Stakes Saturday on Turf

The lull after the 2015 Breeder's Cup Championships does have a few great stakes races. On this Stakes Saturday we look at a classic Turf distance for the ladies.

Aqueduct Race 8 {Long Island Handicap~G3~1 1/2 mile~TURF~3 year-old Up~fillies/mares~Graded Stakes}

An extremely talented bunch of gals will hit the grass in this feature race. There is enough speed to keep an honest pace. Many in here will be stretching out to this classic distance for the first time. The speed numbers are relatively close with many on the improvement arc.
It should be one of the best races of the day.

#8 Mutalis Mutandis [IRE] (J. Velazquez / Walker) will be making her second North American start after successfully racing across the pond. She holds the fourth highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and three strong workouts. This daughter of Mastercraftsman [IRE] should be tracking the pace closely ready to strike.
$1 WIN  /  $2 PLACE  /  $3 SHOW.

#5 Gotachancetodance (L. Saez / Pletcher) should challenge as she stretches out to this distance. She holds two good last out speed numbers, a six race progression, and two solid workouts. This gal continues to improve with each effort and should continue that trend. A daughter of English Channel, she is another that will be tracking the pace ready to roll.
$1 PLACE  /  $2 SHOW.

#3 Danza Cavallo [FR] (J. Ortiz / C. Brown) could go off as the favorite with the second highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and three robust workouts. She has an 83% in the money record at this distance from six starts. This daughter of Sunday Break [JPN] should be forwardly placed for a first jump on the field.
$1 SHOW.

Another Wagering Interest

#10 Walk Close (Franco / Clement) is one that should contend with the third highest last out speed number, a five race progression, and four significant workouts. She is coming off a modest workout having last been seen winning the Modesty at Arlington International. This daughter of Tapit will be tracking and closing gracefully.

10 CENT Superfecta

#8 Mutalis Mutandis [IRE]  /  #5 Gotachancetodance  /  #3 Danza Cavallo [FR]  /  #10 Walk Close.
