Churchill Downs – 4th race – Post time: 12.05 ET
2- American West (3-1)
Promising daughter of Curlin won her debut last fall, so we know she can fire fresh, and in her second start finished a good but distant second to the high-quality filly Malathaat in the Tempted Stakes. She makes her 3-year-old debut in this allowance optional claimer for C. Brown (a spectacular 29% with layoffs) while adding Lasix and drawing nicely inside in this middle distance main track affair for 3-year-old fillies. At or near her morning line of 3-1 she’ll offer wagering value in the win pool and in rolling exotic play.
Santa Anita – 2nd race – Post time: 1:30 PT
3-Big Treat (3-1)
This R. Hanson-trained filly appears fit and ready to win the first baby race of the season after breaking sharply in a pair of recent gate works and displaying good speed while easily handling her workmates. The daughter of Mr. Big does everything like a win-early type so at 3-1 on the morning line we’ll make her a win play and rolling exotic single.
