Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #1 (TOWERING GAZE) (5-2) - This filly is one of two entered by Dave Donk, and the pair race uncoupled. A Generazio homebred by 'Gio Ponti,' she's been competitive in all three attempts facing tougher. In a claimer for the first time, she can win this with a clean break from her inside post.
2nd pick: #2 (High School Crush) (7-2) - Improving sort rallied to miss by a 'head' here at this level and distance July 31. That was a very good effort, and she came back with a bullet three-furlong work in 00:35.60 Aug. 15. A win candidate.
3rd pick: #6 (Mia Bea Star) (4-1) - The second of the pair from Dave Donk, she moves back to the grass after finish a troubled 4th here in a dirt sprint Aug. 12. Her first pair on the turf came against tougher, and it's noted that Irad Ortiz, Jr. is aboard.
4th pick: #5 (Silent Empress) (3-1) - She had some traffic issues when debuting here on July 31. Filly was 3.5 lengths behind 'High School Crush' that day and has the hot combo of trainer Chris Clement and jockey Joel Rosario in her corner today. In the mix.
