A mere length separated the first three finishers in the Miss Preakness Stakes at Pimlico on Preakness eve, which adds to the appeal of a rematch involving R Holiday Mood, Strike the Moon, and Bold Affair in Saturday&rsquo;s $200,000 Jostle Stakes for 3-year-old fillies at Parx Racing.\r\nBased on Beyer Speed Figures, however, recent maiden winner Ms. Crusen&rsquo; or former maiden-claimer Amylimehouse could play the spoiler&rsquo;s role in the 6 1/2-furlong sprint.\r\nMs. Cruisen&rsquo;, who dramatically improved when she returned after four months on the sidelines, and Amylimehouse, who stepped up in class and wired eight rivals first time off a $25,000 claim, boast the two best last-race Beyers in the eight-horse Jostle lineup.\r\nLocally based with trainer Michael Aro, Ms. Cruisen&rsquo; earned an 85 Beyer for her 14 1/2-length romp in a maiden special weight sprint not quite a month ago.That represented a 19-point improvement from her second-place finish in early January and a 74-point rise from the 11 she got for her sixth-place finish against $40,000 maiden claimers in her career debut last October.\r\nOf the four fillies who have run back since Ms. Cruisen&rsquo;s May 14 sprint win, the only winner was the last-place finisher, It&rsquo;s My Turn, who got a 66 Beyer for a turf win June 4.\r\nAmylimehouse, who ran for a $25,000 tag in her first two starts in Florida, was claimed out of an 8 1/4-length score at Gulfstream Park by trainer Jason Servis. She responded to the rise in class to a first-level optional $50,000 claimer with a 2 1/4-length score that was worth an 83 Beyer.\r\nAmylimehouse and Honey Chile, third in the seven-furlong, Grade 3 Eight Belles at Churchill Downs, are cross-entered in Saturday&rsquo;s $75,000 Just Smashing Stakes at Monmouth Park.\r\nIn comparison to Amylimehouse&rsquo;s most recent speed figure, R Holiday Mood received a 77 Beyer for her neck victory over Strike the Moon in the Miss Preakness. Bold Affair was a length behind the top pair, while losing for the first time in three career starts.\r\nConsidering the profile of how Pimlico&rsquo;s main track played May 20, Strike the Moon and Bold Affair are candidates to turn the tables on R Holiday Mood. Horses who were first or second at the first call dominated the sprints on the Black-Eyed Susan card, meaning that Strike the Moon raced extremely well to make up nearly 5 3/4 lengths in deep stretch and Bold Affair did a decent job of maintaining her position while racing in third throughout the six-furlong Miss Preakness.\r\nThe X factor in Saturday&rsquo;s race is After Later, who easily won her career debut last summer at Monmouth Park and then went to the sidelines after finishing last in the Grade 1 Frizette in October. After Later shows a pair of bullet workouts for her comeback. Her trainer, Patrick Biancone, is 3 for 5 with dirt sprinters returning from breaks of more than 180 days.
