He’ll be too short to wager on, but #5 Red Sun seems like a logical ShowVivor pick – assuming you’re still in the contest – in today’s 1st race. The Carla Gaines-trained gelding was beaten a half length in his debut despite a slow start and has come back to train especially well, indicating a substantial forward move is likely. He doesn’t have a whole lot to beat in this straight maiden state bred affair and should go on to bigger and better things down the road.
