Interesting feature to begin the summer racing season and kick off the holiday weekend, a mile event for state-bred fillies and mares that has drawn a field of eight.
If those, three have the best credentials. Let’s Be Honest (5-2) has earned the best figures on the Thoro Graph, her best at today’s trip.
She won her last, carrying this impost, is nicely positioned and makes her first start for Bobby Dibona, profitable in his career with sprint to route stretch-outs.
Emirates Affair (9-2) makes her second start off the Peter Walder claim, a profitable scenario for a barn that’s also 20% effective with blinkers off, ad has been freshened for this. Edgard Zayas has the call.
But we’re going for the price on Pacific Princess (8-1) for owner/breeder/trainer Roger Laurin.
Four-year-old filly made her season’s debut sprinting in early May. Her best runs have come at today’s trip, handles any footing and Laurin is profitable in several categories, including spacing, stretch-outs and routes in general.
And she did her best racing at this time of year at 3. She suits the conditions nicely and should benefit from her comebacker and has been training with purpose for this.
Check out her run at today’s distance from last season: Gulfstream Park, JUNE 18, Race 6. Compromised at the break, she finished up courageously.
Taking Pacific Princes to win at 5-1 or greater and quinellas her two rivals named above.
