Las Vegas, NV - The Grade 3 Boiling Springs Stakes comes our way from Monmouth Park this Saturday, June 23rd. Three year old fillies will be after a share of the $100,000 purse when they go 1 1/16 miles on Monmouth's turf track.
A field of nine females have been entered in the Boiling Point that goes as race 11 on Monmouth Park's Saturday card. Post time is 5:48 PM. There is only one graded stakes winner in the field however. Let's take a glance into all nine entries past performances and what we can expect on Saturday.
2012 Boiling Springs Stakes Race Favorites
Somali Lemonade - finished rather disappointing sixth in the Grade 2 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf on November 4th at Churchill Downs to end her 2011 campaign but has looked better in her two starts of 2012 - a fourth as favorite last time out in the Grade 2 Sands Point Stakes at Belmont followed a decent second in the Grade 3 Appalachian Stakes at Keeneland on April 19th. Somali Lemonade does have two wins in her five race career - the Grade 3 JP Morgan Chase Jessamine Stakes in October and a Maiden Special Weight score at Belmont Park on September 11th. Somali Lemonade is fast and is one of two small favorites in the race.
Zultanite - has placed in her last four starts - the last being a decent third as 23-1 long shot in her graded stakes debut. She ended her 2011 campaign with a win in an Allowance Optional Claiming at Aqueduct and so far this year has a second and two third place finishes.
