2nd: 37th Mount Vernon, F&M-3+, 1m-T (P4, P3, DD)

Terrific matchup with returnees and 2nd off winter break runners including Joe Gioia's defending winner Maj Jong Maddnes. Any combo of the 7 is possible..

3rd: 3rd Commentator, 3+, 1m (P3, DD)

Even as a one-turner, not that much pace involved with Readbytheline targeted by Saratoga Snacks from the outset. Hard for me to not be openly supportive of Snacks and Sciacca, but reality is 6yo ridgling is the one to beat and doing well with pair of nice efforts since the return to Barn 60..

A number of 1-for's here like 1-for-22 Prize Taker, 1-for-25 Legally Bay and 1-for-15 Shades of Indigo making those with abbreviated resumes more appealing on win end..
