The Princess of Palms, for fillies and mares, at 6-furlongs, attracted a field of 10 and will go as the 7th race on an eight-race card. Post time is 12:55 pm.
The competition and the angles:
Leading trainer Robertino Diodoro, who has already won 10 races from 16 starts over the first three days of the new meet, is sending forth multiple stakes winner Gorgeous Ginny. ANGLE: The 3-year-old miss is a perfect two-for-two in stakes locally and has been competitive against tougher is southern California and jockey Glenn Corbett is currently batting 25% in the win department.
Lake Time: One of two southern California shippers, the 4-year-old has been competing against high priced claimers over on the coast. A confirmed closer with a $141,066 bankroll from two career wins. ANGLE: She may find this competition softer.
Sierrita: A homebred who’s been in the money in 20 of 28 starts, the 5-year-old remains competitive no matter who she’s facing. ANGLE: She loves the local surface, having won 6 of 16 starts.
Dontkissntell: Lightly raced 3-year-old of trainer Valorie Lund, who won an $85,000 sprint stakes at Emerald Downs in August. ANGLE: Can go to the front or be rated and gets the red-hot David Lopez who’s won half his eight rides.
Holy Mosey: The second of the southern Cal shippers who’s coming off three in the money performances on the coast. ANGLE: Another closer who’ll benefit from the dueling speedsters.
BCZ Middleton: Trainer Jeff Metz and BCZ Middleton will be looking for a record third consecutive victory in this race. The 5-year-old mare leads all earners with $183,821. ANGLE: Those racing with her on the front end do so at their own peril. She doesn’t give in without a tough fight.
Brechin’s Command: Well-traveled 3-year-old who will be racing mid-pack has won three of 12 efforts in mid-level claimers plus a $50 grand stakes at Hastings. ANGLE: Gets the talented Francisco Arrieta who’s so far won 6 of 17 efforts over three days of racing for 35% win mark.
