POST TIME 7:24 EST--#1 Iotapa, trained by John Sadler and ridden today by Joe Talamo, appears ready to break out and secure her first graded stakes win. Her 2014 debut "prep" in the G2 Santa Monica was super especially considering that it had been 6 months since she was last seen in a race. She kept company with some of the best last Spring including finishing a solid second to BC Distaff winner, Beholder in the Santa Anita Oaks last April. Will produce a lifetime top today as this one sits in the catbird seat on the way to a big win. #6 Golden Production or #3 Ondine strike me as the fillies most likely to complete the Exacta. The latter ran huge last out in the La Canada hanging on for a very gutsy 3rd after participating in an absolutely brutal early pace.
