Juddmonte’s Grade 1-winning homebred Juliet Foxtrot (GB) leads a field of 11 fillies and mares that were entered in Saturday night’s Grade 3, $150,000 Mint Julep at Churchill Downs.

The 1 1/16-mile Mint Julep, run over the Matt Winn turf course, is carded as Race 9 with a post time of 10:11 p.m. EDT. The 11-race Downs After Dark program gets underway at 6 p.m.

Juliet Foxtrot, trained by Brad Cox, cruised to a two-length victory in the April 10 Jenny Wiley (G1) at Keeneland. The daughter of Dansili (GB) was transferred to the care of Cox in 2019 from European-based conditioner Charles Hills. Since arriving stateside, Juliet Foxtrot has run some of her best races, including victories in the 2019 Modesty (G3) and the 2020 Gallorette (G3).

The six-time winner will be ridden by Tyler Gaffalione from post No. 2.

Other top horses that entered the Mint Julep are Robert and Lawana Low’s four-time stakes heroine She’sonthewarpath and Stonestreet Stables’ $150,000 Indiana Grand Stakes winner Hendy Woods.
