That was very enjoyable to watch. Mrs. Crews held on to win by about 2 lengths on the sealed surface under a nice ride from Manny Franco. She earned $26,400 out of a $48,000 purse for her efforts. She probably won't be a superstar, but has the look of a very useful 3 year old filly who could be competitive at a higher claiming level.
I thought that I would be continuing to root for trainer Rob Atras, a former assistant who has just begun training on his own, taking over a small New York string from Robert Diodoro. However, Mrs. Crews was claimed out of this race by Michelle Nevin for owner Michael Dubb.

Taking a huge hit on my selections this week. Two of my three choices aren’t running due to weather cancellations. Looks like I’ll be out of the contest this year, unless they get in before February comes.

Sorry but cancellations are all part of the game. Pretty sure that Tampa Gulfstream FairGrounds Santa Anita Turf Paradise will all have eligible races in the final week of the month and the weather forecast for Parx , Aqueduct and Penn National looks promising .
