First Race Comments by Gary DiLeo
Yannick Gingras 4 Over 1
Dexter Dunn 6 Over 2
1 BEACH COWGIRL – Two strong efforts to start the year from her, but the last few haven’t been quite as sharp, including last time out when she made a break at the start. Will be looking to rebound in this one.
2 SYLVIA HANOVER – She has just been so impressive this season. Every time it seems like she’s in trouble, she still finds a way to win. Will be an extremely short price here, but she is clearly and obviously the one to beat in this one.
3 FRONT PAGE STORY – Flew home in :26.0 last time out and was a very close second at the line to CHARLESTON. Had to work from an outside post last week and should be closer early in this short field.
4 CAVIART DAVIA – Fifth last time out in just her second start of the year at a massive number in the Tompkins-Geers. Looks to be up against it with this group, but crazy things can happen in short fields.
5 BELLISIMA HANOVER – Kicked in :26.1 and was beaten just two lengths while finishing fifth last time out in the Tompkins-Geers. Will make her third start of the season in this one and will look to build on her last two efforts.
