Byrama can continue her winning ways coming down the hill in today's $100,000 Senator Ken Maddy Stakes (G3).
The three-day stakes drought comes to an end as females roll 6 ½-furlongs in the $100,000 Senator Ken Maddy (Grade III) with the hope the moisture in the air stays at a minimum so the race remains on the downhill turf course.
Facing her elders for just the second time, Byrama is the 3-to-1 favorite having carved out her niche as a late-running sprinter. The 3-year-old British-bred daughter of Byron has won her last three starts with Rafael Bejarano in the irons and they exit a win in the Unzip Me Stakes three weeks ago that made her a perfect 2-for-2 over this layout.
Broken Dreams is the 7-to-2 second choice looking for a Maddy repeat after getting up by half a length at 5-to-1 in last year’s edition. With that race scheduled three weeks earlier, the 6-year-old daughter of Broken Vow was able to use it as a prep for the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint, where she was soundly beaten and began her current streak of just one win from six starts.
Jumping into graded stakes competition and trying turf for the first time, Kindle has the potential to be lone speed as the 4-to-1 third choice. The 4-year-old Indian Charlie filly wired the Bangles and Beads at Fariplex Park in her last and speed rider Edwin Maldanado is back aboard.
