Today's featured preliminary allowances for 3-year-old fillies going a mile on turf is interesting, especially since four of the seven entrants easily could win this. We're going to opt for one of the four that might fall through the parimutuel cracks; Fly Again (4-1).
For her to win she'll have to beat impressive maiden breakers Dancing For Glory (3-1, Chad Brown) and Tapicat (5-2, Mott). We will shade Fly Again because Jose Lezcano did, opting for her over Dancing For Glory, and because she's been tested in stakes company, graded and otherwise, and was more than competitive.
Fusaichi Pegasus filly has enough tactical speed to maintain contact and should use her kick effectively over firm ground, going she hasn't gotten that often.
Taking Fly Again to win at 7-2 or greater, key boxing her in exactas with the two rivals mentioned here, and adding sharp Tampa ship-in Sunset Time (5-1) to the exotics mix.
