Today's Big A feature, the Pearl City for 3YO which have never won a stakes of any kind, has drawn only five entrants, one of which appearing to have been hustled.

The early line favorite, off her recent company lines, is Team Mott/Rosario's Uno Duo. But at 3-5? Why? Her figures to dot tower over her rivals and her best form is a 7 furlongs, not today's six. Just can't go there.

The best of the remainder appears to be Miss Mischief (4-1), adding blinkers in first start for new trainer Asmussen. And, unlike the favorite, she's 2-for-2 at today's trip. Tactical speed and kick, she's nicely positioned outside beneath Castellano.

Taking Miss Mischief to win at 5-2 or greater and an exacta box with the favorite.
