But the preference however is for the close second early line favorite, Asiya (2-1). Possibly out of her element in the G1 two-turn Cotillion over the quirky Parx surface last out, she's back home in NY where she won both recent starts given today's dynamics. She's worked purposefully for this for Kiaran McLaughlin, whose barn is profitable for 2013, an extraordinary accomplishment given the number of starts and victories.
And for good measure, the Shadwell filly makes her third start off a layup for the barn, a profitable 33% in that scenario.
Taking Asiya to win at 8-5 or greater and key-boxing her in exactas with sharp working favorite Uno Duo and the surface loving Merry Meadow (6-1).
