2021 Winning Colors Stakes Handicapping
Two of the top female sprinters in North America go head-to-head on Saturday in the feature at Churchill, the (G3) Winning Colors Stakes.
Named after the 1988 Kentucky Derby champion filly, the Winning Colors is open to fillies and mares age four and older. They’ll race six furlongs on the Churchill dirt track.
Odds listed here are morning line odds from the Churchill track handicapper.
2021 Winning Colors Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Frank’s Rockette Race Odds: 6-5
With 13 lifetime starts to her name, Frank’s Rockette has been first or second 12 times, with seven wins. The only blemish on her record occurred in the 2020 Breeders’ Cup Sprint where she took on males and raced wide throughout to finish 11th in the field of 14.
She’s made two starts so far in 2021, both at Oaklawn Park, where she won the American Beauty Stakes and ran second last out in the Carousel Stakes.
The trainer is Bill Mott, Florent Geroux will be in the saddle.
2021 Winning Colors Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Sconsin Race Odds: 8-5
With seven in-the-money finishes and three wins in 11 lifetime starts, Sconsin doesn’t have the gaudy record of Frank’s Rockette, but she is just shy of putting a half-million dollars in the bank.
She’s without a win in her last three, including a fourth-place run in the 2020 Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint, but was second last out in the (G1) Derby City Distaff at Churchill. She actually has had much of her success under the Twin Spires, with two wins and a second in four starts in Louisville.
Her trainer is Greg Foley, jockey Tyler Gaffalione will be in the irons.
2021 Winning Colors Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Bayerness Race Odds: 5-1
A daughter of 2014 Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Bayern, Bayerness comes into this race off an allowance-level win going six furlongs on the Churchill dirt.
That late April race was her first start in almost seven months, as previously she had run sixth in the 2020 (G1) Kentucky Oaks back in September. Besides the Oaks, she has made three previous graded-stakes starts but is still looking for her first win at the highest level.
Up-and-coming trainer Cherie DeVaux is also looking for her first lifetime graded-stakes win, while jockey Brian Hernandez Jr. won the Winning Colors in both 2017 and 2018.
2021 Winning Colors Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Rising Seas Race Odds: 10-1
Speedy Rising Seas is another that has yet to break through in the graded-stakes ranks, with her best results coming at the allowance optional claiming level.
Still, she is likely to be up pushing the pace if not on the outright lead early and could hang on to get a piece of the money. Last out she was beaten just a neck going seven furlongs on the Churchill dirt and so gets a cut back in distance here. Prior to that she was a winner at 6 1/2 furlongs at Keeneland.
The trainer is Ben Colebrook, 2020 race winner Corey Lanerie gets the call to ride.
Here’s My 2021 Winning Colors Stakes Free Pick.
While Sconsin is a talented filly in her own right, there’s little doubt Frank’s Rockette is the class of this field and it’s likely her race to lose. In a short field you can expect she’ll get her usual ideal trip stalking just off the pace and then take over as they move down the stretch.
She’s the win pick, and I’ll try to get some value by using Bayerness underneath in the exacta.
