1) kymar autumn
b carlson 13/1
Out of the villagedowns farm is this five year old EXPLOIT mare. She comes in off back to back fourth place finishes that followed a win at an allowance race in Pennsylvania where she ran 93 speed over four and a half furlongs. Has finished in the money in four of six races since new ownership took over back in December of last year. Makes the jump to Graded Stakes for the first time here today and will need career best 100+ speed to compete with this group of seven.
2) awesome fighter
v jennings 5/1
Out of the romans farm is this five year old AWESOME BET mare. She comes in off back to back wins with the most recent coming at an allowance race in Kansas where she ran 107 speed over seven furlongs. Had a previous streak of six straight wins as a two year old and has won ten times in her career. Tries Graded Stakes for the first time here but comes in well rested and should like the distance.
3) the harbour master
w cahill 7/5
Out of the totje farm is this four year old ORB filly. She comes in off in five straight wins with four of those coming at Stakes Races and the most recent coming at the Seawood Dirt Mare Dash where she ran impressive 114 speed at this same distance. Has finished in the money in sixteen of her seventeen starts including ten wins with her only miss coming at her only other previous Graded Stakes as she finished fifth at the Natural Springs Stakes to finish the 2017 campaign . Will deservingly go off as the favorite here and should have no trouble finding a spot on the board.
4) atom storm
h desitter 4/1
Out of the wolflodge farm is this four year old TAPIT filly. She comes in off back to back wins with the most recent coming at the Sticky Diamond Turf Mare Sprint where she ran 106 speed over seven and a half furlongs. Is closing in on one million dollars in earnings with success at Graded Stakes contributing greatly to that total. She is a two time winner at Grade 2 and had a runner up finish at Grade 1 The Priceless. Tries Grade 3 for the first time here today and should be in the mix out of the four hole.
5) lincoln library
c shoemaker 3/1
Out of the handshob77 farm is this four year old TAPIT filly. She comes in off a fifth place finish at the Jello Hanna Turf Mare Sprint where she ran 97 speed over six furlongs on the turf. Has recorded seven wins in fifteen starts with all but one coming on dirt and one coming at Grade 3 as she took home The Victorious Ride almost a year ago to this date. Should be in the mix here today and could find a spot on the board out of the five hole.
be smith 8/1
Out of the deeprock25 farm is this four year old HUSSONET filly. She comes in off a seventh place finish at the Grade 3 Cracked Peanuts Sprint where she ran 99 speed over six furlongs. Had a runner up in the previous start at the Grade 3 Flying Pig Sprint. Has failed to hit plus 100 speed in any of her starts in 2018 and will need speed here today to compete with this group.
7) lyght rate
n wilks 18/1
Out of the lostkey1 farm is this six year old LANGFUHR mare. She comes in off seven straight starts finishing off the board with the most recent resulting in a ninth place finish at this distance at an allowance race in Sweden. Hopes that a return to dirt, after three straight on turf, will help to get things back on track. Unfortunately I think she will be overmatched here and it may be time to retire her to the barn.
