2021 La Troienne Stakes Handicapping
An excellent Friday afternoon of racing at Churchill Downs includes five graded-stakes races leading up to the running of the (G1) Kentucky Oaks, and among them is the (G1) La Troienne Stakes for fillies and mares age four and older.
The race has drawn a very competitive field of seven, with four of those listed in single digits in the pre-race odds. They’ll run 1 1/16 miles on the Churchill dirt course.
Odds listed here are provided by Bovada’s racebook.
2021 La Troienne Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Shedaresthedevil Race Odds: 7-5
The 15-1 winner of the 2020 Kentucky Oaks, Shedaresthedevil closed out 2020 by running third in the (G1) Spinster Stakes at Keeneland. She bounced back to open 2021 with a wire-to-wire win in the (G2) Azeri Stakes at Oaklawn Park. In that one she just managed to hold off a very good filly named Letruska to win by a head.
Expect her to go to the lead here and try to run the rest of the field off their feet.
Trainer Brad Cox and jockey Florent Geroux won the La Troienne in 2020 and go for the double.
2021 La Troienne Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Dunbar Road Race Odds: 11-4
Third at odds of 25-1 in the 2020 Breeders’ Cup Distaff, Dunbar Road comes to the La Troienne with 10 in-the-money finishes in 11 lifetime starts, including six wins.
The last of those came in the (G2) Delaware Handicap last July, and she then had two consecutive third-place runs, first in the (G2) Beldame Stakes and then the (G1) BC Distaff. She has been off since the Breeders’ Cup, and so will be making her first start in almost six months.
She’s trained by Chad Brown, Irad Ortiz J. will be in the irons.
2021 La Troienne Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Finite Race Odds: 11-2
Third last out in the (G3) Bayakoa Stakes – albeit only three lengths back of superstar Monomoy Girl – Finite is a versatile filly who can race both up on the pace or come from further back.
She has shown some improvement speed-wise from her three-year-old to four-year old season, and it’s significant that of the three races she has run at Churchill Downs, she has won all three.
Trainer Steve Asmussen and jockey Ricardo Santana Jr. were the winning duo in the 2019 La Troienne.
2021 La Troienne Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Evoutante Race Odds: 7-1
Fourth behind Shedaresthedevil in the Azeri, Evoutante is another with some liking for the Churchill track, with two starts and two wins in Louisville.
The second of those came last November when she closed out her 2020 season with a six-length win in the (G2) Falls City Stakes, where she popped off a very impressive 118 Equibase speed rating, the best in this field.
The trainer is 2010 race winner Bill Mott, while Brian Hernandez Jr. is tapped to ride.
Here’s My 2021 La Troienne Stakes Free Pick.
Based on recent form, Shedaresthedevil is a deserving favourite in here and appears to be a filly that has improved with maturity. However, I do suspect she’ll be bet down even further than her opening odds, and with little value in that I’m going to try and beat her.
I like the fact Evoutante – like Shedaresthedevil – has a win over the track and distance, and I think she needed the Azeri start after a layoff of almost four months to get back up to the form she showed late last season. If she can run the race she did in the Falls City I think she has a shot in here, and I’ll play her for the win.
