Reneesgotzip seeks replicate romp in Rancho Bernardo

Carryover central continues on the fifth Sunday of the meet with $189,822 to begin and the potential for the pool to close in the neighborhood of $2 million. The first four Sunday Pick-6 sequences have proven too difficult for bettors, carrying over into Wednesday each time.

The featured $150,000 Rancho Bernardo Handicap (Grade 3) for female sprinters at 6 1/2-furlongs on the main track lands in the race prior to the Pick-6 sequence, meaning prohibitive 4-to-5 morning line favorite and 120-pound high weight Reneesgotzip cannot be a “free” square. A 5 1/4-length romp that earned a 105 Beyer in an allowance race on July 18 has been the most impressive performance thus far at the stand, however the 4-year-old City Zip filly has regressed and been defeated the previous two times following a triple-digit Beyer effort.

The four challengers each bring credentials that make them a threat, combining to finish in the money in 7-of-9 starts over this main track with four wins.

Included are the first and second-place finishers from last year’s Rancho Bernardo that are listed as co-third choices at 5-to-1, with Winding Way trying to repeat and Sugarinthemorning looking to make amends after blowing a 3 1/2-length lead.

Winding Way was all the rage after last year’s improbable win that saw her spot the field nearly ten lengths before rallying to run her career record to a perfect 3-for-3. Racing gods have evened the slate since then for the 4-year-old Malibu Moon filly, who has finished off the board in a trio of subsequent stakes tries.

The most lightly to keep the favorite company early is 3-to-1 second choice Sweet Marini exiting a wire-to-wire victory in the Fleet Treat Stakes over seven furlongs on Polytrack three weeks ago. The only 3-year-old in the short field of five, the Cal-bred daughter of Sweet Marini fetched a hefty mid six-figure sum in a private purchase out of her debut and can win her third straight and fourth in six career starts.
