2013 Summer Stakes Race Favorite Entries
Phenomenalmoon - Mark Casse trained colt has some big expectations as does all of Casse's pupils. He enters off a MSW score here August 18 after a third and a fifth respectively in similar races - one at Woodbine and the other at Churchill Downs. He is the most experienced of Casse's pupils entered and may just be his best chance at a Summer Stakes victory. He starts from post 8 with Gary Boulanger in the saddle.
Tropic of Artie - debuted July 20 in this track and finished fifth in the minor Colin Stakes and followed that with an OK second in his only other career start - a MSW also on this track August 24. He will have Patrick Husbands in the saddle from post 2 Saturday.
