Heaven Can’t Wait

Today's Spa feature is the Smart N' Fancy Stakes for fillies and mares sprinting 5-1/2 furlongs on turf and it's a beauty, typically contentious given the conditions. We'll take an value offered on Stars Above Me (6-1).

Motion filly was impressive taking her U.S. debut, altering course and bursting through a narrow opening on the fence showing excellent turn of foot inside the final sixteenth. We're banking on a similar performance vs. some formidable opposition here.

Betting Stars Above Me to win at 3-1 or greater, key-boxing exactas with To My Valentine (4-1) and Free As A Bird (5-2), adding Madame Giry (5-1), Quay (8-1) and Goldstryke Glory (12-1) to the super-exotics mix.
