Grade 2, Six and a half furlongs, Dirt, open to three-year-old horses. Total prize pool: $300,000

Steve Asmussen has trained the winner of this race for the past three years and heads into this year’s race with another strong chance. Ryvit is a winner of his last five races and laid down a significant marker in the lead up to the race with convincing victories in both the 2023 Chick Lang Stakes and 2023 Bachelor Stakes.

A confirmed front runner, look for him to start fast and dictate affairs from the front.

Both Drew’s Gold and Gilmore will renew rivalries from the 2023 Woody Stephens Stakes where they finished second and third respectively.

Drew’s Gold defeat in the Woody Stephens was the first time that he had tasted defeat, however, it could be argued that his one length defeat to Arabian Lion is some of the strongest form on offer within the race.

Having shown improvement with each run, impressive wins in both the 2023 Jimmy Winkfield Stakes and 2023 Gold Fever Stakes mark him out as a major contender.

Since breaking his Maiden, Gilmore has gone five races without a win, and his lack of winning form is a worry when heading into a race of this class.

Despite not being able to get his head in front, it isn’t all doom and gloom as he has only failed to finish outside the top three on one occasion. Placed form in the 2023 Bay Shore Stakes and 2023 Pat Day Mile Stakes shouldn’t be overlooked.

Joey Freshwater was the winner of the 2023 Bay Shore Stakes but is now winless in his last four starts. His second place in the 2023 Quick Call Stakes last time out was a better performance and he could be another credible contender.

The most interesting horse in the race is New York Thunder.

A winner of all three career starts, this will be his first attempt in Graded Stakes company. He heads into the contest fresh off the back of a smart victory in the 2023 Woodstock Stakes where he won by seven lengths. With the potential to be anything, he is undoubtedly the wild card of the race.

Deer District will be having his first start in graded company since finishing as the runner up in the 2022 Castle & Key Bourbon Stakes. Having mostly raced in Allowance company since, it looks like he will need to produce a career best performance to end out on top.

Connections of Ryvit will be hopeful of another success and he could take all the beating in this year’s Amsterdam. New York Thunder is the unknown factor, and the Jorge Delgado runner could be the value option of the race.
