SMILING TIGER is one of the hot sire first time on the turf right now (Clubhouse Ride is the other) with a 19% first out winners and both of the top two horses are by that sire. GRINNINGEARTOEAR has a bit more turf on the bottom side and trainer Brian Koriner knows his way around a turf sprinter. GODDESS APHRODITE is moving up in class but trainer Peter Miller knows a lot about turf sprinters (21% winners) so she is worth a couple bucks.
