The Kentucky Downs Ladies Sprint to be run at six- and one-half furlongs. Top choice is No. 7 Cariba. She had a great summer with a win both at Belmont and Saratoga. She’ll need her best as this is a step up in class but her sheet pattern suggests that it shouldn’t be a problem. There’s been ample time (42 days) for her to prepare for this. No. 9 Into Mystic has stakes experience and the running style to sit off the lead. No. 8 Got Stormy is the classy veteran who’ll likely be close to even money. I think with the cut back in distance and the quirkiness of this track, it’s no lock for her today.
