Two great distaff runner’s face off…
Monomoy Girl and Swiss Skydiver face off today… and while we at JJPP are focusing our betting on Aqueduct and Santa Anita… we will surely take a FANS look at these two – facing off at Oaklawn Park in the 11th on Saturday.
It’s tough to make a particular selection… I have been backing Monomoy Girl for sometime now, totally courageous and loaded with speed and stamina. Then, here comes the Swiss Skydiver who took down Authentic at Pimlico in the 2020 Preakness… I couldn’t believe she could muster that type of performance. For me, that was the best race a filly has run in a long, long time… naturally, she BOUNCED to the MOOn after that massive effort. But returned this season with a wonderful race at Santa Anita, showing she is ready…
If I had to make a pick… I think I have to give Swiss Skydiver the slight edge… and at the M/L of 2/1 she is an absolute Pop Out Key… but I highly doubt those odds will be available.
My HOPE is to see them match strides through the lane and finish in a Dead Heat!
Aqueduct — Power Page Classic and THE PLUS!
Santa Anita — Power Page Classic and THE PLUS!
As my Mom would say, “there is nothing more exciting than watching my $2 bucks run!”
