Dame Dorothy tops the field as the morning line favorite at odds of 9-5 for trainer Todd Pletcher. Purchased for $390,000 by celebrity chef Bobby Flay, the four-year-old daughter of Bernardini has won six of her eight starts and will be making her first start since a game victory by a neck in the Humana Distaff (G1) at Churchill Downs. She will be trying to earn her third victory of the year and will have Javier Castellano in the irons from post position four.

La Verdad going for third straight win this year

Second choice at 2-1 on the morning line is La Verdad for trainer Linda Rice. A New York-bred daughter of Yes It’s True, the five-year-old mare has won twelve of her eighteen starts and is a perfect two for two against graded stakes competition this year. She has been training forwardly since her last victory in the Vagrancy (G3) and will have regular rider Jose Ortiz aboard from post position six.

Street Story aiming for second consecutive stakes win

Also in the field at morning line odds of 6-1 is Street Story for trainer Steve Asmussen. A four-year-old daughter of Street Cry (IRE), she has won five of her thirteen starts and is a two-time graded stakes winner. Last time out, she pulled a mild upset over nine rivals in the Winning Colors (G3) over an off track at Churchill Downs. Jose Lezcano will be aboard and they will break from post eight.
