Top pick: #5 (THIONESFORRICKY) (7-5) - "Ricky" enters off a career best when she missed by a "nose" here at this level on Feb 27. Mare has worked three times since, retains Bejarano, and stalker draws outside of whatever speed develops. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #1 (Tiz the Key) (4-1) - Daughter of "Tiznow" has been freshened up since racing evenly in a grass stakes here in early October. $330K yearling purchase is working well, has some speed, and draws the rail for her conventional dirt debut.
3rd pick: #3 (Iconic Spirit) (9-2) - Strong finisher hasn't raced since Aug 16th when she raced evenly at this level and trip at Del Mar. She likes real dirt 4-0-3-1 and is a serious late threat if ready.
