This filly showed speed in her debut while finishing third in a key race where the top two finishers have come back to win. Trainer Richard Mandella os 32% going from dirt to turf and this 3-year-old is bred to love the distance by Tapit and the fabulous filly Dreaming of Anna.

It could be a big night for trainer Richard Mandella and jockey Flavien Prat as they team up here again. This gelding showed speed against better and drops to the bottom of the maiden claiming ranks. He might hold a class edge here.
