It’s Me Favorite

Today's feature Grade 2 Honorable Miss featuring some of the fastest fillies on the legs on the East Coast, has drawn a diverse and competitive field. But we've been in love with It's Me Mom (7-2) since the first time we saw her win in South Florida last winter. And now you should, too.

Any filly that can win seven of her 11 starts at today's 6-furlong trip is worthy of that. So are her Equiform energy figures which are consistently fast and hold an edge over the group. But the best part is that she's a bullet at the gate and trainer Lynne Scace said she's going to the front and run with her at your peril. To help insure that lead; the filly worked a half mile from the gate in :44 4/5.

Taking It's Me Mom to win at 5-2 or greater and key boxing her first and second with top figure ship-in Winning Image (5-1), and two other 6-furlong specialists, Beat the Blues (8-1) and Roman Treasure (10-1).

Running Totals: (1129) 347-219-169 Total Dollar Return: $2,384.40 [win selections only] {Thursday Results Not Included}

That’s Perfect

There are seven horses in today's Birdstone overnight stakes for older horses going nine furlongs but they're only representing four barns as Todd Pletcher entered three uncoupled mates and Rick Dutrow entered two.

While it seems that Pleatcher has this race surrounded, both literally and figuratively, it's one of Dutrow's, Isn't He Perfect (7-2) that inspires the most confidence. Almost any of the seven can win, their performance figures virtually the same on their best game. But Isn't He Perfect appears the most reliable and has enough tactical speed to get early position, allowing Ramon to tuck in, and enough kick to complete the deal.

Taking Isn't He Perfect to win at 5-2 or greater and boxing him in the exacta with recent Bruce Brown claim, Pleasant Prince (15-1).
