Today’s weather forecast is a bit iffy but we will stay with a turf theme and the disclaimer at the top is should the race be rescheduled to the main track, Main-Track-Only and recent Scott Lake claim, Trunk of Money (15-1).
Today’s eighth race, a 5-1/2 furlong turf sprint for fillies and mares 3 & up, is basically a three-filly battle among the favorites.
Classy Introduced (5-2), a second-off-the-claim Beantown Baby (3-1), and a returning turn-back with promising turf form, Candy Money (4-1) are most likely to be successful. It’s ‘Beantown’ that looks most interesting…
Interesting that she was claimed in her season’s debut coming off an extended layup and swooped the group, doing it so impressively that she was 1-5 despite the class rise in her next start in which she finished a very game second in a troubled trip.
The group that claimed her is not in the claiming game, so they must have seen something they liked from her turf win while making her grass debut. Check out her race vs. winners at Tampa this winter on the Laurel Live Video, JAN 11, RACE 10.
Beantown Baby has been working for this at her Fair Hill base since mid-April for Arnaud Delacour, who has given the assignment to Trevor McCarthy. Nicely posted, she should be well positioned throughout and ready to pounce.
Taking Beantown Baby to win, at 5-2 or greater, and key-boxing exactas with the two fillies named above.
