Top or bottom? Those are the choices in Friday’s Hallandale feature. Starship Aurora (7-2) just missed at the hybrid 6-1/2 furlong distance, her dirt debut after five races on either turf or the All-Weather.
Since her last she’s been working on schedule for Steve Dwoskin and Leonel Reyes takes the return call on the filly who was probably best last time, undone at headstretch before roaring home late.
However, it’s highly likely that Jose Pinchin has something to prove as he takes over the training of Atomically (6-5) after having spent the summer in the Todd Pletcher shed.
Atomically won two races for this barn to begin her career and she returns here for her first start since April 1.
Getting class relief dropping out of graded stakes, she’s worked every week since late July for her return and gets first Lasix for her return. Perfectly spotted here.
Taking Atomically to win, no price restrictions, and an exacta box with Starship Aurora.
