Overall View

A busy weekend at the Spa ends with a nice Sunday card and race three is the feature. The route stakes race is a short field, has horses coming out of town. Awesturck comes into town from Indiana Grand where she lost by three quarters of a length in a stakes race. She is the only horse in the field with a race here at the Spa and is 0-1 at the distance. Irad Ortiz Jr is up for trainer George Arnold.  Forever Lisel has a ton of speed on paper. She won an optional claimer last time out at Laurel Park and will need to wire this field with slow fractions if she wants to win for trainer Michelle Nevin. Michelle is having a great meet in NY, winning 20% of her races.
