#8 TENSAS PALMYRA goes for the déjà vu angle as she is out of the same dam that produced the multiple stakes winning Tensas Yucatan who is also trained by Morris Nicks and who was ridden to a dominating win in her debut by Robby Albarado in January 2007 over the FG track. #7 EVERY DAY COUNTS has three 2nd place finishes to show for her 5 starts, so looks due for a win today making her 2nd start of the FG meet for trainer Steve Asmussen. #9 CURLEY KIM was only beaten 5 lengths after a wide trip when breaking from post 11 in her last race. She’s had two good works since then, including a bullet on December 13th, and she makes only her third lifetime start today so has plenty of room for improvement.
