Sometimes it looks too easy to resist. The last time Pianist (2-1) was in the entries it was an out of town stakes against a pretty salty group of fillies but was scratched awaiting the proper spot. This one has her name all over it.

First of all, her next loss at today's mile trip will be her first in four lifetime runs at the distance. Indeed all her career wins have come at this trip. Javier Castellano really gets along well with her and the generous spacing--about 11 weeks fresh--suits her perfectly. She's been training with purpose for Chad Brown at her Palm Meadows base.

Taking Pianist to win, no price restrictions, and keying her in exactas with sharp course winner Warm Huge (3-1) and price shot Alaura Michelle (10-1), exiting a key race.
