2013 Acorn Stakes Race Favorites

Kauai Katie - impressive Todd Pletcher trained filly has won six of seven career starts including the Matron Stakes at Belmont Park September 30 and the Adirondack Stakes at Saratoga August 12 before that. She was an OK fourth in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies in November but has been on fire of late - three straight wins in 2013 include the Grade 3 Old Hat Stakes January 1, the Grade 2 Forward Gal Stakes January 26 and the minor Road Princess Stakes last time out in gate-to-wire fashion April 21 at Aqueduct. Regular rider John Velazquez gets the mount this week and starts from the rail.

Midnight Lucky - has just three career starts for trainer Bob Baffert - two wins to start her career - by eight lengths in the minor Sunland Park Oaks March 24 after a MSW score by 7 1/4 lengths in her debut February 16. Her graded stakes debut came May 3 in the Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks where she finished fifth after setting the pace.

Close Hatches - made her stakes debut out for legendary trainer Bill Mott and recorded a terrific win in the Grade 2 Gazelle Stakes by 3 1/4 lengths at Aqueduct April 6 after two prior starts resulted in two wins - an Allowance Optional Claiming in wire-to-wire fashion by 1 1/4 lengths at Gulfstream March 10 and a MSW score January 26 also at Gulfstream. Last time out however was a very disappointing seventh in the Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks May 3. She has three wins in four starts and be looking to bounce back after an ugly effort last time out.
