Typically on Sunday you gather around the TV and start watching the gridiron greats. But this Sunday, there is a little more to get excited about.

Take a look at Race #8 on Sunday afternoon. It is the Old Hat Stakes, a very nice G-3 event for 3-year-olds.

Before making your play, take a look at the top tier horse from It is #5Elusive Heat. She is 8-5, and that may be a late gift from Santa.

This is a special filly trained by Kiaran McLaughlin, and handled by Edgar Prado. I know, what more could you ask for?

She has been vacationing at Palm Meadows, and has a “Monster Workout” banner on the form. She also shows moving up in class, but at this stage in the game, who isn’t?

She was last seen at Belmont, drawing away by six lengths as the overwhelming favorite. She drifted a bit, but that is expected from the babies. I think the spot of training, the time to mature, and bringing her right into the New Year. is a sign of great things to come.

She has a 60 speed rating from WinningPonies, and if you take a look at the times of her counterpart Frolic’s Dream, she was moving a bit faster. Now, it is up to you to dial up and make fast cash with this gal. She will be easy to see.  She will be the one on her way to the winners circle.
