- Mid-Atlantic Three Stars: March 20Your five-minute read to catch up on all the Mid-Atlantic racing action you may have missed over the weekend…
In her last outing, #4 Lucylou Who (3-1) went straight to the front and romped home six clear of the rest. A repeat of that feels like a distinct possibility for the Mike Geralis trainee, who’s won five of nine starts… #6 Likely Choice (6-1) showed late interest last out at Laurel Park, rallying into the show spot. That was back in November, but trainer Ronney Brown wins at a 17% clip off similar layoffs. This one’s last work was solid, and she may catch somewhat easier company here than she has for most of her career… That was a clunker last out for #1 Elite Speed (12-1), but her prior form would compete with these, and at generous odds we’re inclined to give her another crack…
Top choice #8 College Kid (6-1) has been in just middling form, but she makes her third start off a two-month break here, so a move forward is not out of the question. She’s a speedy sort and drawn outside the other speed players, and if she can get back to the form that saw her compete effectively in state-bred stakes company in the fall, she could be right there at a square price tonight… #3 Sizzling Hot (8-1) graduated last time out in her first try over the strip. She’ll be looking for a stalk-and-pounce type of trip… Leading trainer Anthony Farrior and leading rider Arnaldo Bocachica are winning at a 37% clip at the meet, which means you don’t want to ignore #4 Speak Your Mind (3-1). The question facing her is whether she’ll be able to get to the front in this one-turn dash; her races when she hasn’t made the lead early have not been good… Improved effort in last from #1 Little Bit of That (10-1), whose form last spring would make her a strong favorite here…
5th.”Lucyloo Who”sure can do
but don’t be hasty and let”Marvella Nasty”get by you.
It would be silly not to throw”Jack’s Lilly” into the mix.
7th.I”Pray For The USA”every day
and Frock could shock your pocketbook
but”Sizzlin Hot”is not out of the question.
