Pointed for this Gr. 3 stake returning from a 2-month freshening. Returns to a firm turf course following a ‘better than it looks’ 2nd in a stake at Ellis Park. Wrong tactics were employed that afternoon. She was hard used dueling right from the start, giving way grudgingly in the very late stages. Most effective when she has a target to run at. Stretches back out to 1 1/16 miles, the distance which has accounted for 3 of her 6 wins. Gets an upgrade in riders to G. Saez, who has had success hooking up with trainer Steve Margolis.
