Tweet Seven year old mare La Chica Rica will take on the boys at Mountaineer Park in her 2010 debut tomorrow night (Friday) in Race 9. Western NY-based Bella Cavello's Stables' star will take on some pretty rugged competition in her return to the races after a seven month layoff. The race, at a distance she has had past success at, will be run at 5 1/2 furlongs where she is 5-2-1 in 9 tries. Chica, the highest lifetime earner in the field, is currently the fourth choice on the morning line behind Harlan Street (8/5), Flavor (9/5) and Run Brother Ron (4-1). Jareth Loveberry (that could so be my stripper name) has the mount on the Rich Girl. While the Stable is looking for this to be a nice prep for a race next month against F&M's, she'll definitely have her hands full running against the likes of Harlan Street, who is 4 for 4 at Mountaineer and 6 for 13 lifetime. Flavor, cuts back in distance and has some nice speed figures and has is also undefeated (1 for 1) over the course. Run Brother Run looks to be out on the lead early and should set the pace. It's good to be blogging about Chica again as she is a huge favorite of this site. The race goes off at 10:20 EST if you're watching from home. Good luck!
