Monday's 6th race from Presque Isle Downs is the Grade 2 Presque Isle Masters for fillies and mares dashing six and one-half furlongs on the all-weather surface (7:35 p.m. ET).

#1 SAGUARO ROW (12-1) was my top pick in the Shine Again Stakes at Saratoga July 31, and she was clearly second best in an okay effort that day. Monday's slightly shorter trip helps, she should get pace help, and she can be along in time if she handles the footing.
#2 Spring In the Wind (8-1) does her best work on all-weather ground, and she exits a clear place finish behind Monday's favorite Hotshot Anna in the Satin and Lace Stakes at six furlongs Aug. 19.
#10 Hotshot Anna (3-1) is 3-for-3 at Presque Isle and 2-for-2 at 6.5 furlongs. She won the Presque Isle Masters (G2) in 2018, and an outside stalking trip is expected.
#11 Misericordia (15-1) is a turf sprint specialist trying all-weather ground. She needs pace help and will try to get involved late.
