2013 Mrs. Revere Stakes

Mrs. Revere Stakes at Churchill

TapicatIt is time to preview the Grade 2 Mrs. Revere Stakes for 3 year old fillies to be run over the turf course at 11/16 miles with a purse of $175,000 at Churchill Downs. The morning line favorite is William Mott’s Tapicat ridden by Mike Smith. This horse loves to be on the lead and I believe that is the way she will run on Saturday. However she spit the bit recently in the Grade 2 Lake Placid at Saratoga and I can’t see it being any different here. She will have some company on the front end here and I fear the outcome will be pretty much the same. Of course I have said that before about other horses and was completely wrong. But such is the life of a handicapper. Next in the ML is Wesley Ward’s Emotional Kitten with Victor Espinoza up. Honestly, I don’t see her deserving of second favoritism because she has failed to get the job done in her last 3 Graded events even though she ran 2nd in the Grade 1 American Oaks in July. She likes to stalk the pace and will have a lively one to stalk here.

I'm Already SexyThird in the morning line is Wayne Catalano’s I’m Already Sexy ridden by Florent Geroux. This horse intrigues me although I am not sure why. She was 6th in the Grade 1 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup after running on the pace early in the race and getting beat by just 3 lengths. Prior to that she went gate to wire in the Grade 3 Pucker Up at Arlington Park. There is something about her… So I have to make some sort of selection here, but I am torn between two horses. I really like Praia who is coming off of a stakes win at Keeneland and is prepared to make a nice run in this one. And I do like her odds of course. But I also like I’m Already Sexy for some reason also. Anyway I’m picking I’m Already Sexy first, Praia second and Nellie Cashman third. But I will probably bet both Sexy and Praia to win and place. Good Luck Gals and Guys!
