Decked Out tops the field as the morning line favorite at odds of 2-1 for trainer Keith Desormeaux. 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. She made her first start at Gulfstream Park in May and romped by 8 ½ lengths without ever being asked. She will have Joel Rosario in the irons for the first time and they are scheduled to break from post position two as she makes her stakes debut.

Little Cherie trying for two wins in a row 


Also in the field at morning line odds of 5-1 is Little Cherie for trainer Michael Maker. A bay daughter of Pleasantly Perfect bred and owned by Concepts Unlimited Stable, she will be making her first try against stakes competition after breaking her maiden at first asking in April. She defeated eight rivals by 1 ½ lengths with a move from off of the pace. Mike Smith will be aboard for the first time and they will break from the outside post.
