INDIANA DERBY-Grade 3 

Race 12 Post Time 6:41 ET
(2) STRONGHOLD 

Has wisely been freshened since reporting home a well-beaten seventh in the Kentucky Derby back in May; his lone off-the-board finish in seven career starts. His time off has appeared to work wonders for him as he recently delivered an eye-catching five furlong bullet work on June 30 at his Santa Anita Park homebase. The connections of Stronghold have wisely decided to bypass the tougher Grade 1 Haskell at Monmouth Park on July 20 for this softer spot. A gem of consistency throughout his career, Stronghold is expected to relish the cut back in distance to 1 1/16 miles while enjoying considerable class relief as well. Well-drawn towards the inside, his sit and pounce running is a definite plus over a track that is usually kind to early speedrunners. Antonio Fresu ventures in from California for the ride, completing a potent trainer/jock combo.
