On Saturday at Gulfstream Park, three-year-old fillies will face off in the 38th running of the $100,000 Old Hat Stakes. The Grade 3 race will be contested at six furlongs and has drawn a field of eight.

Fashion Alert has been installed as the morning line favorite at odds of 7-5 for trainer Todd Pletcher. A bay daughter of Old Fashioned, she broke her maiden in her debut at Belmont in June and reeled off a follow-up victory in the Schuylerville (G3) at Saratoga. She has been on the shelf since finishing sixth in the Alcibiades (G1). Regular rider John Velazquez will be aboard and they are scheduled to break from the rail.

Temper Mint Patty going for first graded stakes win

Second choice at 4-1 on the morning line is Temper Mint Patty for trainer Dale Romans. A dark bay daughter of Congrats purchased for $95,000 as a juvenile, she won her first two races against state-bred competition in New York before finishing second in her first try around two turns. She was fifth in the Delta Princess (G3) behind likely juvenile filly champion Take Charge Brandi. Corey Lanerie will be aboard for the first time from post six.

Ekati’s Phaeton trying to remain perfect on Gulfstream dirt

Also in the field at morning line odds of 9-2 is Ekati’s Phaeton for trainer William Kaplan. She will be making her graded stakes debut and is a perfect two for two over the Gulfstream Park main track. She was second in the House Party Stakes at Gulfstream Park West last time out and has had a pair of encouraging workouts since then. Luis Saez has picked up the mount and they will break from post position seven.
