Rainbow 6 players might have to await today’s eighth race to find a viable single but their patience should be rewarded with favorite Join the Dots (6-5) amends for her recent third place finish.
The rust seems apparent as she had good position throughout, ultimately behind a wire winner who took advantage of favorable dynamics for a game score.
Racing in the 3-path throughout, her rally carried her four wide into the lame where she exchanged bumps with a rival but showed enough class to wear that one down for third.
She appeared to be more dull than tired coming off her 70-day break and now should be set to make amends. Check out her GP debut on JAN 7, Race 8 for yourself to determine whether you agree.
Making her second start now as a 4-year-old, the $700K yearling obviously has had her issues but finally gets to run in a regular rotation. She’s had six short breezes at her Payson base to get ready for this and Javier Castellano takes a return call for Shug McGaughey.
We can’t get past her and her early line odds would appear to be a gift if they maintain.
Taking Join the Dots to win and as a Rainbow 6 single, no price restrictions, and will optimize in quinellas with Princess Betty (7-2) from a top layup barn, and Miss Mikaela (5-1), from a barn that’s 30% effective first time off the claim.
