The big money route finals are finally here at digitaldowns.us We have a dozen 3 YO fillies set to battle for 12F for the ultimate prize. The winner will get the lion’s share of 176,000Kc. It was a long journey for these 3 YOs to get the necessary points to make it into the big money finals. Amazing job by the connections to get to this point. Let’s take a closer look at the field.
#1 MEAT WAGON
Photogenic filly has 7 wins in just 10 tries and has been strong since focusing her attention to these longer route distances. Last seen cruising by 2 past high level claimers she’s coming into tonight’s race off an almost two month break. When on the class hike this season she’s had some trouble running with these finishing a distant 3rd and 4th in both efforts. She’s undefeated at 12F, however, and may be able to stick around late from her inside post.
#2 MOON RAKER
Lightly raced this season she’s was facing much softer foes to begin the year, but stepped up in a big way against this group, winning going away at tonight’s 12F distance. Her best races of her career have been at these marathon distances and another similar run has her on the podium.
#3 DREAM SO FAR
Limited sophomore workload seen this runner with just 4 starts until tonight. She wired a nice group of allowance foes in her 3 YO bow, then faced stiffer competition, finishing a good 2nd last out against this group. She has won at 12 panels before as a juvenile, I’m just not sure she’s fast enough for win honors. Looks to be a contender for the minors based on recent form.
#4 SUMTHIN SPECIAL
Has been out only 3 times this season and perhaps been battling some issues staying healthy. She has just the one strong run in the G1 Bouquet stakes, but hasn’t done much in the other 2 starts. Was 4th in this event last season as a juvy, but would be a bit of a surprise if she can better that effort off the sporadic workload.
#5 HIGH MONSTER
Flopped in the Sprint final when drawn wide, but was a much improved 3rd in her last when drawing the fence in the Classic final. I was a bit disappointed in the run last week as I thought she might have been best there, but the track was playing kind to speed all night and she well off the early pace from the start. She was 3rd in the G1 Pink Diamond Stakes at 12F earlier this season and has some impressive 10F races to be a contender in here.
#6 LIGHTS OF LOVE
Winner of this season’s renewal of the 12F Pink Diamond stakes and seems best suited for this marathon distance then most. Her speed figures at this distance have been solid and her recent form has been good. Throw out her poor turf record and she’s run extremely well in most of her starts. Strong win player if she gets a strong to moderate pace setup.
#7 SAFE SHORES
Was an also ran in last weeks Classic finals, having missed the break and never finding her best stride. As mentioned earlier that track was functioning like a highway playing kindly to speed types who carried their speed longer than they normally would. Winless this season and yet to win past 7 panels she has a tall order tonight just to stay the trip. Would prefer on the cutback and against softer.
#8 BULLY GIRL
Won stylishly last out capturing the Classic Championship in dominate wire-to-wire fashion. She’s yet to win past 10F and has been more hit and miss at these route distances for me to really get excited about her win chances. She’s still the best speed in the field and should take them a long way after they pop the latch. I just don’t know how much fuel she’ll have left when they spin into the lane.
Making career start #50 tonight and like many TNT homebreds race early and often against the best. A good 3rd in the Sprint finals and a game 4th in the Classic finals she looks to go back-to-back in this event since capturing the Juvenile Route finals in wire-to-wire fashion. As impressive as that race was, it was over the turf, a surface I think she’s much better over than tonight’s dirt. Still classy enough to win and a strong contender underneath in your gimmicks.
3rd to her stablemate in last season’s Juvy Route final, she’s been solid this season as well winning 3 races and earning just north of 171Kc for her connections. I’m still a little unsure about her ideal distance despite the heavy workload, but I do she’s a solid fit against this group and like the fact she has won at 12 panels before. Solid play underneath.
Facing much softer foes earlier on this season, her veteran conditioner noticed the Champ series running thin of entries and decided to give this runner a shot. He was rewarded with the aggressive placing finishing a solid 3rd two back against these, then followed it up with a big wire-to-wire score going shorter to qualify. She doesn’t strike me as the winner in here, but is just as likely to hit the ticket than the rest of them.
Out run to the quarter pole last week in the Classic finals and like most that were behind early, had trouble closing the gap finishing 9th. She’s had most of her success going shorter or against sprinters, but did win the Champ Route Conso last season as a juvenile in a fast time. Post will be tough, however, I think she’s capable of making another strong run late to compete with these.
