R7: $100,000 Dania Beach Stakes (8F, Turf, 3yr Olds)

#1 – Candidate (6-1): Might be a bit of a stretch pick but I am not 100% sold on this group. The chestnut son of Exaggerator is 2-for-2 over the sod and has proven he can play lamplighter or sit just off the pace. He cut the corner tremendously in his previous outing race and I think he can surprise here. #2 – Major Dude (8-5) finished ninth of 13 in the BC Juvenile Turf but ran well given the outside post (13 of 14). Irad Ortiz Jr. will pilot and these two won the Gr. II Pilgrim back in early October. #7 – Worthington (3-1) is a steadily improving type for Mike Maker and took his previous two races. Plays: #1 to Win, Exacta Box 1,2

R9: $100,000 Ginger Brew Stakes (8F, Turf, 3yr Old Fillies)

#9 – Erna (4-1): Finished second on debut [by a neck] going 8.5F’s with the winner coming back and repeating in her subsequent start. The daughter of Curlin broke her maiden on second asking, at this same distance and should be able to work out a trip from the outside post. #2 – Cairo Consort (7-5) ran third in the BC Juvenile Fillies Turf on November 4th and has since had a change of scenery, moving to the Pletcher barn. Irad Ortiz Jr. jumps aboard and she’ll be tough to beat. #7 – Navy Goat (8-1) a pricey purchase by Army Mule, the Arnaud Delacour trainee has won over turf and synthetic already and I could see dirt in the near future as well. Plays: #9 to Win, Exacta Key 3 – 7,9
