No. 12 Loyalty (5-2) is a synthetic sprint specialist with a nose for the wire. She easily won both starts at Woodbine this year including the Hendrie Stakes on July 22. She projects a stalking trip from the outside post under her winning pilot Kazushi Kimura. 

No. 7 Roses for Debra (7-2) won all four turf sprint attempts this year including back-to-back stakes tallies. She won multiple all-weather sprints at Presque Isle last year and projects a decent stalking trip under Irad Ortiz Jr. The only knock is the price. 

No. 3 Marissa’s Lady (8-1) always runs her early-pressing race on all-weather ground. She captured both of her starts at this course and distance, and has won five stakes races overall. 

No. 5 Accomplished Girl (5-1) is a sophomore filly with upside. She wired the field in her lone all-weather attempt, and showed a new dimension in a rallying place finish in a turf sprint at Kentucky Downs last time.
