Ballerina Field Under Review

There aren't many racetrack that can feature a Grade 1 stakes on a Friday but here we are at the Spa, and the 7 furlong sprint for fillies and mares is never short on speed. That's what will make Book Review so tough.

Baffert filly with Bejarano in for the ride has big-finish capability, fitting today's dynamic very well. She's a Grade 1 winner at the distance, winning the LaBrea this winter at SA, won here last year and is a very worthy 5-for-6 lifetime at the trip.

No choice but to take Book Review to win, no price restrictions, and boxing her in the exacta with key race Princess Rooney winner Starship Truffles (6-1).
