Monday’s seventh race from Finger Lakes is the $50,000 Arctic Queen Stakes for New York-bred fillies and mares dashing six furlongs on the main track.
#5 Frosty Margarita (3-1) turns back off a short layoff for Rodriguez (12-for-27 at Finger Lakes), and she is 2-for-3 with a neck defeat here (today’s rider Davila aboard for all three local tries). She is 3-for-3 at this distance and figures to track lively fractions at a speed friendly distance.
#4 Timely Tradition (12-1) exits a nice $25,000 claiming win at Saratoga, and she is the best finisher in this event. The sharp class riser might be able to get a piece of this.
