Of the eight entered, weíre taking a closer look at four of them, from the inside, out, Donít Mind Me (2-1), Tishmeister (6-1), Laurentide Ice (7-2) and Karakorum Elektra (10-1).
Donít Mind Me is the favorite, understandably. She broke her debut at two on the Saratoga turf and never has taken a backward step on performance figures. She is, by definition, the second fastest filly in here, she hails from a white hot Galluscio barn and picks up Ramon Dominguez. She has pedigree on both sides suited to todayís stretchout. Her early line odds are a bit short, however.
Tishmeister is the fastest filly and has the benefit of a recent race over this course. After her maiden breaker two back, she set the pace but settled for second on July 26. The odds are more than fair. The problems are that her speedy style is anti-profile and has that lone win but five seconds in 14 career tries. JJ Castellano suits her nicely.
Laurentide Ice has better figures on dirt but her grass debut was OK, considering she broke from the 10 post in a field of 10 and raced very wide off a hungry pace in that turf debut. Interestingly, the hot Kent Desormeaux chooses her over the early line favorite. On all counts that makes her interesting.
Karakorum Elektra was sharpened for speed in a recent turf sprint but has come from off the pace successfully going long, breaking her maiden May 3rd. She figures to benefit from her most recent start.
Taking Laurentide Ice to win at 5-2 or greater and keying her in three trifecta positions with the other three fillies.
