The $300,000 Falls City Handicap (G2) at Churchill Downs on November 28 has drawn a field of nine fillies and mares marching towards the conclusion of their seasons, and for many, their careers. Two horses are slated at 3-1 on the morning line, #6 Sally’s Curlin and #9 Go Google Yourself.
#6 Sally’s Curlin (3-1) is a $160,000 daughter of Curlin who is coming off a win in the Chilukki (G3) here November 2. Corey Lanerie will be back aboard for this, which is this filly’s second try at the 1 1/8-mile distance of the race. She has won three in a row, including two allowances by open lengths, and is three for five on the surface for trainer Dale Romans.
#9 Go Google Yourself (3-1) was the winner in the Locust Grove (G3) here September 14. She also took the Groupie Doll at Ellis Park in August, and has a record of two wins, two seconds, and two thirds in eight starts on this track. Paul McGee trains, Brian Hernandez, Jr. trains the daughter of Into Mischief.
#8 Ratajkowski (7-2) is here for trainer Brian Lynch. The five-year-old mare has only six lifetime starts, but has won four of them. She is a winner at the distance and a stakes winner against New York-bred company. Julien Leparoux climbs aboard for her first Kentucky start.
#3 Mylady Curlin (7-2) is a local runner for trainer Brad Cox. The Curlin filly is unbeaten at the distance and a winner over the track. She was second by less than a length in the Chilukki Stakes, and third in the Locust Grove behind the top two. Before that she was riding a five-race win streak, including two stakes races against lesser company. She is always right there at the finish.
#1 Moonlit Garden (10-1) is the second Cox runner. This will be her 26th lifetime start. She has won over the distance but not over the track. She has been top three in 18 of 25 lifetime starts. Florent Geroux will ride the graded stakes placed Iowa stakes winner.
Grandaria, Vevina, Over Thinking, and Princess Causeway round out the field.
