NM Classic Lassie
ZIA Race #3 6f Dirt Stake
$145.000 For Fillies Two Years Old Foaled In NM.
1 French Girlfriend T Boy Racing Arrieta F
She has been concentrating on the state bred scene and has been pretty consistent. Fourth in the Rio Grande Senorita Futurity she never really looked good enough that day and whilst she is an honest sort she ay find one or two too good.
2 Digital Age Axeman Hebert T J
The winner of two, both on turf, she is good enough on dirt but may be a step behind one or two. She gets the great draw and a jockey in form so she must be considered for a place.
3 Nebraska Sunrise Greeko Holdem Gomez E P After a good enough debut on dirt she has been on the turf since and won her maiden nicely last time out on the grass. Gets a great draw but the question mark will be the surface.
4 Sleipnir Zoeller Ochoa J
The winner of two at lower level, she knows how to win but doesnt look up to this level.
5 Sweet Command Angelos Stable Eikleberry R
Made all to win a cheap maiden claimer last time, her work times say she is better than that so she may turn out to be a good claim for her new owner.
6 She Done Left Me T Boy Racing Juarez A J
Another from the stable who has been around the state bred circuit her stable companion gets the better draw and may be the better chance.
7 Pakistan Star John Henry Chirinos R
Maybe the class factor in the race but has to carry a penalty and cope with a wide draw. She was behind Romantic Boot in the Rio Grande one back and may struggle to turn the tables.
8 Romantic Boot Smokey Stover Walcott R W
An easy maiden winner she ran well in the Rio Grande finishing second and ahead of a few of the best chances in this race. The car park draw will make it tough but she should start favorite.
On form its between the wide two Pakinstan Star and Romantic Boot but the wide draws make it a lottery and its hard to be confident. Outside those two French Girlfriend and Sweet Command may get some action.
