Edisa (5-2), how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
First, based on the Thoro-Graph performance figures scale, she’s as fast, if not faster, than any of her rivals in this lineup. Further, her numbers are forward, having never taken a backward step.
Spacing of 42 days is perfect. It’s the look of a horse that has been pointed to one specific assignment. And why not when shooting for the winner’s share of three-quarters of a million dollars–American?
Class-wise, she was second in her most recent starts over there, both being graded events. Eleven furlongs will not be an issue since she was second two starts back going a mile and a half.
And did we mention that Flavien Prat is shipping East for the riding assignment?
At 5-2 early odds, she looms the probable ante post favorite. As for our making a win bet, that will depend on what tale the tote is telling me.
We’ll go on record with her to win and will key-box exactas with Wonderment (7-2), a Group 1 winner at 2, and the versatile Art of Almost (5-1), third in both recent graded starts, with Roger Attfield reaching out for Javier Castellano.
