(1) Royal Delta, (2) Beholder, (3) Princess of Sylmar. Four three year-old fillies against a 5 year-old mare that regressed in her last, and a 6 year-old mare that has 11 career starts and no G1 wins. The three year-olds should not be at a disadvantage here. My choice has to be Royal Delta. I think that her last was a bit of an anomaly in that Mike Smith, when challenged, didn’t squeeze the lemon. He will today though and there is too much on the line for her to give in without a fight if seriously challenged. She will either be on the lead or very close to it. Smith will have to make an in-race decision depending on Beholder’s break from the gait and determination to go to the front and not be passed. I love Beholder, but I’m still concerned about 9F. If she gets a clear lead and is not overly pushed early on, she has the ability to wire the field. If she is pushed early, she won’t make the board, IMO. I still think that the way Gary Stevens doled out her speed in her last and had something left in the end that she’ll be right there and no worse than second. Princess Sylmar didn’t come out to SA for nothing, especially when she was originally supposed to be put away for the year. Her last gave them confidence in her abilities against the best. She will not be all that far back. The final 4F is going to be key. Both Beholder and Authenticity ran identical 48.40 final 4F in their last around two turns. Princess of Sylmar’s final 4F around one turn was in 49.13 and Royal Delta in 49.81, which is important to note because both POS and Royal Delta ran much faster first 4F’s in their race compared to Beholder and Authenticity. Close Hatches, visibly impressive in the Cotillion, still ran a slow final 4F in 51.38, and when she made her big move and opened up she did it between a 23.27 third quarter and a much slower 26.52 fourth quarter (3.25 seconds slower). As for Authenticity, just my thoughts, but if Todd Pletcher thought that she had a chance to win this race POS wouldn’t have made the trip, so based on that, and even though she made a nice move in her last, I’m tossing her.
