She's a Smash invades

Email

She's a Smash and Bird of War are the leading contenders in the $50,000 Country Road, a 4 1/2-furlong restricted stakes for 3-year-old fillies at Charles Town.

She's a Smash, based in Maryland with trainer Gary Capuano, is 2 for 2 since she was switched to ultra-short sprints. Her 77 Beyer is the best last-out figure in the field of nine.

Bird of War is a short-sprint specialist, with 3 wins and 3 seconds in 8 such starts, all at Charles Town. She has not raced since romping in a second-level allowance on New Year's Day and seems to need at least one race following an extended layoff to fire her best shot.
