digitaldowns.us the world’s best virtual horse racing game on the internet proudly presents the Juvenile Fillies Champ Route Finals!
The big money route finals are finally here! We have a dozen 2 YO fillies set to battle for 10F for the ultimate prize. The winner will get the lion’s share of 310,400Kc. 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.
#1 WOOLLY X TROLL
Broke her maiden in start number 5 against winners and pretty competitive against this group since. She’s been able to stretch her natural speed all the way out to 11F which is pretty impressive considering her sharp workouts earlier this season. She’s been facing 1st level allowance foes much of the past two months before clearing that condition in her last start 3 weeks ago. Her 10F trips have been on par with this group, and if she can sit midpack and save ground from the rail she has a good chance to be part of the gimmicks.
#2 ROCK SOLID POTENTIAL
Alternated facing maidens and Route Qualifiers all season long in an interesting freshman campaign. She came within 2 weeks of entering this race as a maiden herself, until breaking through against the minimum sprinting 6F. Her best race to date was her 2nd place finish to her entrymate above beaten only a length. The race was on the newer Santa Anita surface which has been quirky with respect to its recording of speed figures after the race. She has a nice post to work with, but has a tall order against this group.
Nicely bred filly enters tonight off a nice 3rd place finish against this group last out. I like the fact she’s won 2 of her 4 tries at the distance and has put up strong times just south of 2:03. What does concern me aside from the post is her running style and the race possibly not having enough speed signed on to setup her one-run closing style. Figures to be at the mercy of the pace.
#4 ZOOEY ELF
Broke her maiden on debut like a good thing, rallying from near last and making up 6 lengths in the stretch to win going away. It was a wildly impressive run for the nicely bred filly, but she’s failed to follow up that effort and has seen her form in freefall ever since. Granted she’s had some rough trips, but you start to wonder how far she may really want to go. Would love to see her cut back to longer sprints and classic distances.
Impressive claim earlier this season for the rock bottom price of 6Kc. She’s really turned a corner for her new connections, besting qualifier foes in her last start after finding it difficult clearing 1st level allowance horses earlier in the season. She was a good 3rd in the Monmouth Stakes at tonight’s distance in early March, but I thought she had all the best of it, but was a short horse. Should get some pace to rundown again giving her another opportunity in the gimmicks, but is she fast enough for the win? I don’t know.
There were few more impressive this season than her debut score last month. That day she absolutely toyed with allowance fillies before kicking away powerfully by 6 widening lengths. She would go on to win 2 of her next 5 starts and has yet to be worse than 2nd in her career. She’s a perfect 2 for 2 at tonight’s distance and gets a positive jock switch in my opinion. My choice to get the hardware.
#7 RAINING BLOOD
Looking nearly unbeatable earlier this season ripping off 3 straight wins to start her career. Since then she’s lost her next 7 contests and has only finished on the board twice. Along with the difficult post draws of late, she’s had trouble passing horses late. Seems she’s been traveling uncomfortably when denied being part of the first flight. Has only run well once when drawn wide in her career. Needs to show that early speed that was such a devastating weapon for her.
#8 THE WAR TROLL
Having a nice season winning 3 times and placing in 5 others for her veteran trainer. Most impressive to me is the fact this juvy has won from 6F all the way to 12F this season. I’m still trying to figure out how she scored in that 12F event against this group after failing to hit the board against the same in her other tries. Her other two wins have been sprinting, leaving me with the thought she may just be a turf freak. Tonight’s contest is on dirt and she’s going to be facing much tougher tonight.
#9 KING G’S FAN CLUB
Finally got revenge last out on my top choice in here TNTSTOLEFROMSHANNON running down the longtime leader late and kicking clear powerfully by 4. She had just missed by the slenderest of margins in their two previous meetings, but she finally stepped up and broke her maiden. She’s still figuring things out and gives away experience to many of her rivals, but I think she figures with these despite the limited resume.
#10 WOODEN SOLDIER
Remarkably consistent this season on her way to 4 wins in 10 outs. She’s never been out of the superfecta in any of her starts and has developed into a strong closer capable of making up any deficit in the lane. Despite her first win, I’m not entirely sure she’s a 10F type horse. That maiden breaking performance at 10 panels was aided by a ridiculously run 45 and 110 fractions that just fell into her lap after those were fried. Talented, but I’m not sure she doesn’t want more ground.
#11 DON’T LEAVE ME NOW
Has been a handful this season keeping healthy and moving forward. What started out as a promising season breaking her maiden on debut, then successfully facing allowance foes and qualifiers has gone off the tracks of late as her soundness issues continue to be a challenge. She’s been worked carefully in hopes of restoring her form, but she’s been running poorly the past 2 months. Needs racing luck with outside gate.
#12 STYLISH HOLIDAY
Has been a personal favorite of mine to watch and follow this season. She boasts the highest earnings in the field just shy of 178Kc and a winner of 4 of 11 races. Her connections also got this one dual qualified for the Classic Champ Final as well given her great form this season. The 10F Monmouth Stakes Victress is looking for her veteran conditioners first championship if she gets the right trip. In most cases the 12 post would be a big negative, but with this horse it isn’t. While never this wide, she has broken from the extreme outside post before and still managed to win. Instilling more confidence in this one’s chances tonight, is the fact she’s never been off the podium running a mile or more. Top contender.
Picks: 6, 12, 9, 1
