EVANGELINE DOWNS Race #3

Top pick: #5 (SPECIAL COLLECTION) (2-1) - Grey filly has been freshened up since a poor effort at the Fair Grounds in late march. Daughter of "Lemon Drop Kid" had been competitive in all five prior to that and was facing tougher fields than this. In a winning barn ("Bret" Calhoun) and the top pick.
2nd pick: #2 (Babefromthegitgo) (7-2) - Filly was a winner here at this level on April 17th, but was disqualified and placed second for not keeping a straight course in late stretch. Much improved since moving to the turf and an obvious win candidate.
3rd pick: #6 (Belle Evon) (6-1) - Lightly-raced and well-bred, daughter of "Tale of the Cat" has improved in both starts since switching to the grass and last out was only 1 1/2 lengths back of "Babe." Home-bred is a threat at a square price.
4th pick: #3 (Rozannarozanadanna) (8-1) - She has more speed than most entered and tired here after chasing the pace in the same last race as both "Babe" and "Belle." Grey filly by "City Zip" is dangerous if she gets an easy early lead.
