Ah Day

While the rest of the world has been working out exactas and trifectas for Saturdays Kentucky Derby (presented by Yum), some of us have been handicapping the under card. Maryland bred Ah Day, trained by King Leatherbury will be taking on a great field in the Churchill Downs Stakes (Grade II). Maryland based jockey Mario Pino will get the mount since he will be in Kentucky to ride Hard Spun in the Derby. Ah Day, winner of the 2006 Tesio Stakes at Pimlico has plenty of experience with 20 starts under his belt, and over half a million dollars in earnings. The 2/1 favorite, Half Ours has won all five of his starts, and will be saddled by trainer Todd Pletcher. Ah Day will also have to battle with 5/1 Wanderin Boy (trained by Nick Zito), and the Bill Mott entry Istan (5/1).

Ah Day, King, and Mario.....Your friends in Maryland will be pulling for you. Makes us proud!

and Mario......Good Luck in the Derby!
