Race 4: 7 Furlongs. F.G1 Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint
#1 Covfefe (2/1) – The rail is a tough draw she’ll get early pace pressure. The Conductor wants to be against her but there is a chance the circumstances don’t matter at all and she’ll bury them. She’s the most talented in the field.
#2 Danuska’s My Girl (20/1) – No chance.
#3 Heavenhasmynikki (20/1) – Too slow.
*#4 Come Dancing (5/2) – Drawn well to the outside of Covfefe, she looks to get a perfect trip stalking a hot pace. She’s the Conductor’s top pick and the one he’ll press most here.
#5 Lady Ninja (10/1) – Too slow.
#6 Bellafina (6/1) – She loves Santa Anita and another filly that looks to get a nice stalking trip. She pressed a hot pace last time and is cutting back in distance, a move the Conductor likes. However, her declining form gives him pause and she’ll likely be over bet.
*#7 Selcourt (10/1) – The Conductor liked her last year entering this race and she got cooked in a hot pace. That may be her demise again this year, but she’s drawn well and has a chance if Covfefe stubs his toe out of the gate. She’ll be a big number and has figures to run back to that make her competitive in here. The Conductor will use her defensively.
#8 Dawn the Destroyer (12/1) – She can run underneath with a hot pace to close into but is too slow to win.
#9 Spiced Perfection (4/1) – The Conductor won’t use her on the win end. Her figures are too slow for the price she’ll be.
