Maryland Million Play Of The Day

Laurel Race 11 - The Maryland Million Classic
Going to continue the theme of fillies beating boys with Saturday's play of the day. For a change we are going to head south on I-95 to Laurel. Sweet Goodbye looks like a true alpha female as she has wired six out of her career eight starts. She surely will be out in front of these boys and is likely to take them wire to wire. An expected wet track should help her cause as her highest lifetime beyer figure was over a sloppy track and she has worked recently over a sloppy track. The 8-1 morning line would be fantastic but I am expecting a price like 5-2.

The post pos doesn't scare you?

As a married man I am fully qualified to answer this question. One look in the eye from the alpha-female -Sweet Goodbye- the lead is hers. Any upstart bachelor with his eyes on the lead will slink back into his submissive role with one look in the eye and afford Sweet Goodbye her rightful place in the front of the pack. The post position does not worry me as I am sure she will be clear and on the rail.

Ouch this filly did not have it today. She was pressed somewhat hard and folded at the top of the lane. She was quickly remanded to the back of the pack like an ugly stepdaughter.
