Diva Seeks Fame and Fortune in Big Apple
Today's featured Belle Cherie overnight stakes going as the 8th race has 3-5 early line choice Wedding Toast in the spotlight, and why not? Add first Lasix and win by 14 lengths, going to the front and improving position. In doing so, however, she had an easy trip to defeat her four rivals.
We're taking a chance against and throwing deep with a Maryland shipper.
There likely will be a livelier pace today as Johnny V. plays cat and mouse with Javier on the public choice. We certainly hope so as that would set the table nicely for Diva Spirit (20-1). In winning her Delaware finale by open lengths, she finished as strongly--if not more so--than several of the shorter priced entrants here.
Low profile Abougazale doing good work with limited chances (profitable 25% on the year) and his filly owns enough early speed to stay in the game early beneath Prado.
Taking Diva Spirit to win at 10-1 or greater and key boxing in exactas with the favorite and JV's mount, Sheer Drama (7-2)
