As usual, the team made an astute claim in Southern California, watched it improve for Bill Spawr, then shipped it East where Stettler was a game second in her good figure winter-track debut.
But what really impressed was the way she swept to the lead in a quick final quarter-mile, appearing to have something left at the finish. Sometimes, you play the hand you’re dealt.
Taking Stettler to win at 8-5 or greater and keying her first and second in the trifecta with Mikeslittlegirl (8-1), Casino Key (4-1) and Yankee Victoria (5-2).
