Sunday’s 9th race from Aqueduct is the $100,000 Tepin Stakes for 3-year-old fillies traveling a mile and a sixteenth on the turf course (Post Time - 3:44 p.m. ET).
#4 INVINCIBLE GAL (2-1) broke slow from the far outside post and passed a trio of runners as a 67-1 outsider in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1) Nov. 6. She was entered in the Jimmy Durante Stakes (G3) at Del Mar Nov. 28 but drew poorly and ends up here instead. Graham Motion’s versatile filly ran well in her first three turf starts and might be classier than these. Jose Ortiz rides back.
#10 Island Treasure (6-1) showed marked improvement in her turf route maiden win on yielding ground at Belmont Park second time out. She could easily continue to improve for the productive Lezcano/McGaughey team.
#2 Lovestruck (7-5) earned a quality late pace rating in her winning Saratoga turf route debut Sept. 7. She should get pace to chase and is a solid late threat if she improves at all second time out.
#4 to win
