TURF PARADISE Race #3

Top pick: #5 (HONEY CANDY) (9-5) - Stakes winning filly missed by a "nose" here racing at this level April 6 in her first start since late August. Speed/stalker is from the barn of leading trainer Bob Diodoro, and Alberta-bred is much the horse to beat.
2nd pick: #6 (Unwritten Law) (3-1) - Arizona-bred moves back in with "open" company after just failing to hold on at this level facing fellow state-breds on April 1. She has talent, a speed/stalking style, and looks like the main danger.
3rd pick: #7 (A Drop Dead Diva) (12-1) - Longshot showed nothing last out when 20 lengths behind "Candy." However, it was her first start in five months, and this daughter of the speedy "Henny Hughes" went 12-2-6-1 last year. Blinkers go on and she may grab a share at a big price.
