Trying to Rebound

La Chica Rica returns tonight at Mountaineer Park in a 5 1/2 furlong sprint allowance race for a $41,600 purse. Her five race winning streak ended ended on 30Aug at Timonium in a 6 1/2 furlong overnight stakes race. She shortens up to a distance that I believe suits her well, but faces some decent competition as the 8-5 ML favorite. Be Golden ships in after trying an $80K stakes at the Spa in mid-August and is the second choice behind Chica and looks to be one of three other speed horses to challenge her on the front end. Pay the Man, winner of a $75K route race last time out, shortens up to a sprint and has the highest speed figure last race out, and has morning line odds of 6-1. Look for Chica to prevail with these two and High Heritage, chasing her in the early fractions. Post time for race 8 is 9:55pm. (Update: La Chica rebounds to win over High Heritage and Pay the Man..another $24K in the Bella Cavello coffers...great work guys!)

I wonder when Arrrrr is going to run again, seems like yesterday would have been the perfect day!

Good luck to the NTRA marketing summit attendees from the TBA in Las Vegas, hopefully by the end of the meetings you'll be able to use the famous A Team motto..."i love it when a plan comes together!"

Lastly, welcome to our new advertiser, TVG, which is now sponsoring the Sprint Division in our standings to the right. Check out their site, it is terrific for the serious horseplayer and casual fan alike.
