Race 9

A listed stake race to be run at a distance of seven furlongs. This race seems to have three or four need-the-lead types (including the big favorite) thus the top choice is No. 2 Risky Mandate. She returned from a long break and raced at Churchill where the rust showed at the start. Her closing kick was super impressive and she almost won. No. 6 Joy Epifora has been working out great in the mornings and gets a huge jockey upgrade in Jose Ortiz. No. 5 Indian Pride is very talented and may be able to sit just off the lead and pounce.
