La Chica Takes On The Boys

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!

And it's so good to be reading about La Chica Rica again! Run Brother Ron always is always worrisome on the lead (he held off Turf Luck crush -- and G2 winner -- Royale Michele when she took on the boys in an allowance last fall), and Harlan Street always seems to run well at Mountaineer.

By the way, is there any reason Deshawn is on Forestry Gold instead of La Chica? Stripper names not withstanding, I always feel better when D Parker is on a horse I like.

Quinella Queen: According to the BCS boys there's been a trainer change on Chica and he made the call. Thanks for visiting!

I sure as heck did not expect to read about Mountaineer Racing in here. I suppose someone will have to fill me in on this story.

Especially the differences in names.
Bella Cavalli Racing Inc. is listed as the owner of La Chica Rica.

TKS: Bella Cavello is a Buffalo-based Stable (full disclosure: I am their CPA) and La Chica is the star of the stable and I've followed her since I started the blog. So don't be surprised if you read about her next race!

Oh I won't be surprised. I'll probably be hammering the odds down a couple of notches from The Big M.

Such amazing folks we can find on the internet. LOL
