I know I’m going to catch some grief for this, but I think 5-LADY OF SHAMROCK is sitting on a big effort. Last time, in the Grade I Rodeo Drive, trainer John Sadler removed the blinkers that “Lady” had donned in the John C. Mabee Stakes and the 4-year-old responded with the best race — from a speed figure perspective — of her career.
After notching two Grade I wins as a three-year-old — not to mention a strong showing in last year’s Filly & Mare Turf — the daughter of Scat Daddy has been blanked (minus a win by DQ) so far at age four. Yet, if she makes one sustained bid, which seems to be Sadler’s game plan, I think Lady of Shamrock could light up the tote board.
Like Princess of Sylmar, 1-DANK is not a pretender in the classical sense, but, rather, a filly that I think will be overbet. Yeah, her score in the Beverly D. was impressive, but it was 77 days ago and it wasn’t that impressive (at least from a figures standpoint).
