digitaldowns.us the world’s best virtual horse racing game on the internet proudly presents the Juvenile Champ Sprint Finals!
The big money sprint finals are finally here! We have a eleven 2 YO fillies set to battle for 5F for the ultimate prize. The winner will get the lion’s share of 282,400Kc! It was a long journey for these 2 YOs to get the necessary points to make it into the big money finals. Amazing job by the connections to get to this point. Let’s take a closer look at the field.
Won two qualifiers this season for a solid freshman campaign. She’s been out of the money in her last six starts as she’s attempted to qualify for the Classic Champ finals and defeat allowance foes. Her dirt form is good and she has a bit of speed to use from her rail position so she does have a chance, but this is a tough field. Looks more of an underneath candidate to me.
#2 BULLY BEEF
Filly has been very impressive this season winning 6 of her 8 races while only missing the board once. She’s defeated this group in each of her two starts, once at 5 panels and the other at 6. She’s also showed some versatility this season, coming from off the pace or racing on it. Her speed figures rate with the other top contenders in this field and she drew a nice post. Interestingly she will be ridden by Moore, who’s yet to win on this photogenic filly albeit in just one start over the 6 for 7 Bejarano. My 2nd choice.
#3 TEMPLE MOUNT Has been withdrawn
Solid freshman campaign winning 3 times and hitting the board in 2/3’s of her starts. She’s blessed with tremendous early speed setting the half in 44.50 on several occasions on her way victory or a minor board spot. Her last tuneup for this race was good, but despite the rail draw and the hot pace she was only able to muster a distant 3rd. Her maiden score was her only wire to wire performance so I’ll prefer this one to relax a bit up front and try to make a late move. Battles for minors here with the right trip.
#5 SECRET AGENT GIRL
Already racked up 5 wins this season in her juvenile bow, something not uncommon for an Orb Farms trainee this early in a career, but impressive nevertheless. She’s more of a mid-pack stalker in her races, but has successfully wired the field as long as a mile before. I do have some reservations about her. I would of liked to see more experience at tonight’s 5F distance as so far she’s had just the 1 start, a distant 3rd in a field of 4. Her turf resume is outstanding a perfect 4-4, whereas her dirt record is 1-6. More of an underneath player to me based on those factors.
#6 TIGRESS OF WAR
Was brought along the Champ series road methodically by her HOF connections facing allowance foes for the first 3 months of the season, before facing this group twice. She’s only been out of the money twice in 14 starts, and has won 3 times against winners making her a pretty solid filly. She qualified tonight off the strength of a runnerup finish to TORNADO WARNING who nearly broke the track record at Santa Anita earlier this month. Likely needs to move forward off that effort to contend for top honors, but yet another contender for the minors.
#7 TABOO TOO
Has had a solid, but up and down season for her freshman campaign winning 5 times in 21 starts and banking a staggering 241Kc for her connections. She’s also qualified for the Champ Classic final given her talents in that series. She had just 3 starts at 5F thus far and was only to be in the money in one of them. More of a classic type given her preferred running style and recent form. She’s been facing tough foes all season long, but the cutback to 5F gives her podium chances a bit hit.
#8 TORNADO WARNING
Showed her class on debut, winning a salty chatroom event before taking on stakes and qualifier foes later on in the season. She tried her had at the route distances in the middle part of the season, but was left wanting aside from a nice runner up finish in the 8F FOY stake. She has a devastating turn of foot as evidenced by her near record time of 57.57 last out in what I think will turn out to be the key race. She’s 2 for 3 over the new track and looks poised for another big effort with the speed signed up for this one. My top choice.
Well bred filly has been active this season, running in all 3 divisions of qualifiers to begin her career. She’s just 1 for 13, however, and you’d have to go back to her track record debut back in February against Champ Classic foes to find that win. She’s qualified for the Classic final later this month off the strength of that victory and another minor board spot. Needless to say her talents and early speed are best harnessed over more ground for her best run. Her lone 5F try was the key race I mentioned earlier regarding my top choice. She was badly outrun early, but did pass a couple of tired foes in the lane. I’ll wait for the Classic finals for this runner.
Another that’s dual qualified for the Classic final given her form this season. She’s won 5 times in 16 tries and banked nearly 110Kc in her brief career. She been struggling a bit this last half of the season, failing to hit the ticket in her last 5 outs. My biggest concern with her is all 5 of her lifetime wins came within her first 6 starts of her career and she’s hit the board just 3 times since then. She’s another I’d like to see in the Classic Final, especially with the wide post draw in this deep field.
#11 ADDICT TO WHISPERS
Lightly raced King G trainee enters tonight light on experience and with a difficult post assignment. She qualified for this event closing from 10th and last to be a late 3rd against this group at 6F. Her other two efforts against these foes were at 5F, but she was badly outrun in both of those starts. Has to improve.
As with most TNT runners on the Champ trail she’s faced quality foes early and often. Her best races have been at the longer classic distances and would probably like to tack on a couple of extra panels for tonight’s contest. She does have a runner up finish against this group, but it was a distant 2nd to a runaway winner in a short field. Her dirt resume is poor, winless in 8 starts with just two ITM finishes; that coupled with the extreme outside draw and the waters appear to be too deep to overcome.
Picks: 8, 2, 1
