Songbird, trained by Jerry Hollendorfer, enters the Juvenile Fillies off of three straight wins, including a romping 4 1/2-length score in the Chandelier Stakes (gr. I) at Santa Anita. Rachel’s Valentina, the second foal out of 2009 Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra, went 2-for-2 at Saratoga this summer, culminating with an impressive late-running win in the Spinaway Stakes (gr. I). She is trained by Todd Pletcher.

Joining these unbeaten fillies are Nickname, winner of the Frizette Stakes (gr. I) last time out, and Dothraki Queen, winner of the Pocahontas Stakes (gr. II) and runner-up in the Alcibiades Stakes (gr. I).

Tap to It’s maiden win was the best race I have seen this year by a 2 yr old of any sex. Then she was compromised twice(broke slow, shied from winner in stretch)in the Spinaway. At 8 to 1, I believe she offers the best value, and is my choice to win.
