Grade 2 – Purse $200,000 – 6 ½ furlongs – Dirt – 3-Year-Olds and Up – Fillies & Mares

The chalk here is the Bob Baffert-trained Eda 5/2 and we know how powerfully this barn targets these graded stakes races here at Los Alamitos.

Eda has won her last five races including the Grade 2 Saint Ysabel Stakes in March when going gate to wire and holding well under the wire. Before that, she was a Grade 1 winner in the Starlet Stakes here at Los Alamitos, so her form is rock solid and she will be a tough foe to all.

One of her main rivals in the betting looks like being Elm Drive 7/2, who beat the chalk in the Grade 2 Sorrento Stakes back in 2021, and who has won her first two starts in 2023, including the Grade 3 Monrovia Stakes two back, where she dueled early before asserting and winning well.

Another that is strong on the morning line is Awake At Midnyte 3/1 who was behind Elm Drive last time but only beaten two lengths. With Eda and Elm Drive positioned next to each other and sure to take each other on for the lead, Awake at Midnyte gets a perfect race set up for her stalking and closing style of racing.

We have mentioned the top three but this is by far from a three-horse race.

The horse who has performed at the highest level is Vegas Magic 10/1, and she was last seen competing at the Breeders Cup in November when finishing down the field in the Grade 1 Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies.

She won the 2022 running of the Grade 2 Sorrento Stakes which puts her on a par with the main protagonists. The downside is that she is coming back from a long lay. However, there is some nice upside with a cutback to sprinting a plus, as well as some sharp drills in recent weeks.

Of the others, then Dance To The Music 6/1 has to be of interest. She won the Grade 3 Desert Stormer Stakes last time where she jumped the gate well but was then restrained to stalk the pace and was strong in the stretch.

This is such a tough race to call with tactics being key. We know that the inside pair of Elm Drive and Eda are going to be forcing the speed and it’s the former who may come out on top in that duel.

However, a narrow vote goes to the returning VEGAS MAGIC who is a nice price on the boards and comes back in looking in decent shape, judged on recent drills.

Dance To The Music and Awake At Midnyte should be battling for a share of the purse money.
