#5 MOTHER MOTHER (8-5) should have every advantage from the outside post. She will either go to the front or track outside under her new pilot Flavien Prat. Bob Baffert's filly is better this year. 

#4 Hard Not to Love (6-5) is 4-for-5 with a 3rd, and she got the right setup in the La Brea (G1) Dec. 28. The versatile filly can set the pace, stalk, or close, and that makes her dangerous all the time.

#3 Lady Ninja (2-1) loves this main track and Abel Cedillo should have options with the versatile sort. Richard Baltas has strong stats with the blinkers off move. 


Exacta 5-4
