Plum Pretty 2-1 Choice in Ladies' Classic

Plum Pretty Ky Oaks top story.

A field of ten has been assembled for Friday's Breeders' Cup Ladies' Classic at Churchill Downs and Plum Pretty is the 2-1 morning line favorite.

Plum Pretty exits a romping wire-to-wire score in the G2 Cotillion at Parx and she captured the G1 Kentucky Oaks at Churchill Downs on May 6. The Bob Baffert trainee will break from post eight under Rafael Bejarano.

Second choice on the morning line is G1 Alabama winner Royal Delta. Bill Mott's talented daughter of Empire Maker exits a distant place finish to Havre de Grace in the Belmont mud. She also won the G2 Black-Eyed Susan at Pimlico earlier this year. 

It's Tricky, another three-year-old filly, is the third choice at 5-1. She triumphed in the G1 Acorn and G1 Coaching Club American Oaks in June and July. In her last two outings, she was a well-beaten second behind Royal Delta and Plum Pretty in the G1 Alabama and G2 Cotillion.

Plum Pretty is not the only pace player entered. Two-time grade one winner Ask the Moon figures to make her presence felt throughout under her favorite pilot Javier Castellano. She was last seen finishing 6th in the G1 Lady's Secret at Santa Anita.

Ultra Blend looks like the best older mare in this event. The Southern California shipper has not finished out of the trifecta since June 5, 2009. Her biggest score this year was the G1 Clement L. Hirsch at Del Mar in August.

The Ladies' Classic field is competed by Miss Match, Pachattack, Satans Quick Chick, Medaglia d'Amour, and Super Espresso.
