Miss Me Not looks right in feature

Email

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Saturday's feature race at Hastings, an allowance race for 3-year-old fillies who haven't won a stakes in 2006, was written with a horse like Miss Me Not in mind. A stakes winner as a 2-year-old, Miss Me Not is as honest as they come but hasn't been up to beating the top females at Hastings this year. The 1 1/16-mile feature drew 10 horses and will go as the seventh race.

Trained by John Snow, Miss Me Not won an entry-level optional $50,000 claiming race June 4, and since then has been running exclusively in stakes. In the B.C. Cup Dogwood Stakes on Aug. 7, her late rally came up just short and she finished second. In her last start, she tackled older fillies and mares in the Grade 3 Ballerina Breeders' Cup and finished fifth, 2o3/4 lengths behind the winner, Gins Majesty.

Devoid of any speed, Miss Me Not will need an honest pace to run at. With the speedy Cedar Fever stretching out for the first time, there is a very good chance they will be flying up front.

No Ka Oi won the Sadie Diamond Futurity last year, but her lone win in 2006 has come in a $40,000 optional claiming race.

Klinsman's Luck is the only horse in the field who has won at the distance, and with her tactical speed she should get a good trip just off of Cedar Fever.

Cedar Fever has won four races this year, including her last two, but she has never gone farther than 6 1/2 furlongs.
