Filimbi (8/5) will try to make amends after flopping at short odds in Grade 3 Hillsborough Stakes March 7 at Tampa in her last start. The Bill Mott trained mare bobbled at the start and never got on track, fading in the stretch to finish fifth. The race was Filimbi’s 2015 debut and her first start since winning the Grade 2 Goldikova impressively November 2 at Santa Anita. Filimbi, a five year-old daughter of Mizzen Mast, has won 6 of 14 career starts for earnings of $390,763.
Ball Dancing primed for big effort
Ball Dancing also exits the Hillsborough where she finished second, a length and a half behind winner Stephanie’s Kitten. The Chad Brown trainee has won 3 of 8 career starts including the Grade 2 Sand’s Point Stakes at Belmont. Ball Dancing was beaten just under a length on soft going in the Grade 1 QE II Cup at Keeneland in October. Like Filimbi, Ball Dancing will be making her second start of 2015.
Outsider has controlling speed
Eden Prairie (10/1) projects as the most likely pace-setter in a field devoid of early speed. The Neil Pessin trainee has shown the ability to route effectively in her last three starts, winning a pair of listed stakes races at Fair Grounds. Regular jockey Florent Geroux has the call breaking from post eight.
