Though she hasn’t raced since the Feb. 2 Busanda S. at Aqueduct, she managed to move up this past weekend thanks to what happened in the Big A’s Busher Invitational. The winner was Water White, who, when last seen, finished second in the Busanda, 7 1/2 lengths behind “Harvey.” Trainer Bill Mott is being particularly patient with this one and plans to give her two months off between races before bringing her back in the Apr. 4 GII Gazelle S. Meanwhile, she is back in Florida with Mott’s string at Payson Park. Distance figures to be her strong suit, so much so that she may actually be better at a mile-and-a-quarter.
