2 Dancinthenightaway – Gets the acid test today in a grade 2 stakes; unbeaten in 3 starts, time to get some black type.

Race 7 – 1 mile, Purse $58,000, Optional claiming $40,000, 4-year-olds and up

2 Catch a Flight – Taking a flyer on this well regarded Brazilian import; going to the right barn in Richard Mandella.
