TVG Expert: Todd Schrupp
Pimlico - Race 9
On the surface #6 Jo Jo Air is a complete standout. She is coming off a win over the Boys last out and is back against females today. Included in the field, she vanquished last out was the 1/5 favorite, previously undefeated and Winner of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint; Bulletin.
Standout, right? I say, ‘No’.
First, Jo Jo Air put it all out there in her most recent win, the turnaround in Three Weeks is a concern for me. In her short career she looks like she is developing a good race, bad race pattern; I’m expecting a bounce here. Additionally, whilst she did beat the boys last out, they were her own age group. In this race she will be taking on OLDER Female rivals, I think that’s a tougher task than her previous start.
My Top Three Selections in Order of Preference:
#7 Angel At War - She tries the Turf for the first time with an adequate pedigree for it. The only other early pace to challenge her is Jo Jo Air, if she outbreaks her, it may be ‘Flag Fall to That’s All’.
#8 Misericordia - Jevian Toledo returns to ride for the first time since her last win. She is better than her Two most recent starts suggest.
#9 Wild About Star - Consistent Louisiana Bred, with a perfect running style for outside draw.
LONGSHOT/Money Back Special Selection: #1 Not in Jeopardy
