Sometimes it&rsquo;s difficult to figure out how a race will shape up. But in the case of the $100,000 James W. Murphy Stakes, there seems little doubt about which horse is headed to the early lead: Joes Blazing Aaron.\r\n&ldquo;His way is just to get into the race,&rdquo; trainer Mike Maker said. &ldquo;We&rsquo;re going to let him go and do that. He might be better if he puts a little space between himself and the field.&rdquo;\r\nWith Julien Leparoux taking the mount, Joes Blazing Aaron will break from the outside post in the one-mile turf race and try to rebound from a fading finish in the April 16 Blue Grass Stakes. Maker said he believes the free-running gelding could go farther out front when returning to grass, a surface over which he won back-to-back races at Gulfstream Park this winter, including the Grade 3 Palm Beach.\r\nIf Joes Blazing Aaron comes back to the pack, among those ready to pounce could be Master Dunker, a gray colt who gets Ramon Dominguez and the rail; Lil Bit O&rsquo;Fun, a close fourth in a Keeneland turf stakes last month; and Humble and Hungry, a Sagamore Farm colt making his second start of the year after ending 2010 with an eighth-place finish in the Breeders&rsquo; Cup Juvenile Turf.\r\nTen 3-year-olds are entered in the Murphy, which is named for the longtime Maryland-based trainer who died in June 2009.
