I don't have any special insights into the wind.

I wasn't surprised Midnight Bourbon went for the lead from the rail, but even with some of the speed scratching I thought there was enough speed to keep it honest. Proxy had some speed. (he stalked). Regular Guy, Red and Wild, and Santa Cruiser had all shown some speed at times but didn't go this time.

Ultimately, I think the top 3 were better than the others, but the pace/flow probably wound up favoring Midnight Bourbon loose on the lead in a moderately slow pace.

Santa Cruiser has some speed. He wound up getting out of the gate about a length slow, then got squeezed a bit, and dropped far back. He was the only one besides the top 3 running late. If he gets out better next next, gets better position, and has a little more pace to run at, I'd expect him improve quite a bit. Though he may need a little softer than these to win.
