Today's featured Grade 3 Las Cienagas on the downhill turf course at Santa Anita, boasts only three sprinting fillies fast enough to win: Indian Flare (8-5), River's Prayer (2-1) and Wild Storm (9-2). Of the three, the early line favorite enjoys significant edges.

Indian Flare has been consistently competitive in better company, she wons the proper stalking style that fits the shape of this sprint, has sufficient recovery time, last having raced on March 3rd, and has faster figures to run back to.

River's Prayer ran a remarkable race to win a recent rapidly run state-bred turf sprint but returns on relatively short rest. Wild Storm earns figures as good as the two favorites but her stretch kick has left her, and bettors, wanting more.

While value will be elusive, we must take Indian Flare as the most probable winner. We'll key her in exacta boxes with the other two speedsters, an exacta ticket with her on top. It is permitted, in fact, encouraged to step out a bit following a win. We received unexpected value on Comely winner Boca Grande at Aqueduct yesterday, $8.00, who keyed a trifecta that returned a worthy $311.
