On Sunday at Aqueduct, the track will host the 77th running of the $100,000 East View Stakes. Restricted to two-year-old fillies bred in New York, the mile and seventy yard contest has drawn a field of six.
My Super Nova tops the field at odds of 2-1 on the morning line for trainer George Weaver. A juvenile of Super Saver, she has one win from four starts. After two runner-up finishes, she broke her maiden in October at Belmont as the heavy favorite over eleven rivals. She was fifth against state-bred stakes company last time out after a bad stumble at the start compromised her chances. She is stretching out to two turns for the first time and will have Angel Arroyo aboard from post three.
Building Permit making stakes debut
Chad Brown will saddle the second choice, Building Permit, at morning line odds of 5-2. A chestnut daughter of Bellamy Road purchased for $80,000 as a yearling, she is making her stakes debut after finishing second in an optional claiming race. She broke her maiden in her second outing and has been training steadily since her most recent race. Irad Ortiz, Jr. will be in the irons for the first time and they will break from post position six.

Also in the field at morning line odds of 7-2 is Sweetpollypurebrd for trainer Rudy Rodriguez. A chestnut daughter of Parading purchased for $75,000 in March, she has been on the board in all four career starts with one win. She has been third in her last two races, both of which came against restricted stakes competition. With regular rider Irad Ortiz, Jr. taking the mount on Building Permit, she will have Manuel Franco aboard from post position five.
