Pletcher's other filly looks best

Email

While the Todd Pletcher-trained Rags to Riches will try to beat colts Saturday in the Belmont Stakes, another Pletcher 3-year-old filly, Audacious Chloe, is definitely the one to beat in the Little Silver, an overnight grass stakes for sophomore fillies at Monmouth Park.

The Little Silver shares feature status on the card with the Longfellow, a six-furlong dirt race that got onto the card after getting only eight nominations. Wild Eyed Dreamer has won all three of his starts since trainer Scott Lake claimed him this spring, and might stack up well against such veterans as Kazoo and Wild Jam.

Audacious Chloe, meanwhile, has won 3 of her 4 grass starts - all stakes - and was beaten a neck in her only turf defeat. She won Keeneland's Appalachian Stakes in her most recent start, and the front-running style she has displayed in all her turf races could play well on the Monmouth course.

If Audacious Chloe should falter in the 1 1/16-mile Little Silver, the race could fall any which way.

Cabbage Key won two straight Tampa Bay Downs turf races this winter and didn't have an ideal trip last out in a Pimlico turf stakes.

Fibbalator, fifth last out in the Black-Eyed Susan, never has raced on grass, but is out of a mare by Silver Hawk, and thus is bred for the surface switch.

And while Wine Diva's last-start win came in a heavily restricted stakes at Calder, she has won 2 of her 3 career grass starts.
