Stakes – Purse $100,000
Restricted to 3 Year Old Fillies
5 Furlongs on Turf


1) redello
kingspark farm
d anderson                                          9/2

Out of the kingspark farm is this three year old INTELLO filly out of the Sim Mare HIGHLAND RED. Our youngest competitor won her debut race on Tibb’s Eve when she busted 79 speed to beat the field of seven and win by just half a length. She should hold her own against this field and could be a nice long shot pick to find a spot on the board.

3) slew of bunnies
tfon16 farm
d esperado                                          8/1

Out of the tfon16 farm is this three year old DECORATED KNIGHT filly out of the Sim Mare CAPZIG. She comes in off back to back runner up finishes and seems to have a bit of a bridesmaid complex as she has seven 2nd place finishes in her ten career starts. She will need career best speed today if she wants to find a spot on the board against this bunch.

5) vengeance wind
buccaneerrbay farm
r pollard                                  4/1

Out of the buccaneerrbay farm is this three year old scratch bred CHURCHILL ( x ZENSATIONAL x NIJINSKY 2ND) filly. She has finished in the money in four of her eight career starts including one at the “Closebutnocigar Turf Juvenile Fillies” where she came from way back to win by a length.  She may have more success at a mile or more and a switch to that distance might be worth a shot in her upcoming races.

7) arauntza
flagdown farm
o parker                                  7/2

Out of the flagdown farm is this three year old RECOLETOS filly out of the Sim Mare PISCEAN DREAM. She has finished in the money in eight of her nine starts including two Stakes wins, and a victory at the G3 “Princess Margo”. She stalked the leaders last time out then moved up between the competition on the backstretch to win by less than a length. She has shown good speed to date and should have enough to be in the mix out of the seven hole.

4) sea three
sleworama farm
s robertson                                          5/2

Out of the sleworama farm is this three year old SEA THE MOON filly out of the Sim Mare GREEK RANSOM. She comes in off three straight Stakes starts where she finished off the board with the most recent coming just a few weeks back. A busy schedule of twelve starts in the last eight months may be taking its toll on this young filly and some extra rest may result in more consistent winning results. The odds maker has picked her as the favorite.

2) trip wires
schofielddowns farm
cl johnson                                5/1

Out of the schoefielddowns  farm is this three year old scratch bred NATIONAL DEFENSE ( X TRIPPI x EXCEED AND EXCEL) filly.  She has finished in the money in all six of her career starts with two wins and two runner ups at this distance in her past four. Last time out she took home the “Italian Wood Turf Juvenile Filies” when she impressed with 86 speed and a late dash. Should keep her perfect record intact here and will find a spot on the board.

6) haaminmy
cornelius farm
r bokie                                     9/1

Out of the cornelius farm is this three year old THE GURKHA filly out of the Sim Mare BELTRAM. She comes in undefeated having won her first two career starts with the most recent being a 4.5 furlong Allowance race in Minnesota where she barely broke a sweat while running 60 speed. She will face better competition here and may need some more seasoning to prepare to battle against a competitive field like this.
