Jonesin for Jerry - John Robb trained filly finished second in a Maiden Claiming in her career debut at Pimlico in May but followed that with a nice gate-to-wire MSW score last time out at Delaware Park June 29. She is another of the well matched field that could emerge victorious Friday.

Brazen Persuasion - Steve Asmussen trained filly has two career starts - a second in her debut and a six furlong MSW score by 4 3/4 lengths last time out June 29 at Churchill Downs. She is the most expensive purchase in the field - a lot is expected!
True Blue Nation - Thomas Albertini pupil has just one career start but it was a good one - a five furlong MSW score by 5 1/4 lengths at 17-1 odds at Belmont Park June 21. Her trainer has high hopes for this filly - Friday will go a long way in telling if Albertini is on to something.
