The two-year-old colt is coming off of a 1st place victory in the Skidmore race as well as placing 2nd in the Norfolk Stakes and the MSW. It is no surprise that Golden Pal is favored in the Juvenile Turf Sprint as well as its speed has been proven all year.

Sports bettors should also look at the longshot odds on Bodenheimer, however, as the young thoroughbred has boasted impressive speeds of its own.

The 1:02.70 time posted for the Indiana Summer Stakes was a firm turf course record. This makes the Valorie Lund trained horse seem promising in the Juvenile Turf run for Race 6.
