This is the Grade 1 Ballerina sprint for fillies and mares. A large portion of this field are speed oriented types. That’s why we love No. 6 Pink Sands. And as usual we also love that she runs for trainer Shug McGaughey who excels at this distance.
The Pick: Win/Place 6
An allowance optional claiming race on turf to be run at one and three eighths miles. Top choice is No. 9 Reprobate. This horse broke its maiden two races back at 9 furlongs. He raced very wide in his last so we give him a pass. The AM workouts have been impressive according to clockers. No. 8 Tintoretto comes out of a fourth place finish from the San Juan Capistrano. This level should be right and those German Bred horses can run all day. No. 7 Cupid’s Claws makes his first start for trainer Bob Hess.
