Undefeated Daring Dancer (9-5) has already won a Grade 3, Keeneland's Appalachian and was scratched recently when a turf stakes was taken off the grass on a Triple Crown undercard. She will be a very tough out.
But we're taking any value offered on Recepta (7-2). A winner of the Chelsea Flower in her turf debut at 2, winning impressively from post 12 going a mile, she made a bold mid-race move in her season's debut behind the favorite but tired from the trip and perhaps needing a race.
She will benefit from her return, is reuniting with winning partner Junior Alvarado, and is bred for added distance, from a mare whose two foals were both stakes winners. First-time Lasix is another plus.
Taking Recepta to win at 5-2 or greater, an exacta box with the undefeated favorite, and adding recent winner Party Now (4-1), switching to Johnny, and well regarded import Minorette (8-1), the favorite in her U. S. debut, finishing third to Party Now, a fast working Lawn Party (8-1).
