Stopchargingmaria - Todd Pletcher trained filly is coming off a terrific win by 10 3/4 lengths in the Grade 3 Tempted Stakes on this track November 3 after a third in the Grade 1 Frizette and a second in the Grade 1 Spinaway and a MSW score in her debut. She has been uber-competitive in all four career starts, is the only entry with any stakes experience and is the 8-5 morning line favorite for the Demoiselle. Javier Castellano gets the call from the outside post Saturday.
Got Lucky - another Todd Pletcher trained filly. She has just one career start - a second behind Penwith in a MSW at Belmont Park October 27. Despite the lack of experience Got Lucky is the 5-2 second choice this Saturday. She leaves from the rail with Mike Smith aboard.
