9 Stephanie's Kitten(L) 121 Velazquez 2-2-5 Brown 5-2

Happy My Way is fleet-footed, owns fast final figures and fired 5-furlong bullet on Sept. 18. Salutos Amigos was a clear-cut second in last and owns rapid late pace numbers on best efforts. Zee Bros could be set for best in third start since five-month layoff; price will be tempting.
