The undefeated Javiera will have a hot trainer in her corner Friday night when she takes on Golden Mischief and Perfect Prediction in the $50,000 Take Charge Brandi at Delta Downs.
Golden Mischief could go favored on the strength of her local win in the $100,000 My Trusty Cat in October. Perfect Prediction invades from Fair Grounds off a runner-up finish in an allowance Jan. 13.
The Take Charge Brandi, named for the champion who won the Delta Downs Princess, is a seven-furlong race for 3-year-old fillies. It will be run around two turns on the six-furlong track in Vinton, La.
Javiera hails from the barn of trainer Efren Loza Jr., who is wintering at Delta for the first time. His barn has gone 15 for 28 (54 percent) at Delta. Javiera has contributed two wins to the cause, a maiden special weight and a second-level allowance, the latter at 6 1/2 furlongs, which is two turns at Delta.
