More Than a Fair Weather Friend
Today's Big A feature, going as the 3rd race, is a preliminary allowances/optional claimer featuring two speed types that should dominate the 7-furlong sprint for juvenile fillies.
There's not much to choose between Summertime Friend (9-5) and Winekeeper (2-1). The latter is a last-out David Jacobson claim, a profitable scenario, especially when coupled with this type of spacing.
The former, meanwhile, is an expensive purchase with a classy pedigree that is bred for today's added distance and was visually impressive winning her only start, even if it came on Belmont's speed friendly fall surface.
Taking Summertime Friend to win, no price restrictions, an exacta box with Winekeeper, adding Storm Swept to the exotics mix.
