There’s no question that Charlie’s Wish (7-2) would be a solid choice in Saturday’s Sheer Drama Stakes for Florida-bred fillies and mares. Watch a replay of her most recent start and that will be apparent.
There was some temptation to take the five-pounds pull between ‘Charlie’ and fast working Flakes (4-1) –the runnerup last out–but 4-3/4 lengths is a lot of margin to make up.
Then there’s Adios Charlie (9-5) who’s getting some class relief and blinkers off, suggesting a possible change in tactics but, searching for value, we’ll take a returning fresh face, Rosie’s Halo (4-1).
When last seen, ‘Rosie’ exits a key race producing two next out winners, she’s a three-time winner in Hallandale with three seconds from nine starts.
Further, the time to get a Saffie Joseph trainee is when they are fresh, the trainer boasting a laudable 25% win rate given that scenario.
Taking Rosie’s Halo to win at 7-2 or greater and key-boxing trifectas first and second with the three rivals named above.
