What today’s feature in Hallandale lacks in field size it more than makes up for hit in potential overlays. We believe that Eddie and Laurie Plesa’s Oh Darlin (8-1) is one those fillies.
Having her speed blunted in an attempt to go long in a Florida-bred stakes two back, her cause was not helped last time when she ran back on 12 days rest after that enervating run.
And a good one it was, finishing second to a nice Army Mule prospect. Check it out and see if you agree: Gulfstream Park, NOV 19, Race 7.
She doesn’t compete with some of her rivals here on the Thor-Graph scale but there are reasons, to believe she ready for a career best in this spot.
Another positive is the switch to Paco and they break from the side. Expecting good trip assuming a clean break.
Taking Oh Darlin to win at 4-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with Clay Soldier (4-1) and Hoax (5-2) Will use Alternate Rock (3-1) in trifecta mix.
