Lear's Princess Set for G3 Hillsborough Stakes
March is known for the NCAA basketball tournament. Old rivalries are rekindled, and new ones are born. For Lear's Princess, she will renew her rivalry with Dreaming of Anna in the $175,000 Hillsborough Stakes(G3) on Saturday at Tampa Bay Downs. With two heavyweights like Lear's Princess and Dreaming Of Anna entered, only four other entrants sought to challenge the top pair of race mares. The small field will create an interesting dynamic if a solid pace does not develop. However, Lear's Princess could not be doing better. Traffic trouble should not be an issue with the size of the field, and she is making her second start off the layoff.
Last time we lost by a nose. This time we add an extra sixteenth of a mile to the distance. We hope to turn the tables and have a reason to celebrate our own version of "March Madness."
