In today’s eighth from the Oldsmar oval, We Miss Susie (2-1) looks like the type of filly that Late Pick 4 players can hang their hat on.
Chances are that the early line odds will hold on the rallier in a race jam-packed with speed.
Favoritism likely will go to Jolina (5-2), dropping out a state-bred stakes at Hawthorne, the Powerless, a race that produced three next out winners. She’s been working briskly for Anthony Mitchell.
But the Jane Cibelli runner comes from a key race of her own, one boasting two next out winners from three starters when well backed at a higher grade at Gulfstream Park last out.
Third in her only start at Tampa, her penultimate win came beneath Daniel Centeno, who takes the call from Cibelli who owns a 29% strike rate with beaten favorites. She’s started only two horses at the meet, winning with one.
The clincher is the 6-year-old mare is 5-for-7 at today’s trip but 0-for-11 doing anything else. And the inside draw suits her: check out her winning run two back down south when given her chance: Gulfstream Park, DEC 11, Race 8.
We’ re taking We Miss Susie straight at 2-1 or greater and key-boxing exacta with Jolina and Mizzen (10-1), a huge price considering these hot connections.
