Category : News - Fri 24/07/2015 - 09:29 EDT

Blame Jim tops the field as the morning line favorite at odds of 7-5 for trainer Todd Pletcher. Bred and owned by Repole Stable, the bay son of Sharp Humor has two wins from six starts and will be trying to earn his first stakes victory. Last time out, he was second in an optional claiming race at Belmont Park. Abel Castellano, Jr. will be aboard and they are scheduled to break from post position three.

Joe Franklin trying for first stakes victory

Second choice at 4-1 on the morning line is Joe Franklin for trainer David Jacobson. A dark bay son of Bernstein, he has been on the board in five of his six starts and is a three-time winner. He will be trying for his first black type victory and comes into this race off of a front-running score as the favorite in an optional claiming race at Monmouth Park. No rider has been listed yet and will likely be named Saturday.

Bluegrass Cat aiming to reverse his form

Also in the field at morning line odds of 9-2 is Bluegrass Singer for trainer Marcus Vitali. A gray son of Bluegrass Cat owned by Crossed Sabres Farm, he has won four of his fourteen starts and was briefly on the Triple Crown trail in the spring before finding his niche sprinting. He is trying to rebound after finishing ninth in the Carry Back Stakes (G3) and will have Michael Rispoli aboard from post six.
