Home Run Kitten tops the field as the morning line favorite at odds of 5-2 for trainer David Hofmans. A four-year-old son of Kitten’s Joy, the chestnut colt has won four of his thirteen starts and is a graded stakes winner. He has been third in both starts this year, most recently in the Frank E. Kilroe Mile (G1) and will cut back in distance. Gary Stevens will be aboard and they will break from post two.

Second choice at 3-1 on the morning line is Holy Lute for trainer James Cassidy. A five-year-old son of Midnight Lute, he has won three of his thirteen starts and is trying to earn the first graded stakes victory of his career. He stepped back up to graded stakes competition last time out after winning an optional claiming race and finished seventh in the Frank E. Kilroe Mile (G1). Mike Smith will be in the irons from post position five.
