TURF PARADISE Race #1
Tuesday 04/08 01:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #5 (OBLIVION) (7-2) - Mare enters in fine form and runs for the high-percentage barn of Mike Chambers. Professional stalker has back class and should get a fast and/or contested pace to rally into in this abbreviated sprint (5.5-furlongs).
2nd pick: #4 (Ballistic Sue) (3-1) - Very fast from the gate, veteran mare has won 7-of-28 overall and has banked $257K. Working fast for this and leading trainer Bob Diodoro drops her to a new low in price. Obvious win candidate.
3rd pick: #6 (La Torera) (9-2) - Fla.-bred mare loves this surface 6-4-2-0 and enters this off of three close up second-place finishes. Stalker must be left in the three-horse win mix.
4th pick: #4 (Reclusive) (6-1) - Lightly-raced, she's working very fast for her first since Feb. 10, but gives away a lot of wins and experience to the top trio. A small slice is her ceiling.
