Diversy Harbor tops the competitive field as the morning line favorite at odds of 3-1 for trainer Tom Proctor. A bay daughter of Curlin, the four-year-old filly has won three of her eleven starts and will be trying to earn the second graded stakes victory of her career. She is trying to rebound after finishing sixth as the favorite in the Santa Ana Stakes (G2) last time out and will have regular rider Gary Stevens aboard from post position six.

Three Hearts looms large in second start of the year

Second choice at 7-2 on the morning line is Three Hearts for trainer Neil Drysdale. Bred and owned by Team Valor International, the bay daughter of Hat Trick (JPN) has been on the board in eleven of her sixteen starts and has three victories to her credit. She was second in her first start of the year, the Santa Ana Stakes (G2), and is scheduled to break from the rail under regular rider Tyler Baze.

Walk Close returning off of freshening 

Also in the field at morning line odds of 6-1 is Walk Close for trainer Christophe Clement. A bay daughter of Tapit purchased for $180,000 as a yearling, she has won three of her seven starts and will be making her first start on the West Coast. She has been on the shelf since finishing sixth in the Mrs. Revere Stakes (G2) in November and will have Victor Espinoza aboard as she goes for her first graded stakes win.
