P. S. Good N Ready heavy chalk


VANCOUVER, British Columbia – P. S. Good N Ready will be a very short price to win the $100,000 Sadie Diamond Futurity at Hastings on Saturday. The 6 1/2-furlong feature for 2-year-old fillies foaled in Canada drew seven horses and goes as the seventh race.

Trained by Cindy Krasner, P. S. Good N Ready is coming off of an easy 5 1/2-length win over Lornamahra in a 6 1/2-furlong allowance race on Sept. 14. P. S. Good N Ready is clearly the best B.C.-bred filly at Hastings. She cruised to a 4 1/2-length win in the B.C. Cup Debutante on Aug. 4 and then finished second to What R the Odds, a Florida-bred, in the Lassie Stakes on Aug. 23. In the Lassie she was over 10 lengths clear of the third-place finisher, Bright Spring.

Dave Wilson will ride P. S. Good N Ready.

Krasner thinks the horse that has the best chance of beating P. S. Good N Ready is Fashionable Affair.

Trainer Rob Gilker was flattered when told of Krasner’s assessment of Fashionable Affair’s chances. He wasn’t thrilled with the way she was coming into the race, though.

“I love this filly,” said Gilker. “But she isn’t coming into the race in optimal condition. She’s sound but she got a little sick and missed some training.”

Acting on behalf of Leo and Norma Shaw, Gilker claimed Fashionable Affair when she debuted in a 3 1/2-furlong $15,000 maiden race on Aug. 8. In her first start for her new connections she won a six-furlong maiden special weight on Sept. 7.

Next to P. S. Good N Ready, Seashell has the best Beyer Speed Figure in the field.

Quillo’s Intention and Fatal Zone both have excellent speed.
