SPIRAL STAKES THE TOP DRAW AT TURFWAY
An overflow field is expected to contest the Saturday feature at Turfway Park, the G3 $500,000 Vinery Spiral Stakes. Positive Response was a most impressive winner of the John Battaglia Stakes in preparation of this and surely deserves a long look in this one. The son of Pomeroy has very good early speed and will likely be the one to catch turning for home.
Twinspired failed as the favorite when fourth in the Battaglia, but shows excellent Polytrack form and can’t be dismissed for smart conditioner Mike Maker. Impressive Gulfstream Park allowance winner Crimson China could be any type and would be a huge threat on this day for Graham Motion, if he runs his best. Whirlaway Stakes. third Preachintothedevil, G2 Robert Lewis Stakes fourth Thirtyfirststreet, Hallandale Beach Stakes winner King Congie and Decisive Moment, could all challenge for the win.
The G3 $100,000 Bourbonette Oaks, $100,000 Rushaway Stakes, $50,000 Hansel Stakes and $50,000 Queen Stakes, comprise the undercard for Turfway’s signature spring date.
First post at Turfway on Saturday is set for 1:10pm ET/10:10am PT
