Crist: Honorable Miss analysis

Email

The Grade 2 Honorable Miss, the Monday feature at Saratoga, is a six-furlong prelude to the seven-furlong Grade 1 Ballerina on Travers Day. This year, though, three of the leading contenders for the Ballerina instead had their prep a week earlier, when Better Lucky, Grace Hall, and My Miss Aurelia all turned up in the ungraded Shine Again Stakes because of its seven-furlong distance.
