Without further adieu, let's check what's on our radar.
DAFFODIL SWEET — Wednesday, June 17, 2021 @ Emerald Downs, Race 6.
Post Time is 8:11 PM PT
Radar Insight: Horse for the course with 80% wins in 5 starts. Distance specialist with 100% wins in 2 starts.
DAFFODIL SWEET is the 2-1 morning-line favorite for this $50K Hasting's Stakes event for Fillies and Mares, Three-years old and upward. She breaks from the sixth slot for trainer Chris Stenslie and owner One Horse Will Do Corporation.
This Filly loves to win. She's won four of her last five races, with her lone defeat being a second place effort two starts back. The last time we saw her, she took her rivals gate to wire, drawing off to a three length victory in a six furlong assignment on dirt. It was her first start off an eight-month layoff, yet she performed well; just a unit shy from tying her top speed figure.
In her second start back, she should be much sharper. She fired a bullet work last week, going 5F in 58.60 as the fastest of 12 works at that distance. Multi-Graded Stakes winning jockey Juan M. Gutierrez will be in the saddle.
CLICKBAIT — Sunday, June 20, 2021 @ Canterbury Park, Race 7.
Post Time is 4:10 PM CT.
Radar Insight: Horse for the course with 83% wins in 6 starts.
CLICKBAIT breaks from the five-hole and is pegged the 9-5 morning-line favorite. She'll represent the McLean Robertson barn, for owner Hugh H Robertson.
The daughter of LOVANGO stretches out a half-furlong for this assignment, but comes off a smart win last time out at this track in question. Despite racing five-wide for the first quarter mile, she stuck to the task and pressed forward and ultimately took command in the stretch. In victory she defeated the $1.10-to-win favorite of that race.
Her 5 for 7 record at Canterbury Park is unignorable. In what'll be her third start off a layoff, she might run this field off their feet. Cecily Evans rode her to victory last time and is back on the saddle for more!
