Today’s feature is the Soft Morning Stakes restricted to New York bred fillies and mares and appears to be a two-horse battle between the two favorites, the prolific By The Light (8-5) and the sharp invader, Cammy’s Choice (2-1). And if figures are the measure--which they are--the linemaker may have the wrong favorite listed here.

We won’t knock the favorite, considering her (11) 7-3-0 slate, her connections--Dutrow and Richard Migliore--and her style. A mid-race stalker with a favorable outside draw, she figures to get a closing jump on Cammy’s Choice when time comes to run down the speed, of which there is plenty here.

But Cammy’s Choice has significantly faster final figures, hails from a going concern, with trainer Eddie Lehman, who’s posted a lofty 38 percent strike rate and huge ROI figures. She’s had sufficient recovery time since both recent wins following the barn change and her Pha. Park-based rider ships up the turnpike for the ride. We’re taking her to run down the early favorite.

Backing Cammy’s Choice to win at 3-2 or greater and a cold exacta with By The Light.
