PWC filly & mare TURF

presented by pepsi

G3 - $500,000

SCENE SETTER: The second running of the Pegasus Filly & Mare Turf lacks a standout on the tote, making for a great betting race. Millionaire speedster DALIKA is expected to take her place at the head of the pack. WAKANAKA was new to the US scene when sixth in this race last year, but has since found her way toward the top of the division for Bill Mott. She knocked off SHANTISARA at Keeneland in November, but trainer Chad Brown should have that one primed for her 2023 return.

1/ST BET FACTORS, POWERED BY BETMIX:

Top 1/ST BET Factors for similar Gulfstream races are Avg. Earnings Track and Best Speed Last 3.
Last year’s winner Regal Glory ranked on top in 8 1/ST BET Factors, including Avg. Lifetime Earnings and Avg. Turf Earnings.
