Three Year Old Grass Horses Do Battle in Pennine Ridge

Trainer Chad Brown’s coupled entry of Startup Nation and Takeover Target comprise the 2/1 morning line favorite. Takeover Target, undefeated in two starts, broke his maiden October 26 going a mile over a yielding turf course at Belmont and did not return until winning an $80,000 optional claimer on the grass May 7 by a length and a quarter. Jockey Irad Ortiz was aboard for both wins and returns in search of a third consecutive victory on the promising son of Harlan’s Holiday. Startup Nation has won two of four starts, but hasn’t raced since finishing eleventh in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf October 31 at Santa Anita. 

Kentucky shipper has live look

Divisidero (5/2) ships in from Churchill after winning the Grade 2 American Turf on May 2 for trainer William Bradley. That effort was the Kitten’s Joy colt’s first start since finishing third in the Grade 3 Palm Beach at Gulfstream. Divisidero has won two of three career starts using a strong late closing kick. Bradley connects at a 15% clip with runners making their second start off the layoff.

Speedy colt showing improvement 

Made in Detroit (5/1) has early speed and appears to be an improving colt for trainer Richard Violette.  In his last start, Made in Detroit finished a game second in the Woodhaven Stakes April 18 at Aqueduct, yielding in the final strides. The son of Arch has one win from six career starts.
