By the Shores of Infield Pond

Today's featured John Hettinger for state-bred fillies and mares going nine furlongs boils down to how much you were impressed by Gitchee Goomie's (8-5) victory in the Yaddo up north. If you have the ability, check out the video...Can't win, can't win, can't win, maybe, maybe to never in doubt. Just kidding about that.

This mare was absolutely buried and I still don't know how Alan Garcia extricated himself and the filly but get her to the outside he did and she closed with a whoosh--not quite Winter Memories, but not bad. She likes this course, handles the distance, in short she will be a tough out.

Taking Gitchee Goomie to win, no price restrictions and using Exclusive Scheme (10-1) second and third in the exotics.

Fun in the Sun

Going to Calder for today's co-featured eighth race since we analyzed the last six races from the South Florida track for Saturday in the Equiform Betting Guide (for more information, see

For this exercise we're looking at the listed Stage Door Betty Stakes for fillies and mares going two turns. And, finally, Successful Appeal (3-1) has gotten a needed freshening. After a strong effort behind Awesome Maria this winter at Gulfstream, this filly has been going at it without a break, until today, that is.

She's fits well with these fillies, may have a tactical edge, loves the surface, exits a key race, and has the signature one-mile breeze from the Pleasa barn. Time for making amends beneath Jurado.

Taking Successful Song to win, no price restrictions.

Roman Treasure Gets the Gold

Today's featured ositive Gal Stakes draws a short field and a likely short priced favorite. Roman Treasure (7-5) has been cutting her teeth in graded stakes competition, including the G1Test.

Owning high speed, generally superior figures, an ability to handle a wet track, a desirable outside post and Dominguez woulod make her a tough out. But when you consider that Mike Hushion is an otherworldly 38% efficient in non-graded stakes, it makes the chore of beating her near impossible.

Taking Roman Treasure to win with no price restrictions and using price shot Sentimental Lass (15-1), slower than these but a Belmont surface lover making her second start off a layup, to complete the exacta.

Running Totals: (936) 293-190-132 Total Dollar Return: $2,021.30 [win selections only]
