Filly sprint shapes up as replay


ALBANY, Calif. - Friday's Golden Gate Fields feature looks like a replay of a race held Dec. 8.

Four of the six fillies entered in the $50,000 optional claimer at six furlongs met Dec. 8.

Luisathebeachhouse ran second behind Yerevan Star that day. She finished 1 1/4 lengths ahead of Beezer, whom she had dead-heated with for the win in her previous start. Beezer was a nose in front of Princess Lianna on Dec. 8, with My Charmian three lengths behind in fifth.

The track figures to be off Friday. It was muddy Nov. 14 when Luisathebeachhouse and Beezer dead-heated. That race was Luisathebeachhouse's first in six months.

Luisathebeachhouse looks best from the four horses who met Dec. 8, even though My Charmian may have a pace advantage.

One of the new faces, could prove the one to beat, though.

Iflookscouldkill is being sent north by trainer Doug O'Neill off a strong series of races.

After winning two straight, Iflookscouldkill ran fifth in an allowance race and then second in a $62,500 optional claimer with Beyers that tower over her rivals. Her 92 Beyer from a Dec. 9 race surpasses Luisathebeachhouse's Dec. 8 Beyer by 21 points.

Iflookscouldkill also won her lone wet track start.

Top Penny, the only 4-year-old in the race, leads the field in victories (seven) and earnings ($117,227) and also has a wet-track victory.
