Ingrid Mason will saddle Sarah Sis as the favorite in the wide open field at odds of 7-2 on the morning line. A dark bay daughter of Sharp Humor, she has won four of her nine starts and rebounded as the heavy favorite to win the Panther Stakes last time out after getting vanned off in the Kentucky Oaks (G1). She will be trying to earn the second graded stakes victory of her career and will have Julio Feliz, her regular rider, aboard from post position two.

Paige making her second start off the bench

Second choice at 4-1 on the morning line is Paige for trainer Donnie Von Hemel. A chestnut daughter of Sky Mesa, she has been on the board in all five career starts and will be trying to earn the first stakes win of her career. She returned off of a seven-month layoff to finish second in an optional claiming race at Churchill Downs last time out and will break from post position five under Shaun Bridgmohan as she tries for her third career victory.

Sweet Success trying for second straight win

Also in the field at morning line odds of 5-1 is Sweet Success for trainer George Arnold, II. A bay daughter of Candy Ride, she has won two of her six starts and will be stretching out to two turns after winning an allowance race as the heavy favorite at Churchill Downs over a sloppy track. She is going for the first stakes victory of her career and is scheduled to break from the rail under Ricardo Santana, Jr.
