Scat's Princess has right style in Falls Amiss

Email

Scat's Princess will try to turn the tables on C.R. Charmer as they head a field of eight in Friday's $27,500 Falls Amiss Handicap for Nebraska-bred fillies and mares on day two of the Horsemen's Park four-day summer racing festival in Omaha, Neb.

Friday's races also feature a 1 3/8-mile $3,500 claiming race with a purse of $17,500. That race drew a full field of 10 with Olympic Junction and Tombstone the likely favorites.

Scat's Princess and C.R. Charmer met in the Matchmaker Stakes at Lincoln on June 16 with C.R. Charmer leading gate to wire for a 1o1/2-length win. Scat's Princess rates a slight edge Friday based on her win over this track last year in the Fantango Lady Stakes. Yuri Yaranga will be aboard for trainer David Anderson.

Whispering Hope, third in the Matchmaker, finished fourth in last year's edition of this race. She has been alternating between higher-end claiming and statebred stakes company this year and has 4 wins from 7 starts. Trainer Kim Veerhusen claimed the 7-year-old mare for $6,500 on June 2 off a win. Dennis Collins rides from post 4.

Both C.R. Charmer and Real Battleaxe have a good amount of speed, which should make the stalking style of Scat's Princess effective. Whispering Hope should also appreciate the pace and looms an upset prospect.
