Twelve promising 3-year-old fillies are set to go in the 26th running of the Silverbulletday Stakes; let’s take a look at the starters.
Race 7) 1m70yds. Silverbulletday S. Purse $150,000 FOR FILLIES THREE YEARS OLD
Post Time: 5:05/( 4:05)/ 3:05/ 2:05
Blonde Bomber (1), Gold/Lezcano; after an awkward start in racing debut, filly has finished in the money in six straight, including a closing third in the BC Juve Fillies; Lezcano ships in for the ride.
Wonder Gadot (2), Casse/Velazquez; checked hard in the BC Fillies and it cost her; she rebounded quite nicely to take the Grade 2 Demoiselle last out at Aqueduct; with Johnny V in the irons, she’ll love the distance cutback.
Saguaro Row (3), Walsh/Lanerie; stakes try last out was tiring, has put together a series of nice works since moving to the Walsh barn.
Remember Daisy (4), Scherer/Murrill; righted herself from a troubled start to best state-breds last out, a turf try; in tough against these for dirt debut.
Stellar Moon (5), Stidham/Albarado; solid training angles in play here, including with rider, but filly’s form is up and down.
America’s Tale (6), Flint/Hernandez, B; maiden score two back produced the field’s highest speed figure; she followed up that win with an equally impressive victory here last month over a sloppy main; class-test but is ready.
Heavenly Love (7), Casse/Leparoux; after drawing away from the G1 Alcibiades field two back, filly caved to the pressure in the BC Juvenile Fillies and finished a country mile back; she rebounds here.
Shes Our Fastest (8), Gelner/Valdivia; minor stakes player is up against it here, but her works are some of the fastest.
Missive (9), Stidham/Bravo; broke her maiden here two back, sloppy go caught her in last however; Jersey Joe Bravo staying is a plus.
Stronger Than Ever (10), McPeek/Geroux; opened her career winning first two, however it’s been a struggle since; jock change to Geroux helps.
Noblame (11), Sharp/Beschizza; gets a class and distance test; connections are off to a smoking start this meet, don’t ignore because of price.
Terra’s Angel (12), Eoff/Risenhoover; filly has been keeping solid company on both turf and dirt, but when she gets beat it isn’t pretty.
