Actin Good, a lightly raced 3-year-old gelded son of Yes It's True, has the advantage of being the lone graded stakes winner in the $100,000 Fred W. Hooper Handicap (gr. III) Dec. 15 at Calder Race Course, and drew the outside post in the 1 1/8-mile event on the main track.
The Nov. 10 Red Smith Handicap (gr. IIT) at Aqueduct will be run at a demanding 1 3/8 miles. The turf race also will prove to be a challenge to handicappers.
While most starters in the Sept. 22 Kentucky Cup Turf Stakes (gr. III) will stretch out to tackle the race's 1 1/2 miles, Marty Wolfson trainee Golden Strategy has the distance more than covered.
