Laura’s Light is cutting cuts back in distance. She ran well in her three starts recording two wins and a second. Her last two starts were at one mile on turf. She has early speed and should be following the leaders until the turn for home. She appear to have the talent against this field to be the one to beat.
Shines Her Light was a maiden winner over the course in her U.S. debut on Feb. 1. She stalked the leaders and was able to capture the win. She should finish on the board.
Blue Sky Baby has run well in all three of her starts. She won a turf sprint race last fall. day. She tried going a mile in her last two starts. She showed that a shorter distance would be her best effort. This distance should show her sprinting ability. She should finish in the top two.
Lighthouse, well beaten by Laura’s Light going a mile on turf. The shorter distance should increase her chances to be on the board.
