And now for something completely different. We've had a week to think about the re-scheduled Pentelis Stakes and have decided not to take a short price. To the contrary, we're taking Carlina (15-1).

Nicely drawn outside in a small field, Garry Gullo trainee can use her early lick to advantage and owns enough of an Equiform figure to compete here on her best go. While the Pletcher and Brown fillies are the logical suspects, am very interested to see the latest incarnation of a South American wonder horse. Actually I know very little about My Wandy's Girl, making her U.S. debut for Hushion and Dominguez.

What I do know is that her (17) 13-2-1 career slate merits mucho respect.

Taking Carlina to win at 10-1 or greater and an exacta box with the import.
