  • No.8 Daisysgonnamakeit   3-1

Race Analysis

Darley Bay set the early fractions and could not finish last out, weakening to finish third over a racing strip that was not kind to speed that day. The winner Mess in a Dress came out of the race to beat open $25,000 claimers in her next outing on March 24. Our top pick was claimed out of her last outing by the Levine barn that is 22% winners first off the claim. The mare has been popular at the claim box, taken the last four times she showed up tagged. The new barn protects her here and her 6-1 morning line looks fair enough to give her a good look.
Lily Lyn was the beaten chalk last out. She came with a good four wide bid and was beaten just a nose for the top spot off  a two month break. The mare owns a solid pace profile throughout and she has a win and a second in her two trips over the Big A main track.

WIN: No.3 to win at 7-2 or better.
EXACTA: 3,4 / 2,3,4,8
TRIFECTA: 3,4 / 2,3,4,8 / 1,2,3,4,8
