Analysis:
PRIDE sold for $475,000 earlier this year after working a furlong in a bullet 10 seconds flat. It looks like she’s kept live company in the mornings with Pletcher meet debut winner Royal Card, and the Keeneland Clocker Report for April 18 notes that she “worked in company with Mr. Mistoffelees,” an impressive debut winner here on Thursday.
SHINING MOMENT is bred both sides for speed and although the Steve Asmussen barn has struggled at this meet, he is one of the best first-out trainers on the planet.
His other runner, SHEMEANSBIDNESS, is by a quick young sire, but Asmussen’s go-to rider, Shaun Bridgmohan, ends up on Shining Moment.
ASHAPOO attracts Edgar Prado, but the workouts only give out mixed feelings. SHADOW OF STORM is by the great Storm Cat from a wonderful female family. SYMBOLOGY should be precocious with sprint influences on both halves of the pedigree. Her trainer is an excellent source of debut winners, and the April 18 Clocker Report noted that she gave “a good speedy effort, by herself.” You have to respect Wesley Ward’s numbers with firsters, and NO SPEED LIMIT is bred to be a quick one. SUCH FLASH goes out for an excellent debut trainer. With speed on top, and grass stamina on the bottom, she’s a good candidate to handle Polytrack nicely. CAMERON CRAZIES gave a “sharp gate effort, pulling away from A. R. Rio Bravo,” according to the Clocker Report from April 13. A. R. Rio Bravo is a winless, older gelding from the Lukas barn. LADY FORTUNE must break from a tough inside post. DONNA D. and COOKIE DOUGH both may need a start.
