In today's feature preliminary allowances/optional claimer, Awesome Vow (5-2) has a lot going for her. She exits a key race, likes the trip, worked 2nd best of 30 peers during the week and Jorge Navarro will tighten the girth.

But we're interested in Successful Luck (6-1) who demonstrated excellent energy distribution to win her debut, racing mid-pack off moderate fractions but exploding home for the win after being angled wide by Joe Rocco, who takes the return call.

Obviously, the delayed 4YO raises concerns but she obviously loves the Hallandale surface and has enough bottom-side pedigree for the added distance. The price should be fair, too.

Taking Successful Luck to win at 4-1 or greater and key-boxing in exactas with Awesome Vow and Malibu Mudslide, pole sitting with Rosario and going first time off Marty Wolfson's claim (28%).
