Inside fillies worth a look

Email

A strong field of 10 fillies and mares is entered in Wednesday's featured sixth race. The one-mile, second-level allowance race on the turf will offer a purse of $34,000.

The inside fillies, Miss Ng In Action and Blushing Ballerina, should draw much of the support here. Miss Ng In Action, a lightly campaigned daughter of Gray Slewpy, has made only four starts so far in her career and already has two victories.

Miss Ng In Action made her debut in July at Santa Rosa in a six-furlong maiden race over the main track. She finished well back in eighth that day and was quickly shifted to the turf by trainer Chuck Jenda.

Her next appearance was at Bay Meadows in a one-mile maiden race on turf and she rated on the lead and then drew away to a four-length victory. She stepped into allowance company in her next try again over the turf and wound up seventh, beaten less then two lengths in a blanket finish. Last out on Sept. 23 she rated in third place early and then finished willingly to for a two-length win. Adalberto Lopez again has the call Wednesday.

Blushing Ballerina closed strongly in her last two tries over the local turf course to be second each time. On Sept. 15, Blushing Ballerina, trained by Brian Koriner, closed from well off the early pace in the Carmel Handicap and finished in a dead-heat for second beaten only a neck for the top prize. Last out she again settled off the early pace and the came wide for the drive to finish second in a 1 1/16-mile allowance test.

Blushing Ballerina has three wins already this season and her late-running style is well-suited for the local turf course.

River Bridge and Lindsay Jean both move into Wednesday's headliner off winning races and should be strong threats to the top pair. River Bridge, from the Darrell Vienna stable, rallied from just off the pace here on Oct. 14 - her first start in more than a year - for a three-quarter-length victory. A repeat of that effort would find her a strong threat with this group on Wednesday.

Lindsay Jean set the pace in her first try over the turf last out on Oct. 10 and never looked back en route to a 2 1/2-length victory. Lindsay Jean was stretching to a mile and trying the turf for the first time for trainer Art Sherman. She passed both tests with flying colors.
