Race #6  Picks: 4-3-5-6

In this starter allowance race for fillies and mares at 6 furlongs, it’s hard to bet against #4 Dilly Dilly Philly (6-5), who has won four of her last five. She should take command early and looks tough against this group. Her speed figures are much higher than the others and she would have to run a rare clunker to lose. #3 Awesome View (9-2) is in good form, winning two of her last three, and is Dilly Dilly Philly’s main challenger. This filly has early speed and will be challenging for the lead. If the favorite has a bad day this is the most likely winner. This will be the second start for #5 Vitaemi (4-1) since being claimed by Mike Jones, Jr. and coming up from Gulfstream. She showed some speed in her first race at Delaware and could be in the mix. #6 R Averie Lynn (6-1) did not like the turf and is returning to dirt. Won at Delaware back in June and could get in the mix.
