This Withers also looks to attract two Todd Pletcher trainees: OVERTOOK, the son of CURLIN, and DONEGAL BAY, the son of UNCLE MO. Both come off maiden special weight victories and trying stakes competition for the first time.
EAGLE ORB, if entered, will try to turn the tables on CAPO KANE, having lost to him in the Jerome Stakes while being more favored at 9-5 than CAPO KANE at 6-1. EAGLE ORB is trained by Rudy Rodriguez. He is the son of ORB out of LADY ON HOLIDAY by HARLAN'S HOLIDAY.
The rest of the probables are: SHACQUEENKING, ROYAL NUMBER, RISK TAKING.
The Withers, a historic stakes race, dating back to its first running in 1874 at Jerome Park. Be sure to tune in Saturday so you don't miss it! Consider that the Wood Memorial Stakes (G2) favorite may emerge from this field.
