Wilkes/Hernandez Team Can Sneak Up on this Group

Today's Spa feature to close out Week 4 of the 2014 season is the Summer Colony overnight stakes for fillies and mares going 9 furlongs on the main track.

It's hard to know where the early pace is coming from with any certitude but we do link the idea that Ambusher (4-1) is coming into this off a new pace top and is getting class relief dropping from graded stakes. The spacing is good give his recent schedule and Brian Hernandez Jr. is taking a return call.

Taking Ambusher to win at 3-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with Zucchini Flower (7-2), from very live conne3ctions, and Natalie Victoria (9-5), who should benefit from recent return from a layoff.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1593

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 485-308-245

Amount Wagered: $3,186 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,276.00

Profit to Date: $90.00
