Race 2

#2 Court Sky (9-2) faded to finish a well-beaten fourth on the main track at Laurel over one mile in his latest in July. Colt showed little in one previous start on grass, but should be suited to the surface being out of a mare by Kingmambo. Trainer Gonzalez has won with 22% of his runners this year and dark bay can be in good position throughout under Ocasio, who has won with 18% of his rides for the barn in the past 60 days.

Race 7

Trainer Coletti wins with 17% of his first-time starters and saddles #9 Perfecta Storm (8-1), a debuting daughter of 14% first-out sire Morning Line who is out of a mare by Storm Cat. Half-sister to two winners has been working forwardly and Coletti has won with 14% of his runners at this meet. Filly is likely ready for a good first outing with Rosado riding.

Indiana Grand

Race 4

Blinkers are added to #10 Committed (8-1), who made mild progress when fourth in his debut over 5 1/2 furlongs at Ellis Park in late July. Son of 13% grass sire More Than Ready is out of a half-sister to Higher Power, who won the Pacific Classic (G1), and trainer Casse wins with 16% of his runners that have not raced for 46-90 days. Dark bay cost $325K as a yearling and can show more here with Bridgmohan in the saddle.

Race 7

#3 She’s All Skeet (12-1) makes her first outing for trainer Shirer after finishing fifth of six at Ellis Park in mid-July. Shirer wins with 20% of his runners that have not raced for 46-90 days and has won with 21% of his starters since the beginning of the year. Mare should find a decent pace to close into with Parker taking the mount.
