Cash's Girl going two turns


Cash's Girl tries two turns for the first time in the $65,000 Wayward Lass Stakes, but as one of only two stakes winners in the field, the Tim Ritchey trainee figures to garner a good bit of public support in the 1 1/16-mile test for fillies and mares.

Nine runners passed the entry box for the Wayward Lass. Cash's Girl will carry 116 pounds, including jockey Pablo Morales.

Last season, Cash's Girl won 2 of 6 outings in an abbreviated schedule, and one of those wins came in the six-furlong True Affair at Aqueduct, a race in which Cash's Girl rallied from just off the pace to score a 1 1/4-length victory. She also won an allowance race at Belmont and was fifth in the Grade 1 Prioress and fourth in the Grade 2 Nassau County Breeders' Cup at Belmont.

In her only outing this season, Cash's Girl finished third in an allowance sprint at Gulfstream Park, but she has been training well at Tampa, including a mile drill in 1:44 in her final Wayward Lass tune up.

Inda, from the barn of Shug McGaughey, makes her second start this season and is certainly bred to go the distance. Inda is a daughter of A.P. Indy and Queena, a multiple Grade 1 winner and the champion handicap mare of 1991. Inda finished fourth in the Ladies Handicap at Aqueduct going 1 1/4 miles in her 2007 finale.

Lil's Lassie could be the best of the local representatives. A winner of a third-level allowance route in her last start, Lil's Lassie has won four times in her career, with all of those victories coming over the Tampa strip.
