Santa Anita – Race 4

#7 MISSY P. (6/5 ml)

I’ve been tracking this filly for a few months and have never seen her outbroken or outworked by anyone. She appeared set to be entered in late January/early February after working heads-up with MOONLIGHT D’ORO (who came out of that drill to win the Las Virgenes Stakes), then getting a best-of-47 blowout from the gate. Ran into some weather cancellations however, then briefly missed some training, though seemingly it was nothing major as she then returned to work heads-up with the older stakes winner DOGTAG. Came back after that with another sharp drill, outworking the older stakes horses ASTUTE and TIZAMAGICIAN (note that she’s working almost exclusively with stakes horses at this point). Also note that in addition to the stellar workout activity listed above, the conservative Hall of Fame trainer Mandella is willing to enter her vs. older horses first time out. Good chance MISSY P. is the best 3yo filly on the West Coast.

ThoroBredPicks record:
Win record: 27-for-104 (26% winners)
Total mutuels: $238.90 ($8.85 average win price)
