When it comes to early speed, there's notning like the variety on display in SoCal and in today's local feature, a secondary allowances/optional claiming at the hybrid distance of 6 1/2 furlongs, that mantle will be carried bya super sharp ship-in Lindz Winz (2-1).

After her most recent start, a sharp victory at this distance at Santa Anita, she returned in only 13 days to work a bullet half-mile for traner Barry Abrams, a sign of excellent conditiion after such as a taxing prior effort, especially for a filly.

Now she returns in the Rick Dutrow barn and benefits from a ground saving draw and switch to Ramon Dominguez, both factors suiting her stalking style perfectly. The stars appear aligned for a winning local debut for an improving 4-year-old flyer.

We're taking Lindz Winz to win with no price restrictions, boxing her in the exacta with the equally sharp Joonbi (4-1).
