9.5 Furlongs on Dirt
1) crafty novel
d stayright 9/2
Out of the deeprock39 farm is this three year old NOVELLIST filly. She comes in off back to back Grade 1 starts where she was not a factor. In the race prior to that she had a third place at the Grade 1 “The Darley” where she ran 89 speed. Ownership hopes the added distance here today will help her find a spot on the board and start the new season on a positive note.
4) my awesome dootsin
l molinero 5/2
Out of the zcutty farm is this three year old AWESOME AGAIN filly. She has finished in the money in all nine of her career starts and finished her two year old campaign with back to back Stakes wins. She will stretch things out to 9.5 furlongs here today but based on her past two she should have lots left in the tank coming down the stretch and should be the one to beat.
2) imbil fiat
a weldon 7/1
Out of the yamtiertwo01 farm is this three year old JOHANNESBURG filly. She comes in off a win in mid November at the Minsky Dirt Juvenile where she ran 93 speed over eight furlongs. She had just four starts in her rookie season as she was rested for long periods between starts but had three wins. She should be in the mix here today and might hit 100+ speed in her 2020 debut.
3) outback dairy
l buchholtz 4/1
Out of the outback farm is this three year old INTO MISCHIEF filly. She has finished in the money in all four of her starts including two wins. She went 8.5 furlongs last time out and responded well with a late dash down the stretch to win by more than two lengths. She will like the added distance and cool Texas air and should be one to watch out of the three hole.
m brown 5/1
Out of the slim farm is this three year old BERNARDINI filly. She has finished in the money in one of her two career starts as she had a runner up in her first start back in October when she ran impressive 82 speed. She followed that up with a fourth place finish to end her year but had lots left in both races and I think will benefit from the extra distance here today. She might surprise and will be a nice long shot pick.
5) bug limit
s r vaughan 9/2
Out of the ragman farm is this three year old SPEED LIMIT filly. She comes in undefeated having won her first three career starts. Last time out she blazed 93 speed at 8.5 furlongs to come from behind to win by less than a length. Looks like she could have success on both turf and dirt and may need to break 100 speed to keep her hot streak alive.
7) royal surprise
a arthur 5/1
Out of the tfon32 farm is this three year old SPEIGHTSTOWN filly. She is our most experienced entry having raced twelve times in her two year old campaign. She finished in the money in eight of her starts including two wins. Stretched things out a little in her last two and was successful so she should be comfortable with the extra distance here and should be in the mix.
