On Sunday at Remington Park, the featured race is the $250,000 Remington Springboard Mile. Restricted to two-year-olds, the one mile contest has drawn a field of twelve colts and geldings.

Esposito has been tabbed as the morning line favorite in the wide open field at odds of 5-2 for trainer Tom Proctor. Bred in Ontario, the bay son of Ghostzapper sold for $45,000 as a yearling and has one win from two starts. After finishing third in his debut, he broke his maiden in his next start at Del Mar by 2 ½ lengths. He will be stepping up to stakes competition for the first time and is scheduled to break from post position two under jockey Drayden Van Dyke.
