Selection – Known Agenda ( 5 / 6 ) NAP
The Todd Pletcher trained Known Agenda has recently seen tried at a very high level including two runs ago in a stakes event at Aqueduct finishing third of five and then last time at Tampa in the Grade 3 Sam F . Davis Stakes finishing fifth. If we take a look back at the last run he was sent off ( 11/10 ) favourite and had Johnny Velazquez so it was all systems go and looking at the race he was drawn ok and I’m not making this up but he never went a yard in the early going and wasn’t even in a shot around the halfway point and was in the final two and that continued till around a hundred yards from the winning line where he was bursting with a power pact finish and looking at the margin he was beaten by it was around five / six lengths, and to be honest with you I can’t really tell you why he ran like that but the only encouraging thing to come out of the race was the way he finished. Looking at tonight’s race this is a huge drop-in class. We had Irad onboard which is always a huge plus here at the track as he rides it so well and were drawn in the gate ( 4 ) and that’s alright as its only a six runner field. Todd also has the second favourite in here Amount ( 9 / 2 ) drawn in the gate ( 6 ) and although he is a very nice horse he has to come back from finishing ninth in the Grade 3 Holy Bull Stakes. So with all that in mind I’m hoping Saez aboard the second favourite can set the early fractions and give our mount a nice toe into the race and give us a nice clear cut success and get him back on track with a victory.
