#9 MISCHIEVOUS DREAM (8-1) stalked from the outside post and graduated by a length at this course and distance vs. New York-bred company July 19. She projects a similar trip in this event, and should offer value for Christophe Clement.  

#6 Tobys Heart (1-1) romped from off the pace in her Churchill Downs turf debut at this distance June 4. Jose Ortiz takes the call and she is a strong threat if she duplicates that effort or improves at all. 

#8 Amanzi Yimpilo (8-1) made the lead from the inside post in her turf sprint bow at Gulfstream Park June 10, and she turned away her pace rival and scored comfortably by 2-1/2 lengths as the strong favorite. Irad Ortiz Jr. wins races with Wesley Ward, and the $300k Keeneland sales grad drew outside the other speed this time. 

#4 Quinoa Tiffah (12-1) earned a quality speed figure in her winning debut at Gulfstream Park, and was no threat in the local Schuyerville (G3) last time. She switches to turf in her second start after a three month layoff, and dam has produced two turf winners. She can spice up the exotics.
