The $200,000 Bay Shore Stakes (G3) is for 3-year-olds sprinting 7 furlongs on the main track. J J's Lucky Train was sent off as the 2-1 favorite in the field of 7 off his win in the Miracle Wood Stakes at Laurel, over 5-2 second choice Vengeful Wildcat, third in the Fred Capossela last out, and 5-1 third choice Justin Phillip, 8th in the Risen Star (G2) at Fair Grounds.

Smoke It Right battled for the lead with Vengeful Wildcat down the backstretch and around the turn through fractions of 22.64 and 46.17, with Justin Phillip and Royal Currier stalking them third and fourth. Into the stretch, Vengeful Wildcat opened up a short lead through 3/4 in 1:09.98, but J J's Lucky Train, fifth early, rallied the length of the stretch to get up by a neck in 1:22.54. It was another 1 1/2 lengths back to Justin Phillip third.
