Anyway, today’s feature is for state-bred turf fillies, 3-year-olds & up, is at seven furlongs. The secondary condition could be for horses that have tended to disappoint.
That’s why recent graduate Doree Daze, an impressive maiden breaker last time out, is likely to be the favorite and most probable winner. But at 3-1 on the early line, and probably lower at post time while moving up in class and distance, we’ll take a pass.
Indeed, we believe that the oft disappointing Mesa Girl (7-2) has found a field she can handle. She been racing competitively with open claimers and now tries New York limited allowance types. Her figures are improving and this three-year-old only figures to develop further.
There appears to be sufficient speed signed on to insure at least an honest pace and she has plenty of conditioning turning back from recent routes. Samyn on the Green is still a buy-word in turf events and Jean-Luc remains adept at timing those late rallies purposefully. We think the price will be fair.
Taking Mesa Girl to win at early odds of 7-2 or greater and keying her first and second in exactas, trifectas and Dime Supers with Doree Daze, Who Is Lady (7-2), Cats A Glitter (8-1) and mega-price shot Mercy’s Delight (50-1).
