Doinitthehardway: Filly Won’t Be Beat Next Time Out

Two year old Street Sense filly for Bob Baffert made her first try going two turns in Friday’s second, a mile main track affair for maiden special weights. Off at the 2nd choice in the wagering at 5/2 in a six horse field, she was hustled away from the gate by J.J. and dueled with the favorite into the clubhouse turn. She settled in 2nd down the back side just one length back of the leader who was the odds on favorite. She took a run at her at the ¼ pole, stuck her nose in front at the top of the lane, and battled gamely down the stretch to finish 2nd beaten one at the wire. This was a strong race and they won’t beat this filly next time to the post.
