The Queen's Plate attracted 13 three-year-olds, including the top three from the Plate Trial with winner Amis Gizmo expected to go favored against a dozen sophomores. Amis Gizmo has won five of six races with his lone loss coming in his three-year-old debut. Shakhimat was the beaten favorite in the Plate Trial and is the 5-to-1 second choice here.
But neither Ed DeRosa nor Vance Hansson went with either of the favorites, preferring a couple of three-year-olds by Ghostzapper: Gamble's Ghost and Esposito, respectively. In addition to agreeing on the sire of the winner, both DeRosa and Hanson tabbed All On Red as a longshot to key underneath.
