Hot Dixie Chick, who is owned by Jess Jackson's wife Barbara Banke, started off her career with a runner-up finish at Churchill Downs on May 14. Since then, she has rattled off two straight wins including a blow out win in the Schuylerville last month here at Saratoga.
Today, Hot Dixie Chick will run in one of the higher profile races for 2-year-old fillies, the Spinaway. (Race set to start at 5:56 PM ET.) On paper, the race seems to be a one horse race. Her average winning margin is six and her last two Beyer Speed Figures are 100 and 103.
It's highly unlikely that Hot Dixie Chick will become another Rachel Alexandra. Rachel is frankly a once in a lifetime horse. But it's fun to speculate and dream a bit about how good "The Chick" will be.
Her only competition for best 2-year-old filly is the well-bred Mi Sueno, who captured the Del Mar Debutante Saturday. If they meet in the Breeders' Cup, it should be a wonderful matchup.
