Brian Crowley Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Open race. Mumbai Muse gets the gun run from the draw and will be hard to hold out. General Salute is heading in the right direction but does map a little tricky. Keenan can land in front and prove tough to mow down while Le Parrain goes in the mix off a strong debut win.
