Enlightened Trails update: Prairie Gold Lassie Stakes

I’m giving myself a very busy Saturday, with the usual handicapping of 6 races at Emerald Downs, plus the daily Del Mar contest race (new meet begins Thursday), and the monthly contest offered by The Racing Biz, with action at both Laurel and Delaware.  Plus I plan to cover the latest on the Enlightened Trails, with races at Wyoming Downs and Prairie Meadows. I’ll offer analysis of the Prairie Gold Lassie Stakes here:
This race is 5.5 furlongs, worth 75k for top 2YO fillies. Here’s my top 3 contenders:

Who’s Smokin is the early 2nd choice via morning line but first in my book.  She won a 39k filly maiden sprint in her first start, here on 5/21.  The 85 Brisnet is higher than the par for this track and easily the best of this field. That typed, it might be hard to repeat that effort. The layoff should not be a concern; she’s posted 2 bullet works in 3 total since that race, and has waited the longest of these to stretch out. 23.2 turn time in that debut ties for best last out of the field too.
Beccalou’s Dream won her debut as well, 5 sloppy furlongs at Evangeline Downs on June 12, 22k maiden race. Best speed numbers per pace, earning 96 Brisnet score at 1st call.  Adds Bute for the first time. Last work was 7th of 27, 3 furlongs in 36 breezing seconds. I don’t have her ranked in odds but will not be surprised to see her in the top 3.

Diggin Deep is the big price at 15-1 ML.3rd in a 33k debut maiden race here on 7/4. Only factoring her via the good AWD numbers (Daaher/The Lady Excavate)
Suggested odds:  Cake Baby 3-5 (overlay), Who’s Smokin 2-1, Thievery and Diggin Deep, 30-1
