I like Feisty Suances, the 5-2 morning-line favorite, in today’s $250,000 Snow Chief Stakes, the marquee event of Hollywood Park’s California Gold Rush card. The 3-year-old son of Suances has been running against the likes of Kentucky Derby contenders Pioneerof the Nile and Chocolate Candy and has been competitive. He’s trained by Darrell Vienna and will be ridden by Victor Espinoza.
Feisty Suances has won three of seven lifetime with two seconds and has career earnings of $139,820 — second in the field to Triumphant Flight’s $206,543. Bejarano, off to a nice start with three wins in the first four Gold Rush races, will ride Triumphant Flight, a son of Chullo who is the 9-2 third choice in the wagering.
A look at the Snow Chief:
Feisty Suances — Wins if he runs back to San Felipe effort
He’s Really Big — Will benefit from fast pace
Unbridled Roman — Proven at the distance
J P Jammer — Upset special
