There is not much speed entered in this race, which may lead some to upgrade the chances of a stretching-out sprinter like Froyo Star. However, David Jacobson does not have the strongest numbers with horses stretching out for the first time, so we’re inclined to lean towards those that are proven at the distance.
Say Cin Cin (#4) ran one of the fastest recent races when making a late bid to finish third behind the highly regarded Crafted in a race against males. She must be used, but her lack of speed may work against her, and she’s had more chances than the rest.
Both halves of the entry, Carella (#1) and Wembley (#1A), have struggled with consistency but have run races on occasion that would make them formidable against this group. However, our top pick is a different three-year-old.
SHE’S SO FINE (#7) was very green in her debut, as she bore out badly into the clubhouse turn before making a wide, sustained run around the far turn. She was even trying to lug in down the stretch but still finished well. Next time out, she was overmatched against stakes company, but now she lands in a more realistic spot and we believe she can build on her debut. Mike Maker gets a solid 85 trainer rating with horses making their third career starts, and this filly receives a rider upgrade to Jose Ortiz. She would offer value at or above odds of 9/2.
