Fanticola has been tabbed as the morning line favorite at odds of 5-2 for trainer Philip D’Amato. A five-year-old daughter of Silent Name, she has been on the board in sixteen of her seventeen starts and is a five-time winner. She earned the first graded stakes win of her career with a game victory by a neck in the Royal Heroine Stakes (G2) at Santa Anita. Joe Talamo will be back aboard and they will break from post position three.
