1) a little different
j piotrowski 11/1
Out of the blakentra farm is this five year old INVINCIBLE SPIRIT filly. She come in off a runner up finish last time out at the Grand Caffreys Turf Mare Route where she ran 107 speed over ten furlongs. She has won just three times in twenty-five starts with one coming recently at an allowance race at the end of April. She hopes to build on her recent success but may need a career best performance against this competitive field of nine.
2) miners wife
n lawton 9/1
Out of the shadeed99 farm is this five year old FIORENTE filly. She comes in off back to back races on Poly where she had a win and a runner up finish with both races covering nine furlongs. Her last start on Turf came at an allowance race in February where she ran 105 speed at this same distance. Her record on turf is not stellar as she has finished in the money in just nine of those seventeen starts. She will need her best to compete here today.
j taylor 32/1
Out of the pisano2 farm is this five year old SONGANDAPRAYER filly. She comes in off back to back seventh place finishes at allowance races with and she has only finished in the money once in her last ten starts. She has raced a total of thirty-eight times with all of them coming on Dirt. Owner pisano2 might be hoping that a change to turf may bring some new luck but I think that is too much to ask here against this group.
4) silver way
m kelly 3/1
Out of the bizalls5 farm is this four year old GOLD ALLURE filly. She comes in off a win last time out at the La Pata Daisy Turf Mare Route where she ran big 116 speed at this same distance. She has finished in the money in all but two of her fifteen starts with five wins and eight runner up finishes. She is a deserving favorite here today and will be tough to beat out of the four hole.
5) paying the rent
t kelly 7/2
Out of the sicko3 farm is this five year old STREET SENSE filly. She comes in off a win at the Sadflys Dubai Turf Mare Route where she ran 107 speed over eight and a half furlongs. She has finished in the money in fifteen of nineteen career starts including six wins. She has shown speed over 100 in all but four of her starts and that kind of speed is hard to ignore. She should compete here and is a good bet to hit the board.
6) italian town
m mclendon 5/2
Out of the neonindy farm is this five year old GALILEO filly. She comes in off a runner up finish last time out at the Grade 3 Eastwood where she ran 109 speed. She has amassed more than $500,000 in earnings with three stakes wins contributing greatly to that. She has performed well at this distance previously and should use that experience to find a place on the board.
mj kelly 6/1
Out of the mtkindy farm is this four year old GALILEO filly. She comes in off two disappointing finishes in her last two, a seventh place finish last time out at the Grade 2 MD Distaff and a sixth place finish at an allowance race in the start prior. She comes in well rested after taking a well needed break for the past eight weeks. Owner mtkindy hopes she will respond well to the rest here and find her way back to the board and continue a streak of nine straight 100 plus speed races. She could be in the mix here today.
8) additional costs
b renfroe 9/1
Out of the victoryland farm is this four year old SIYOUNI filly. She comes in off a win last time out at The ESR Trick or Treat Freak Stakes where she ran 112 speed over eight furlongs. She has finished in the money in fourteen of nineteen career starts including five wins. She should like the distance here and with the big speed recently she might be a nice surprise out of the eight hole.
9) georgia swing
g owans 16/1
Out of the alimitos1 farm is this five year old HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE filly. She comes in off a win last time out at an allowance race that covered nine furlongs. She showed nice speed that day posting a 101 following three straight starts on poly. She has bounced around a bit with alimitos1 being her third owner. He has two wins with her since claiming her last August and hopes to add to that total today from post number nine. She will probably need a careerbest to get it done against this group.
