Maiden claiming $32,000, 6-1/2 furlongs, 3-year-olds
Possible overlays Morning line
#4 White Lace Jimmy 2/1
#5 Llamada Perdida 10/1
#7 Lahcotah 7/2
Trainer Richard Matlow’s horses are doing well second time out and #4 White Lace Jimmy got a four-wide trip in his Dec. 7 debut, but still finished well.
First-time starter #5 Llamada Perdida worked out strongly on Jan 4, going four furlongs in 47-3/5 seconds to be the sixth best of 78 at the distance. And #7 Lehcotah was close to the pace until the turn in a Nov. 26 route race, before giving way.
At 7/2 to 19/1, I’ll bet $200 on #5 Llamada Perdida.
At 2/1 or better, I want $200 to win on #4 White Lace Jimmy. But if White Lace Jimmy is bet to 9/5 or lower then, I’ll put $150 on #7 Lahcotah at 3/1 or more.
