No. 4 Goin’ Good (4-1) usually runs her race for Brad Cox. She landed a favorable middle post, and her new pilot Joe Rocco Jr. shows a profit on turf. She might stalk the pace and make the first run. 

No. 8 Change of Control (3-1) completed the superfecta at 35-1 odds in the Jaipur (G1) June 11. She is winless in five stakes attempts this year and was on the wrong end of the win photo in two of those events. She won multiple turf sprint stakes races last year and reconnects with her winning pilot Colby Hernandez. 

No. 10 Minaun (8-1) moves to the Brendan Walsh barn and she ran well in all five previous turf sprint attempts. Look for her to make an impact in the stretch under Irad Ortiz Jr. 

No. 1 Richies Great Girl (8-1) is a fresh, consistent and versatile turf sprinter for Larry Rivelli. Her winning pilot Jareth Loveberry should have running style options from the inside post. 

No. 7 Jeanie B (5-1) is a competent turf sprinter now conditioned by Cam Gambolati. She will probably attend the pace.
