Procrastination: Good Enough For This Condition Turf or Dirt

Three year old filly for Mike McCarthy tried the turf for the 1st time in her four race career in Saturday’s opener and handled it just fine. Off at 2/1 in a field of just five for the 1st allowance condition at ¾ on the sod, she was away OK from the gate and sat in 3rd down the back side 3 off the leaders. She moved into contention at the ¼ pole, and then made a good run on the outside but was beaten by a horse with a dream trip up the rail. She got beat a length and a half but it was three back to the third horse. She was stakes placed as a juvenile and she’s good enough to knock out this condition, turf or dirt.
