Starlet Stakes Betting – Pretty N Cool Heads To The Winner's Circle

Posted by on 12/11/2015 8:53:08 PM

The Starlet Stakes is a Grade-1 race for fillies that are two years old, and for years it was held at Hollywood Park. However, that closed and the race is now held at Los Alamitos Race Course. It has a purse of $300,000 and it is run over 1 1/16 miles on dirt as the Starlet is a prestigious race for those looking to make some noise in their three-year-old campaign.

For a December race, this nine-filly field is very strong and has a number of horses worth watching. But the winner will be Pretty N Cool, which should get the better of Pacific Heat and Street Fancy on Saturday.

What: Horse Betting

When: Saturday, December 12th, 2015; post time 6:58 PM ET

Where: Los Alamitos Race Course, Los Alamitos, CA

Pick: Pretty N Cool

Mama's Sugar broke her maiden on her first try in November, but that has been her only race so far. It was 6 1/2 furlongs on dirt, so the big question here is the distance and if she can handle the extra length of the race. That is a question you should be asking of most of the horses in this field.

Pacific Heat also broke her maiden on her first try in September, then won the non-graded Golden State Juvenile Fillies in October. She hasn't run more than seven furlongs, and she has also been off the track for more than six weeks, but rust shouldn't be a big problem for this filly. She might be one of the favorites on Saturday at Los Alamitos.

Patriotic Diamond finished third at the Golden State Juvenile, which followed a second in her first maiden try and preceded an allowance win. That is three finishes in the money in three starts for this filly, which is pretty impressive. She has run seven furlongs, so let's see how she handles this distance.

Pretty N Cool is also in the running to be a favorite on Saturday after winning three of her first five starts, including the Grade-2 Sorrento in August and the Grade-2 Matron in October. She also finished second at the Grade-1 Del Mar Debutante in September and even a fifth-place run at the non-graded Desi Arnaz Stakes in November shouldn't scare you from this filly.

Stays In Vegas might not be far behind as she has three wins in four starts. The three wins came in non-graded races, but she finished fifth at the Del Mar Debutante, so this is a chance for her to prove she can run against top-notch competition. A win would position Stays In Vegas nicely for her three-year-old campaign.

Street Fancy finished third at the Desi Arnaz in her lone start, which is a solid beginning to her career. There isn't much information out there on Street Fancy, but her pedigree is one of the best in the field as she was sired by Street Sense, which won the 2007 Kentucky Derby and prior to that, the 2006 Breeders' Cup Juvenile.

Surfside Tiara finished fourth at the Desi Arnaz and seventh at the Del Mar Debutante, but she won the non-graded Anoakia in October and needed two tries to break her maiden, finishing second in her first try. She is well experienced, but has never run over seven furlongs like many of these horses. This will be a nice test for this two-year-old filly.

Sutton's Smile has yet to break her maiden in two tries, finishing sixth on her first attempt in July. But then she finished third at the Grade-3 Jimmy Durante Stakes in November. Her top two results have come on turf, so that might be her surface of choice, and she ran a mile in both of those races. A poor result on Saturday and she might be better off sticking with turf.

Treasuring rounds out the field and she needed three attempts to break her maiden, finishing third in her first two tries. Then she finished second to Lucky Folie at the Desi Arnaz, so this filly has some speed and has a promising three-year-old campaign in front of her. Finishing in the money on Saturday would be a very good start for Treasuring.

How It Will Play Out

There are some very good horses in this field, and you should keep an eye on most of them going into 2016. Take Pretty N Cool for the win on Saturday.
