GIII Indiana Derby victor Shared Sense (Street Sense) looks to add to his Derby collection in Sunday's GIII Oklahoma Derby. Second behind subsequent GII Toyota Blue Grass S. winner Art Collector (Bernardini) in a June 13 optional claimer, the bay won the Indiana Derby by three lengths July 8 and was fifth to Art Collector in the Ellis Park Derby Aug. 9.
Rowdy Yates (Morning Line) kicked off this term with a win in the Riley Allison Derby Jan. 26 and was fourth in the Saudi Derby Cup S. Feb. 29. Filling the same spot behind the re-opposing Dean Martini (Cairo Prince) in the GIII Ohio Derby June 27, the dark bay completed the superfecta in the Ellis Park Derby. Dean Martini was sixth in that event.
Avant Garde (Tonalist) takes a big step up in class in this test. Breaking his maiden while in for $25,000 at Gulfstream in July, the gelding won another $25,000 claiming event July 23 in Hallandale and scored at the $50,000 level Aug. 13. He captured a starter allowance by 4 1/2 lengths at Gulfstream last time Sept. 5.
