A chestnut daughter of Street Boss purchased for $75,000 as a yearling, she made her career debut at Santa Anita in May and defeated six rivals to break her maiden by 3 ½ lengths. The runner-up in that race came back to win next time out. Kent Desormeaux, aboard for her victory last out, will be back aboard from post position four.

Moment is Right stepping up after sharp debut

Second choice at 3-1 on the morning line is Moment is Right for trainer Wesley Ward. A dark bay daughter of Medaglia d’Oro, she was purchased as a yearling for $190,000.
