Lots of good news/bad news angles at Laurel Park Thursday afternoon. Of the two best races carded, there’s one on the grass, but if the weather handicappers are right, maybe not?
This leaves us with a six-horse allowance sprint and we’ll err on the side of common sense.
The good news is we have two chances to beat the favorite but the most solid, Quiet Imagination (3-1), has twice as many placing than wins in her young career. The good news is all those exacta finishes came at today’s trip.
And we’ll go that way for other reasons, such as reunited with Trevor McCarthy, in the boot for the win two back, trainer Tim Wooley is 31% profitable with his beaten favorites and with a good amount of speed and stalkers signed on, this filly can kick.
The Imagining 3-year-old had a very useful lung opener at her Fair Hill base and should make the last run a winning one.
Taking Quiet Imagination to win at 5-2 or greater, an exacta box with forward looking Margie’s Heaven (4-1) and will use Coconut Cake (9-5) to fill out the trifecta.
