Like Taking Candy From a Kitty
Today's feature is the G3 Herecomesthebride for 3YO fillies going 9 furlongs on the turf and it appears between three fillies, two trained by Todd Pletcher, the other by Christophe Clement.
Clement's filly, Valseuse (10-1), made an impressive debut; winning at a well backed 4-1 while showing lots of class and kick in a strong-rally score. Similarly, the longer uncoupled Pletcher, Seeking Her Glory (6-1) has the all-important win at today's trip and will be handled by Javier Castellano.
But it's early line favorite, Candy Kitty (3-1) that has earned that distinction. She's really improved with maturity in this environment, winning her course debut while showing excellent energy distribution and earning the top last-out performance figure. She has tactical speed, an inside draw and is 2-for-2 beneath Prado.
Taking Candy Kitty to win at 5-2 or greater and key-boxing in exactas with her rivals here.
