Analysis: 

#12 HEART ASHLEY didn’t fare too well in the draw for post positions in this race, but has run two games races with a 2nd and most recently a strong 4 ½ length win in a maiden special weight at CD, both time running at the 7 furlong distance. She now goes 6 furlongs for her first start of the meet for the Asmussen/Bridgomhan combo. #9
ON THE MENU is a strong contender from the Larry Jones barn. She won a special weight in her debut and then tried a G2 at Belmont. She now makes her first start over the FG track and only her 3rd lifetime start and races here off of a 5 furlong bullet, the best of 54, on December 15th. #7 HOW FAR IS HEAVEN makes her 3rd lifetime start today and has the same race pattern as ON THE MENU with a debut win followed up with a stakes try. HOW FAR IS HEAVEN comes down from WO and will be running over the dirt for the first time today with Jesse Campbell aboard for trainer Mark Casse.
