The Grade 1, $750,000 TVG Acorn is likely to feature the second and third-place finishers from the Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks.


My Miss Sophia, who finished second behind Untapable in the 1 1/8-mile Kentucky Oaks, is set to turn back to a mile in the Acorn. The last time the daughter of Unbridled's Song went a mile, she took a maiden race at Gulfstream Park by 11 lengths.


Unbridled Forever, third-place finisher in the Kentucky Oaks, has shown an affinity for one-turn racing. The daughter of Unbridled Song broke her maiden by 5 ¼ lengths at Churchill Downs, running seven furlongs in an eye-catching 1:21.91 seconds.


The field is also likely to include Aqua Regia, Artemis Agrotera, Fashion Plate, Fifyshadesofgold, House Rules, Lady Paradime, Our Amazing Rose, Sweet Reason, Sweet Whiskey and Vero Amore. La Madrina, Risque Reality, and She's a Tiger are possible.
