We're in the Money back to one turn

Email

We're in the Money, a three-time stakes winner in ultra-short sprints last season, returns to her best distance and restricted company for Saturday night's $50,000 Its Binn Too Long Stakes at Charles Town.

The 4 1/2-furlong race, restricted to West Virginia-bred 3-year-old fillies, drew a field of nine.

As a 2-year-old, We're in the Money reeled off three straight stakes wins, all going 4 1/2 furlongs. Her last six starts have been around two turns, including a loss by a head bob in a second-level allowance against open company last time out three weeks ago.

Among her opponents are two fillies We're in the Money narrowly defeated last year, Burnwell Princess and Touch of Class.

Burnwell Princess, who has not been worse than second in six starts, will be making her first start since February. Last October, she led until deep stretch as a 45-1 shot in the $190,000 West Virginia TC Nutrition Breeders Classic, giving way to We're in the Money.

Touch of Class returned from a six-month layoff to win her 2008 debut on May 18. She lost to We're in the Money by only a neck in last fall's Golden Gull.

The field also includes Shesdebonairness, a two-time winner locally last season, including the Eleanor Casey Memorial Stakes. Based in Maryland with trainer Dale Capuano, she has been facing opening claiming company at Laurel Park and Delaware Park.
