Jenny Wiley Runners to Reunite in Just A Game

The Grade 1, $750,000 Longines Just A Game is likely to boast a deep, competitive field of filly and mare turf runners.

Trained by Christophe Clement for Patricia Generazio, Discreet Marq, who worked five furlongs in 1:00.62 Friday, leads the probables for the one-mile race. The 4-year-old daughter of Discreet Cat made her 2014 debut in the Grade 1 Jenny Wiley, in which she finished second behind another likely Just A Game starter, Hard Not to Like. Her 2013 campaign featured a win in the Grade 1 Del Mar Oaks, as well as second-place finishes in the Grade 1 Garden City and Grade 1 Matriarch.

Also exiting the Jenny Wiley and likely for the Just A Game is last year's winner, Stephanie's Kitten. The 5-year-old mare finished eighth in the Jenny Wiley in her 2014 debut; she had been off since July 27 when she finished third in the Grade 1 Diana at Saratoga Race Course.

The runner-up from last year's Just A Game, Better Lucky, is probable to enter the starting gate again this year. Trained by Tom Albertrani for Godolphin Stable, the 5-year-old Ghostzapper mare has won a pair of Grade 1's in her career: the 2013 edition of the First Lady and the 2012 edition of the Matriarch.

Others likely for the Just A Game are Coffee Clique, Dame Marie, Filimbi, Hard Not to Like, Somali Lemonade, Strathnaver and Waterway Run. Ready Signal and Unlimited Budget are possible.
