I got 20 bucks that says Candygram is going to get the job done in today’s sixth race at Fairplex Park. Jockey change from Delgadillo to Enriquez is a wash. Both are capable jockeys who get the job done with the right horse.
Trained by John Sadler, Candygram is 4-1 on the morning line while the Jeff Mullins-conditioned Mommy Jean is 4-5. Go with the higher price and watch Candygram break her maiden in her 11th career start.
Some other horses I like today:
Seventh — Semi Lost with Pedroza up looks tough, but don’t ignore Refusal at a price.
Eighth — High Investment raced wide last time and could find the winner’s circle with a better trip.
Ninth — Miss Lola La Dare had a wide trip and I like the jockey change, switching to Delgadillo.
Tenth — Sur Chi Chi has had a race over the track and is trained by Juan Garcia, who has already won four times at the meet.
Eleventh — Kimmy’sklassylady is trained by the King of Fairplex, Mel Stute, and has a shot here at 30-1 on the morning line. Don’t dismiss this 3-year-old filly. Baffert’s Prime Catch is the horse to beat.
