 Wire Z Wire  Diablo Diablo  Alvarado J      12/1 122

Has been away from the race since May when she chuck an absolute dud of a race at PEN.  That was coming off of a graded win at KEE, so I’m just not sure what happened in that race.  She shows a stead string of morning gallops getting ready for today, but I’m just not sure what to expect – perhaps it’s time to watch one.

Nice win last out in a stakes at AP and that was outside of the LA-bred races she had been going after.  Two stakes wins from seven starts this season, so you know she has a bit of ability.  They move her over to the turf course, which will be her first try on the lawn.  She doesn’t even show a gallop over the green stuff, so she’s a bit of a question mark.

 Rose Of Glamorgan  Blushing Meadows  Ortiz I Jr      3/1 122

Classy filly threw a dud last out when tenth in the BEL Oaks (GI) but she is that type of a horse – she was second before that in Grade I company, so she certainly has ability, but she usually is either right there or she goes on back to the barn at the top of the lane.  I expect a good effort here.

 Etoile  Mb Stables  Ortiz J L        5/1 122

Undefeated this season up until that second place finish last out while facing graded horses again.  More of the black-types here, but you certainly have to give her a serious look off of those wins – all on the grass, all at a mile or today’s distance – you get the idea… she can run a bit.

 Caricature Flame  TwinTowersRacing  Rosario J     7/1 122

Has been third three times since being purchased – that was a black type at CD last out, and she’s been on soggy grass in her last two.  She’s a big filly and certainly knows how to close in the late stages and I think she could be rolling late here, perhaps to get a small share of the pie.
