On Sunday at Del Mar, the featured race is the $100,000 Betty Grable Stakes. Restricted to California-bred fillies and mares, the seven-furlong contest has drawn a field of eight.
My Monet has been tabbed as the morning line favorite in the wide open field at odds of 3-1 for trainer Ricky Agarie. A four-year-old daughter of Decarchy, she has been on the board in eleven of her eighteen starts and is a five-time winner. She will be trying to earn the first stakes victory of her career and was last seen finishing fourth in the Zenyatta Stakes (G1). Santiago Gonzalez will be aboard and they will break from post position five.
Wild in the Saddle to return to stakes form
Second choice at morning line odds of 7-2 is Wild in the Saddle, one of two fillies in the race for trainer Richard Baltas. A six-year-old daughter of Silic (FR), the bay mare is a multiple stakes winner with nine total victories to her credit. She has three wins from seven starts this year and is trying to move forward after finishing sixth in the Zenyatta Stakes (G1). Mario Gutierrez will be in the irons and they will break from post position four.
Graded stakes winner Harlington’s Rose a threat
Also in the field at morning line odds of 8-1 is Harlington’s Rose for trainer Steve Knapp. A four-year-old daughter of Harlington, she is a four-time career winner and notched her first graded stakes victory earlier in the year in the Las Flores Stakes (G3). Since then, her form has been inconsistent and she is trying to improve off a third-place finish last time out. Joe Talamo will be aboard and they will break from post position seven.
