Prospect Park tops the field as the morning line favorite at odds of 5-2 for trainer Clifford Sise, Jr. A dark bay son of Tapit, he has been on the board in seven of his nine starts and is trying to earn the first graded stakes victory of his career. He will be switching to the turf for the first time and was last seen finishing second in both the Los Alamitos Derby (G2) and Affirmed Stakes (G2). Kent Desormeaux will be aboard and they will break from post position nine.
Papacoolpapacool trying to return to form
Second choice at 3-1 on the morning line is Papacoolpapacool for trainer Philip D’Amato. A gelded son of Temple City, he has won four of his ten starts and is a multiple stakes winner. He is trying to return to form after a pair of average efforts and was last seen finishing fifth in the Oceanside Stakes at Del Mar. Gary Stevens will be aboard and they will break from post position six.
