Post 1 – TAP STREET DEPUTY
Odds – 8/1
Owner – larrcamp30
Pedigree – TAPIT x STREET CRY x DEPUTY MINISTER – Scratch Bred
Tap Street Deputy earned her G2 badge in her last start in The Lake Flacid. The win brings her earnings to over $450,000 in 12 starts. She has also won the Lawn Mower Again Turf Filly Route and two allowance races. Her top speed of 108 puts here as a contender here.
Post 2 – SECRET KITTEN
Odds – 8/1
Owner – rac1
Pedigree – FASTNET ROCK (AUS) x KRIS S. x MR. PROSPECTOR – Scratch Bred
Secret Kitten is the lone millionaire in the field. She went on a 3-race win streak starting with the Rock Of Miswaki Turf Juvenile Fillies, the G3 Triangular Star Stakes was her next accomplishment and then she capped the streak with the G1 2018 Equinics. She looks to have her confidence back after her last start. She may need a little more speed earn a top finish here.
Post 3 – THUNDERBONE MAGIC
Odds – 32/1
Owner – whalebones
Pedigree – MAGICIAN x HARLINGTON x DANZIG – Dam Bred (THUNDERBONES)
Thunderbone Magic has 5 wins and earnings of $143,000. Her last win was the Lauras Parade Turf Filly Route in March. She has yet to finish in the top 3 in a graded race. She will need to show quite a bit of improvement to finish in the top 3 here.
Post 4 – STORM SPARK
Odds – 5/1
Owner – kevoman9
Pedigree – DANCE IN THE DARK x SMART STRIKE x DANZIG – Based On (BAD STORM RAINBOW)

She has also won the Extremely The Glen Turf Filly and Blackeyed Peace Turf Filly Route. If she can return to or improve on her top speed of 109 she will be in the mix.
Post 5 – JUST CRAZY LV
Odds – 12/1
Owner – xixa3
Pedigree – JUST A WAY x INVINCIBLE SPIRIT (IRE) x STORMY ATLANTIC – Dam Bred (DISSENT)
Just Crazy LV has earnings of $257,000 in 11 starts. She won the Prime Cheapskate Turf Filly Special in her last start. Her best finish in a graded contest was a 3rd in the G1 The Irish 1000 Guineas over a yielding surface. She tries G1 competition here for a second time hoping the 9 furlongs will be the right distance for her.
Post 6 – MY LADY APPROACH
Odds – 13/1
Owner – dkstables11
Pedigree – NEW APPROACH (IRE) x NUREYEV x FORTY NINER – Scratch Bred
My Lady Approach has 4 wins in 11 starts with earnings of $365,000. She has wins in the River Nicole Turf Filly Route and Societys Pye Turf Juvenile Fillies. She has 5 attempts at the graded level with a 2nd and 2 3rd place finishes. She tries the G1 level for the 2nd time here. She is dropping back in distance after running 3rd in the 10-furlong G3 The Nanette.
Post 7 – JUTLANDIA CLEO
Odds – 9/1
Owner – kimugle3
Pedigree – SAVABEEL (AUS) x TEOFILO x DUBAWI (IRE)
Jutlandia Cleo has 10 starts with earnings of $333,000. Her stakes win came on a good surface in the Pam Flint Turf Filly route. Her last starts were at the G2 level where she finished a close 2nd in The Jersey City and Pioneer Boulevard Cup. Her speeds have been improving in her last starts and should be competitive here.
Post 8 – LEVER SERENA
Odds – 8/1
Owner – cencall
Pedigree – SEA THE STARS x KINGMAMBO x SADLER’S WELLS – Scratch Bred
Lever Serena is another that has been in the money in each start. She has earned $643,000 in 9 starts. She earned her G1 badge in the Dell Web Oaks, which was her only stakes win, in her last start.
Her top speed of 111 is tops in the field and she may need all of that or more to get the win here.
Post 9 – SING YER HEART OUT
Odds – 9/1
Owner – foxhold
Pedigree – HEART’S CRY (JPN) x MEDICEAN (GB) x DANZIG
Sing Yer Heart Out has 6 wins and $336,000 in earnings. She has 4 listed stakes wins in the Canada Day, Miss Maraud Turf Filly Route, Alys Chant Turf Juvenile Fillies and Eazy Money Turf Juvenile Fillies. She has 2 attempts in graded races without finishing in the money. She will need to improve on her best effort to be in the mix.
Post 10 – INVINCIBLE PONY
Odds – 14/1
Owner – broohar
Pedigree – INVINCIBLE SPIRIT (IRE) x KRIS S. x SEATTLE SLEW – Scratch Bred
Invincible Pony has 4 wins and earnings of $253,000. She has a G3 win in The Me Me Me Handicap and a listed in the La Stormy Turf Filly Route. Her best finish since her win in March is a 2nd last time out. She ran a 106 but looks to be facing much tougher here.
Post 11 – PHANTOM CADET
Odds – 8/1
Owner – cadetrx
Pedigree – SEA THE STARS x MAKFI (GB) x GIANT’S CAUSEWAY – Dam Bred (ACONITUM CADET)
Phantom Cadet has earnings of $738,000 in 12 starts. She has a G1 win in The Irish 1000 Guineas and a listed stakes in the Doctor Caliope Turf Filly Route. She has two allowance wins at todays distance. This will be her second race since June. She also looks to be versatile winning from midpack as well as on the front end. Her top speed puts her in the mix and she might show improvement in her second since her break.
Post 12 – THE COOL CROWD
Odds – 12/1
Owner – mtkgrs3
Pedigree – DUBAWI (IRE) x MONTJEU x A.P. INDY – Dam Bred (DIVINA BELLESA)
The Cool Crowd comes into the race with the fewest wins with 2 and earnings of $358,000. That record is a little misleading since she has shown huge improvement since her race in March. Her speeds have gone from the low 90’s to 111 in her last in the G1 Dell Webb Oaks where she just missed by ¼ length.
I believe she is a contender and at her odds may be the one to bet.
Post 13 – WHINE FOR FOUR
Odds – 10/1
Owner – 1nagstable
Pedigree – CITY ZIP x DYNAFORMER x DEPUTY MINISTER – Dam Bred (DYNAMIN)
Whine For Four has earned 6 wins in 11 starts with earnings of $283,000. She has a G3 win in the Si’ Senorita Special and in the listed Rock River Quest Turf Filly Route. Her last 2 races have been at the G2 level where she finished 4th and improved to a 3rd in her last missing by ½ length. Her top speed puts her into the mix but is trying the G1 level for the first time.
