Leg 2 of the City of Roses Filly and Mare Sprint Claiming Series on Wednesday 10/30

Sixteen fillies and mares will compete in two divisions in Wednesday’s Leg 2 of the City of Roses Filly and Mare Sprint Claiming Series. The 2nd Leg is a $3,200 claimer at five and one half furlongs and the top point earners from the first two legs will qualify for the $15,000 Final on November 20th which is a $4,000 claiming event at six furlongs.

Leg 2 will be carded in two divisions, covering races 8 and 9 on the program. Noticeably absent from Leg 2 is Impulzive Kate, who won her division of Leg 1 three weeks ago. Spool Girl (4/1 ML) was beaten just a nose that day by Impulzive Kate and she’ll certainly get more attention at the windows this time than she did in Leg 1, as she was 38/1 that day. Controlableimpulse is the 5/2 morning line favorite in the first division of Leg 2 coming off a very troubled fifth place finish in Leg 1. Controlableimpulse was the favorite in that race won by Impulzive Kate but got bumped at the start and then had to check on the far turn.

Salon Blonde (5/2 ML) was a winner in Leg 1 and figures to be a formidable favorite in the second division. She went right to the front last time and coasted to a near three length victory. She’s drawn post seven and will be ridden by Luis Torres for new trainer Sharon Balcom who claimed Salon Blonde out of Leg 1 for $2,500. All The Rage (3/1 ML) will also compete in division two and could be a serious contender. Claimed by owner/trainer Roger Stevenson out of Leg 1, All The Rage went off favored that day but got far back early on and couldn’t catch Salon Blonde in the five furlong event. Javier Matias will once again have the mount.
