Trainer Kenny McPeek has been high on this filly for a while. When asked about the Alabama, he told the TDN’s Mike Kane, “It wouldn’t surprise me if she upset my other filly (Swiss Skydiver).” The question is can Evoutante can live up to McPeek’s expectations. She didn’t break her maiden until April and later won an allowance and finished third in the Ashland. She will need to do more to win the Alabama, but we likely haven’t seen the best of her yet.
