trips in her final couple of starts as a 2-year-old.

Race 10:
Bar of Gold (#8)

Has made premature moves into slow paces in both of her turf races.
The Pace Projector is predicting she will get a fast pace to close into this time.
Is well-bred for turf, and should be ready to produce her best effort over that surface this time.
