A winner of her last two starts by nearly 12 lengths, trainer Gary Sherlock’s Show It N Moe It is the horse to beat in Saturday’s $200,000 Evening Jewel Stakes for California-bred or sired 3-year-old fillies at 6 ½ furlongs. Trainer David Bernstein’s rapidly improving Smiling Tigress also merits considerable respect as she figures prominently among a field of eight.
SHOW IT N MOE IT
Owner: Tom London, Terry Lovingier and Eugene Zondlo Trainer: Gary Sherlock
Bred in California by part-owner Terry Lovingier, she has impeccable credentials, with four wins from 10 starts, including a stakes victory versus state-breds in her fourth start this past August. A scintillating 3 ¾ length allowance winner in open company going 6 ½ furlongs here on Feb. 9, she earned a career best 87 Beyer Speed figure. With Rafael Bejarano unavailable to ride her back, Mike Smith takes over for the first time as this daughter of Grace Upon Grace bids for her third consecutive win. Show It N Moe It is out of Lovingier’s Ide mare, Robotica and she has earnings of $227,113.
Owner: Naseer Mohammed Fasihuddin and Madiha Sarwar Trainer: David Bernstein
Second, beaten eight lengths by Show It N Moe It three starts back on Jan. 14, she comes off the best race of her career on March 15, a 3 ¾ length allowance score versus Cal-breds going six furlongs. With one win and one second at age two, she has definitely come to hand for Bernstein at three, as she’s got two seconds and the win on March 15—which produced a career-best Beyer of 80. With regular rider Tyler Baze back aboard, this daughter of Smiling Tiger could be poised for an upset.
