PICK: #7 American Legend (Race 7 - Fair Grounds)
#7, American Legend, Brian Hernandez, Jr., 9-2
She finished sixth in her first career stakes start, the Shantei Lanerie Memorial Overnight stakes at Fair Grounds on Feb. 8, her last start. Today will be her second career start over the surface. Prior to that, she finished in the money in three of her last four races, including her first career win in a maiden special weight race at Ellis Park on Aug. 17, her second career start. Her last start here will help the cause today.
Verdict: The pick
#2, Sconsin, Declan Carroll, 3-1
She has just two starts in her career, highlighted by a win in her last start here in a maiden special weight race on Feb. 17 by a half-length as the third betting choice. Declan Carroll has the ride for trainer Greg Foley.
#6, Ain’t No Elmers, Adam Beschizza, 9-5
Just one career start but she made it count with a whopping 6 ½ length win as the second choice in a maiden special weight race here on Feb. 15. Adam Beschizza is back in the saddle for trainer Bret Calhoun. Obviously comes in here in good form, but can she repeat?
