Mc Peek Exacta ?

The Regret Stakes at Churchill today is a Grade 2 for 3 year old fillies, going a mile and 1/8 on the soft turf.

It could be the coming out party for the Ken Mc Peek-trained Bizzy Caroline. Breaking her maiden 2 races back at Keeneland, she was in front under a stranglehold on a very slow pace, and when asked in the lane, she cruised to an easy 2 length victory over a yielding course. Her next race against winners was not without  trouble. Breaking a half step slow from the one hole, she saved ground and was reserved in hand, early on. At the 3/8ths pole as she was starting her run, she was carried out very wide, yet still maintained her drive, and won by 7.  Manny Cruz who is riding very well, was in the irons that day, and rides her back today.

 This looks like the right time for Bizzy Caroline to step up into Stakes Company, and her ML odds (6-1) are tough to ignore.

The other McPeek filly in here, is the much more accomplished, Kathmanblu, who is a stakes winner of over a half million dollars. She seems to be able to run on any kind of turf.

 Dale Roman’s Tapit filly, Diva Ash is another one with talent. Last seen wiring the field in the Edgewood, she is also a horse to watch.

But the two Mc Peek fillies look tough to get by, and Bizzy Caroline looks to be any kind.

She looks to be a Saturday Afternoon horse.
