Race 7), G1 La Brea Stakes 3YO Fillies 7 Furlongs Post Time 6:15 EST
Unique Bella (3), Tapit filly disappointed as rave favorite last out in BC F&M Sprint, caving late to finish seventh. Today’s smaller field is a plus, but she better be looking over her shoulder late.
Paradise Woods (7), this Union Rags filly will be the one Bella can’t forget, as this multiple Grade 1 winner knows how to close and the cut back to sprinting makes her quite formidable; both will be short prices.
Miss Sunset (1), out of Into Mischief, filly has won 4-of-5 including three straight; Leparoux stays on for his second ride and should bring much needed value to exotics.
Marley’s Freedom (2), value and plenty of it with this daughter of Blame, as she’s won 2-of-3; it’s a big class-test but with the addition of Javier Castellano in the irons, it can happen.
Selections: 3, 7, 1, 2
