TVG Expert: Rich Perloff

Pimlico, Race 5

1. REAL NEWS

2. EONS

3. WAR FILM

REAL NEWS will be racing around two turns for the first time in the Murphy, but his pedigree says that a mile should be within his scope. He’s by THE FACTOR, who won the Rebel S. (G2) at Oaklawn, and his half-brother, GOOD MORNING DIVA, won the Calder Derby. REAL NEWS was a clear-cut second best in the Palisades Turf Sprint at Keeneland last out, when he chased Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint champion BULLETIN to the wire.

EONS improved a ton with the addition of blinkers in career start #3, and another step forward puts him squarely in the conversation against these.

WAR FILM also appears to be on a pretty steep upward trajectory for trainer Steve Asmussen. He hasn’t show much early speed in his three starts this year, but he can come home in a hurry.
