Tejon Pass 5-1

Tejon Pass has one win out of two events to start this year. Recently, he came away victorious at the Santa Anita Park back in September. He has a great shot to win if he lands a good jump out of the gate and can maintain that pace along the rail.

Wine Me Up 5-1

Wine Me Up has competed in three races this year and has a win and runner-up. His most recent event was an eighth place finish at the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile G1 event. He will be running without blinkers and should be in good shape to make a bigger impact in this race.

Stronghold 3-1

Stronghold won the Churchill Downs maiden race back in October to give him great momentum coming into this one. He is trained by Philip D’Amato and has a win and a second place finish so far in two events this year.

Nysos 4-5

Nysos is arguably the horse to beat here with his latest performance prior to this event. He finished first in his debut at Santa Anita last month, where he won by 10 ½  lengths to take it by storm. Assuming he has a good jump and can replicate that authority, he should have a good chance to win.
