Wild Chatter (#7) or Candida (#10) could certainly win this race. They performed well at this level last time, but both had relatively good trips. Wild Chatter, in particular, had no excuse to lose and actually got herself beaten by wandering around in the stretch after making the lead. We believe there are some other more interesting players that should go off at slightly higher prices.
The Pace Projector is predicting that Miss Aja Brown (#9) will be racing on a clear early lead in a situation favoring the frontrunner. She was forced to rate last time after an awkward start, but she came through along the rail professionally. The two horses that finished just behind her both came back to run improved races in their subsequent starts.
She’ll be on our tickets, but our top pick is INDYGITA (#4).
This filly was facing subtly tougher competition at Gulfstream this winter. She ran well two back after getting shuffled out early in the race, and last time she lost to a filly that has gone on to win two more times, most recently taking down a stakes. Indygita is in good form, and her tactical speed should have her placed close to the pace.
