Grade II $200,000 Honorable Miss Headlines Monday Action at Spa

Category : News - Mon 28/07/2014 - 14:04 EDT

Monday action at the Spa includes a single stakes race, the $200,000 Grade II Honorable Miss, a handicap event for fillies and mares three years old and upward going six panels on the dirt.

The event attracts a field of seven including 2/1 morning line favorite La Verdad who enters on a four race winning streak for trainer Linda Rice including the Grade II Distaff Handicap at Aqueduct in April.  La Verdad’s streak also includes wins in nine of her last ten starts with the lone blemish a second place effort in the Grade II Barbara Fritchie at Laurel Park in February.  La Verdad has a sparkling career record of nine wins in eleven starts with just one off-the-board finish - a fourth-place effort in her debut.  

My Wandy's Girl tough to go against 

The second choice, My Wandy’s Girl (7/2 ML), for trainer Michael Hushion defeated La Verdad in the Barbara Fritchie before a third place effort in her last start – the Grade II Ruffian a Belmont following a three month layoff.  My Wandy’s Girl has also been a win machine with fifteen career victories in twenty four starts for earnings of nearly $600,000. 

Speedinthruthecity adds value  

At 6/1 Speedinthruthecity looks like a legitimate value play for those looking to knock off the favorites.  The Steve Asmussen trainee has recorded six wins in fourteen lifetime starts including a victory in the Roxelana Stakes at Churchill Downs in his last effort.  Ridden by Julien Leparoux, Speedinthruthecity figures to sit just off the early pace.
