then flattened a bit late to finish second (to $2.20 winner) in her latest;
solid filly typically brings back a share, so be sure to include.

starts, but has put in a pair of good second-place finishes since back from
July-layoff and moved to trainer Donnovan Haughton; next time.

improvement for winning D. Kobiskie (21% wins last year) barn.

blinkers added when a new face in town for her first start since mid-January;
worth another shot.

half-length in winning racing debut; daughter of Distorted Humor has pedigree
to show more at added distances and with experience, so stay on board.
OLYMPIC DANZ (BRZ): Chased and weakened to fourth when
beaten as the favorite in his latest; proven veteran has finished on the board
in 20 of 38 lifetime starts, so you can’t leave him out.

third at long odds in her latest; now has three races in her since back from
September-layoff, and can continue to move forward.

through the lane for third when able to outrun his 17.40-1 tote price in
