This Is No Game for the Riskaverse
Today's feature is the Riskaverse Stakes for 3YO going one mile on turf. Uncharacteristically, it's a race that has an abundance of speed that should set the table for the late running Unbelievable Dream (8-1).
When last seen she was finishing evenly in the Auntie Mame, her course debut. Today, she turns back to her optimal distance (3-for-3) and owns the co-fastest figures. She's worked twice since her latest and figures to get plenty of pace up front from the likes of Midnight Watch. Cornelio Velasquez takes a return call.
Taking Unbelievable Dream to win at 5-1 or greater and key boxing in multiple pools with equally strong finishing Bella Castani (7-2) and the uncoupled pair from Steve Asmussen; Promise Me More (8-1), making first start for this barn, and Sister Ginger (3-1), seeking her fourth straight and a multiple winner at this trip.
