Often makes her U.S. debut here off a fifth place finish in her debut last October at the Curragh in a 23 horse field, sent off at 6-1 in the betting. She lands with the Motion barn that is 32% winners (with a +ROI) with runners making their first start state side. She has a long winded pedigree, by Galileo out of the stakes winner Mariah’s Storm ($724,895) who has dropped seven turf winners and a couple of stakes winners including Giant’s Causeway ($3 million).
Tiztalented made a mild late run to finish fourth last out in her third career start and looks as if she wants some extra ground. She is by Tiznow out of the stakes winner Untouched Talent ($243,550) who has dropped three winners including Grade 1 winner Bodemeister ($1.3 million).
WIN: #10 to win at 2-1 or better.
EX: 6,10 / 2,3,6,10
