On Saturday at Woodbine, the featured race is the 34th edition of the $150,000 Jammed Lovely Stakes. The seven-furlong contest has attracted a field of eight Ontario-bred three-year-old fillies.

Unspurned has been installed as the 2-1 morning line favorite for trainer Roger Attfield. Bred and owned by Christine Hayden, the sophomore daughter of Lemon Drop Kid has won three of her ten lifetime starts, one of which came against restricted state-bred stakes competition. She was last seen finishing second in the Ruling Angel Stakes. Justin Stein will remain aboard and they will break from post position four.

Lightly-raced Fun in the Desert makes stakes debut

Second choice at 5-2 on the morning line is Fun in the Desert, a royally-bred homebred for Sam-Son Farm and trainer Malcolm Pierce. A three-year-old daughter of Distorted Humor, she is out of Canadian champion filly Eye of the Sphynx and a half-sister to Queens’ Plate winner Eye of the Leopard. She broke her maiden at first asking in September and will try winners for the first time under Eurico Da Silva from the rail.

Aragorn Amy trying to earn second stakes win

Also in the field is Aragorn Ami at morning line odds of 8-1 for Josie Carroll. A bay daughter of Aragorn (IRE), she has won two of her five career starts and has won on both conventional dirt and synthetics. She was last seen finishing third against optional claiming competition and is trying to earn her second win of the year. Luis Contreras, aboard for her last two races, has retained the mount from post three.
