#2 Play Reveille                                 5/2
#4 Dream Season                              6/1
#7 Track Majesty                             5/1
#8 Roll Model                                    4/1

Historically, Harris Farms, Inc. has been tremendous with second-time starters. They own #2 Play Reveille, who broke slowly in her first start then took the lead before weakening in the stretch. The main knock on this horse is that jockey Joel Rosario opts for #7 Track Majesty.

Coming off a six-month layoff, Track Majesty should be right near the lead and is a huge threat to wire the field. She had a decent workout Feb. 9, but the rest are slow. However, that is common practice for this barn.

I give two other second-time starters a puncher’s chance: #4 Dream Season delivered a satisfactory rally in her Jan. 23 debut and #8 Roll Model ran OK first time out, also.

But I will bet $250 on both #2 Play Reveille and #7 Track Majesty at 2/1 or more.
