The Busher (P1) [KYO]
AQU Race #4 1m Dirt Stake
Purse $250.000 (plus up to $35.000 for NY-breds) For Fillies Three Years Old.
1 Dream Woman Mb Stables Court J K
With over a third of the runners the stable has a better chance than most but these three are definitely among the lesser or atleast more hidden lights than some of the stables stars. This one gets a decent draw for this and has been impressive in her first two starts of the year winning both and looking a real up and comer. She may have gone down the classes to win her last but she won with plenty in hand. Her works suggest she has a little find with some but she is in the right ballpark and will be a contender for sure.
2 Local Glitter D J C Racing Stables DeCarlo C P
A little disappointing after a good allowance win in September last year she gets the much sought after two box today so may have a chance to get back to winning ways. The mile is my biggest fear for her as she seems much quicker both in works and races over shorter trips but the draw will certainly help with that and you cannot rule her out.
3 Miss Steel Mazula Nakamura Stables Alvarado J
Another that has looked a little more of a sprinter than a router she won an optional claimer over a mile but then looked a little weak in the finish when upped in grade over the same trip. The draw gives her a chance and the trainer is in great form so once again you cant rule her out.
4 Sister Dearest Rampage Stable Rosario J
Only four starts for the one win she has looked pretty solid in her races but failed in her last start when upped to this level. Like so many at this time of year she is being tested but she may once again come up a little short.
5 Chance Of A Lifetime Fractious Franco M
Disappointing from a wide gate last time the race engine beat her that day but she gets a better chance today to take a sit and may be in witha fair chance. Her fifth in the grade one Starlet certainly looks like decent form for a race like this but i like a few others who may be better suited by race conditions.
6 Starship Viking Mb Stables Davis D
The second stable runner she is very similar to the other two in that she has won well at overnight level but needs to prove something today. In contrast to most of the runners she looks like a thorough router and was very close to winning the Suncoast Stakes last time after coming with a strong late run. The draw is tricky but that seems to be the only thing against her.
7 Data Overload Mb Stables Espinoza V
The winner of two from four she has won two little races at TAM but the track class seems to mean very little and she looks to have every chance if the race engine is easy on her from a wide draw. She looked to appreciate the mile last time and whilst i cant give her as good a chance as Starship Viking she certainly isnt out of it.
8 Sin City Rainbow Aer Stables Lanerie C J
Claimed for just $8.000 she has since worked as fast as anything in the field, such is racing at HRP. An on pace runner the draw will either send her off too quick or do her a favor and give her a soft lead, either way she has a sound chance on those works.
If Sin City Rainbow gets a few favors from the race engine she could be the biggest danger to the Mb Stables trio with probably Starship Viking the best of them and the likely winner.
