Welcome to Winter
Today's Big A feature on the inner, winter track is a secondary allowances for fillies and mares 3 & up going a two-turn 1-1/16 miles.
With only six horses, it nevertheless has brought with it a horse for course of a layup, class droppers, and sprint stretch-outs with suitable pedigrees.
The most interesting filly to us is Mr Hall's Opus (5-2) who does get class relief dropping from recent overnight stakes, owns a two-turn win where she overcame trouble to do so, and is stretching from sprints to routes, a 24% scenario for the Breen barn. She owns tactical speed which should give new rider Irad Ortiz some options once the gate opens.
Taking Mr Hall's Opus to win, no price restrictions, and boxing the exacta with Mott stretch-out My Place (3-1), owning enough bottom-side pedigree to appreciate the added ground.
