Royal Delta drew post six and was made the 9-5 morning line favorite in Friday's Grade I Breeders' Cup Ladies' Classic at Santa Anita Park. She won the 2011 Ladies' Classic at Churchill Downs.
Royal Delta reportedly had a bumpy ride on her way to California and was treated for an abrasion on her rear end.
My Miss Aurelia and Awesome Feather, a pair of undefeated fillies, will try to dethrone the defending champion. The former exits a game victory in the G1 Cotillion at Parx and the latter cruised in a minor flat mile stakes affair at Belmont Park on Sept 20.
Speedy 3-year-old filly Questing drew post four and will probably attempt a wire job.
The eight horse field is completed by Grace Hall, Class Included, Include Me Out, and Love and Pride.
