Busher: Princess of Sylmar Even Money

The even-money morning-line favorite for the $100,000 Busher at Aqueduct on Saturday is King of Prussia Stable’s Princess of Sylmar, who is unbeaten in three route starts.

 

Fourth on debut in a Penn National sprint in October, Princess of Sylmar returned to that venue in November to break her maiden by 19 lengths in a one-mile race. Her two most recent starts were wins at one mile, 70 yards at Aqueduct: a 5 ¼-length optional claiming triumph on December 13 and a 7 ½-length romp in the Busanda on January 5.

 

“The only thing that surprised us is that she didn’t win first time out at Penn National,” said Pletcher. “I think it’s just a function of wanting two turns, so she has been very impressive since then.”

 

Princess of Sylmar will depart from post 2 with Javier Castellano in the irons.

 

In the Busher Pletcher will also send out Kimono, who will stretch out off a fifth in the six-furlong Ruthless on January 12, and Marcellina d’Oro, fifth in a Laurel optional claimer on January 19.

 

The main challenger to Pletcher’s triumvirate is Kelli Got Frosty, who has previously raced exclusively against New York-breds. She got up by a half-length in the NYSS Park Avenue in November and aired by 9 ½ lengths in the East View on December 9.

 

Let Me Entertain U completes the Busher field.
