The face features a worthy favorite, Tall Poppi (3-5). He’s never taken a backward step in four lifetime starts and is, by definition, the fast horse in the race on performance figures. He was most recently second in the Bongard and Sleepy Hollow behind the streaking Trinity Magic. But at very short odds, he seems overpriced.
Not so Lookin At Her, at a value laden 8-1. After earning an excellent sprint figure two starts back, he raced rushed off his feet in last, a new lifetime pace top, and is expected to move forward coming back at the same sprint distance. His natural speed will put him in the game early and he could break this open on turn. At anything near early line odds, it’s worth finding out.
Taking Lookin At Her to win at 5-1 or greater and an exacta box with Tall Poppi.
