James Spence’s Aubby K, three-length winner of the Inside Information (GII) in her 2013 debut, tops a field of nine fillies and mares that will line up for the Humana Distaff at seven furlongs on the main track.
Trained by Ralph Nicks, Aubby K will be ridden by Edgar Prado as she takes on a field that includes Grade I winner Emma’s Encore.
Owned by Brenda Mercer and Peter Berglar and trained by Hall of Famer Allen Jerkens, Emma’s Encore won the Prioress last August at Saratoga. Third to Aubby K in her most recent start, Emma’s Encore will break from post position four and be ridden by Joe Rocco Jr.
