Analysis: Marriedtomichael makes her first start since a fourth in her debut back in January on the inner track at the Big A where she was sent off at 8-1 in a field of 11,The filly has put in a  couple of decent looking works for her return for the Brown barn that is 11% winners with runners coming back off a +180 day layoff. Note Castellano takes the call and this gal has a decent pedigree, a half to a couple of winners including stakes winner Marriedtothemusic ($306,391).
Brads Ruby chased the early pace and faded to finish fifth last out in the slop. She comes back off a five month break for the Englehart barn that is 24% winners with runners coming back off a 61-180n day layoff. She landed in the money in her four previous starts and catches a pretty weak group of state breds for her return off the bench. She is out of the stakes winner Reddy for Rubys ($106,214).
