RACING CANCELED FOR SECOND STRAIGHT DAY DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER.
We don’t know if Friday’s eighth race will remain on the turf but even if it should be shifted to Tapeta Track, Rigby (9-2) seems well suited to either surface.
While she likely will be a pace factor coming out of sprints she also owns enough versatility to work out a trip with her tactical speed and patient, quiet handling from Chantal Sutherland.
Claimed last out by Pedro Garcia she returns for an outfit that’s a profitable 19% effective first time off the claim and the filly will appreciate the 7-week freshening.
We look for Sutherland to play it off the break, assuming a fair start, and her mid-gate position she give her rider options. Her Thoro-Graph figures are good and, of greater import, consistent given any scenario.
Taking Rigby to win at 7-2 or greater and boxing an exacta with Musical Romance (5-1), getting class relief in search of her proper present level.
