On Saturday at Aqueduct, the track will host the 93rd edition of the $400,000 Demoiselle Stakes. The Grade 2 race will be contested at a mile and a sixteenth on the main track and has drawn a field of eight two-year-old fillies.

Angela Renee tops the field as the 2-1 morning line favorite and will be trying to rebound after finishing tenth as the favorite in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1). A juvenile daughter of Bernardini bred and owned by Siena Farm, she has won two of her five career starts for trainer Todd Pletcher. Two starts back, she won the Chandelier (G1) at Santa Anita. John Velazquez will be aboard and they are scheduled to break from post seven.

Jacaranda trying to remain undefeated

Jacaranda is the second choice at 7-2 on the morning line for trainer Michael Hushion. Purchased for $250,000 as a yearling, the chestnut daughter of Congrats is undefeated from two career starts. She was last seen winning the Tempted (G3) at Aqueduct in her first try against stakes company after winning her debut. Jose Ortiz, aboard for both starts to date, has retained the mount and they will break from the outside.

Regally-bred Gap Year going for first stakes win

Also in the field at 4-1 on the morning line is Gap Year for trainer Kiaran Mclaughlin. A bay daughter of Bernardini out of the Grade 1 winning mare Dubai Escapade, she broke her maiden in her third career start last time out at Keeneland as the heavy favorite. Prior to that, she had been third against maiden company and seventh in the Alcibiades (G1). Irad Ortiz, Jr. will be aboard for the first time and they will break from post five.
