Having a Fit in Sheepshead Bay

Today's feature is the G2 Sheepshead Bay for fillies and mares going 11 furlongs and while the field will scratch down--either to removal of Main Track Only, or turf horses if the marathon comes off the grass, is wide open and could offer value since no clear cut favorite is defined.

We're interested in Fitful Skies (7-2) because she never got a clear run at any point in the G1 Jenny Wiley until it was far too late. Further, that race was too short for her best efforts and today she gets that needed added distance and the benefit of some cut in the ground.

Taking Fitful Skies to win at 5-2 or great and key boxing her in exactas with the aggressively placed but sharp Riposte (3-1) and the fast closing third finisher in the Jenny Wiley, Abaco (5-2)

Amount Wagered: $3,064 [to win only]
