My Dinah is marching forward incrementally and should continue to go well here. While she prefers a target, she might hold a pace edge in this two-turner and certainly has enough pedigree for the added ground, as most John Hettinger-bred horses do. Regular rider Jose Espinosa rides her back for Kathleen Feron.
Point Me To It has improved off the recent Gary Contessa claim and this might be the spot he had in mind when he haltered her on October 9. While the top half of the pedigree is challenged in the routing department, Contessa is profitable when he goes long off two prior sprints. The rail and tactical speed at this trip won’t hurt.
If only Here Comes Rita were a bit quicker on performance figures and was better positioned than the outside slip at this distance. The good news, however, is that she has come into her own as she’s won three of her last four, is bred both sides for the distance and is poised to make a forward move. That and her early line odds.
But we’re taking My Dinah to win, no price restrictions, and keying her first and second in exactas and trifectas with her rivals here.
