Full Salute 5-2 - Edward Plesa trained colt has placed in eight of 10 career starts - five wins and three seconds - the only times he hasn't hit the board have come in graded stakes company. Last time out was a win in the minor Select Stakes June 12 after an Allowance Optional Claiming score May 22 - both on this track. Before that was a sixth in the Grade 3 Hutcheson Stakes at Gulfstream in January, a win in the minor Buffalo Man Stakes in November and a fifth in the Grade 2 Futurity Stakes in October. Full Salute has looked slightly overwhelmed against top company but hopes to change all of that around Saturday. He looks for his third straight win overall with Orlando Bocachica in the irons of the morning line favorite from the outside gate 6.
Front Pocket Money 3-1 - Steve Asmussen trained gelding has placed in three of four career starts - two wins and a second place finish. He makes his stakes debut Saturday off a second in an Allowance Optional Claiming at Churchill Downs June 12, an Allowance score on that track May 5 and a maiden score in April at Oaklawn Park. Front Pocket Money has been good so far and steps up having been a factor in his last three races. Antonio Gallardo has been tabbed to ride the morning line second choice from the rail.
