The Princess Looks to Repeat over Big Sandy

Getting an early start on the weekend, it’s an interesting feature despite the relatively small field.

Ullapool (8-5) is a deserving favorite off her last race, in which she earned an Equiform figure that towers over this group. But that seems problematical considering she has regressed off big efforts before.

That’s what makes Princess Mara (4-1) an intriguing play. Unlike the favorite, she has not bounced off efforts in the past.

Dale Romans trainee has a good figures to return to, albeit on turf, and is likely to run well on this course again having worked very nicely, 11th fastest of 90 in her peer group that week at Belmont.

Taking Princess Mara to win at 3-1 or greater and key boxing her first and second in exotics with the favorite, sharp working Bid A Moon (5-1) and Hard Life (7-2), going second off the layoff for Rick Dutrow.

Running Totals: (1097) 339-212-165 Total Dollar Return: $2,328.30 [win selections only]
