Considering may have found right spot


Since winning a statebred stakes last year as a 2-year-old, Considering has struggled to get on track. Considering should get her confidence back when she meets six other Massachusetts-bred 3-year-old fillies in Sunday's $50,000 Louise Kimball Stakes at Suffolk Downs.

Considering dominated the Amelia Peabody Stakes last November over just three rivals, two of whom are back for Sunday's six-furlong sprint for 3-year-old fillies. Described by trainer John Rodriguez as a "skinny little thing," Considering's options this year have been limited. She was last in an allowance race at Delaware in May and she was eighth against fillies and mares in the Isadorable Stakes on July 5.

"We didn't want to put her in another allowance race because that would have done nothing for her confidence," said Rodriguez. "She got the winter off with these races in mind."

In addition to this race, Rodriguez also plans on sending Considering in the African Prince Stakes against males Aug. 24.

Innocent Kip, second in the Peabody last fall as a maiden, is still looking for her first victory, but like Considering she should relish this chance to avoid older foes. She's also the only filly in the race to finish better than second-last in her most recent start. She was third in a maiden claiming race.

Angel's Treasure, Anotha Toughcookie, and Luckee Match were all last in their most recent race. Considering and Silks Treasure were both second-last. The Lion Oprah is a first time starter.
