Curalina and I’m a Chatterbox Rematch in Grade 1 Alabama

Category : News - Sat 22/08/2015 - 14:29 EDT

Curalina is the 7/5 morning line favorite despite needing a controversial disqualification decision to earn her victory over I’m a Chatterbox (5/2) in the Grade 1 Coaching Club American Oaks July 26 at Saratoga. The victory was Curalina’s second consecutive grade 1 score after winning the Acorn Stakes June 6 at Belmont. The Todd Pletcher-trainee has been victorious in 4 of 5 career starts with her lone blemish a second-place effort in her debut. The daughter of two-time Horse of the Year Curlin will be ridden by John Velazquez and break from post 2.

Chatterbox ready to make noise

I’m a Chatterbox (5/2), has repeatedly proven her mettle for trainer Larry Jones reeling off three consecutive stakes wins earlier in the year at Fair Grounds, including a score in the Grade 2 Fair Grounds Oaks. In her last two starts, the daughter of Munnings finished third in the Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks before the DQ episode in the Coaching Club American Oaks. Regular pilot Florent Geroux will take the mount breaking from post 4.

Maria looks for bounce-back 

Kentucky Oaks heroine Lady Maria (5/1), also trained by Jones, will look to rebound after a disappointing fifth-place effort in the Grade 3 Delaware Oaks July 11. Lady Maria also won the Grade 1 Ashland Stakes in April and has won 4 of 9 career starts. Journeyman jockey Kerwin Clark retains the mount aboard the talented filly.
