2014 John C. Mabee Stakes Race Favorite Entries
Miss Serendipity - will make her sixth North American start for trainer Ronald McAnally after 19 starts in Argentina yielded five wins, five seconds and two third place finishes. Her debut here was a troubled fourth as favorite in the minor Paseana Stakes January 12 which she followed with another fourth in her North American graded stakes debut - the Grade 2 Buena Vista here February 17 and an OK third in the Grade 3 Santa Ana Stakes March 16. She has certainly picked up her game the last two starts - a win last time out over Emollient in the Grade 1 Gamely Stakes at this distance at Santa Anita followed a second in the Grade 3 Santa Barbara Handicap in April. Miss Serendipity has now placed in her last three starts, improving every time out and should be a factor Sunday. Rafael Bejarano will get the mount on the 123 pound highweight from post 6.
Wishing Gate - Thomas Proctor trained filly has just two starts in 2014 - a fifth as favorite behind Parranda in the minor Florida Sunshine Millions Filly and Mare Turf and a fourth last time out in the Grade 2 Royal Heroine at Santa Anita June 28. She has four wins and three seconds in 13 career starts and looked very good at the end of 2013 before a slight stumble this year - a win in the Grade 3 Autumn Miss Stakes October 26 followed a second to Discreet Marq in the Grade 1 Del Mar Oaks, a good win in her stakes debut - the Grade 2 San Clemente at 5-1 odds at Del Mar July 21 and an Allowance Optional Claiming score at Arlington Park June 23. She has three wins and a second in her last seven starts but has failed to place in her last three overall. Drayden Van Dyke will be in charge of Wishing Gate from post 3.

Stormy Lucy - had an ugly eleventh in the 2012 Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Turf and was forced into a seven month layoff. She returned and finished fifth in the 2013 Royal Heroine and has been up and down since - a win by four lengths in the minor Miss America Stakes October 19, an eighth in the Grade 1 Matriarch at Hollywood Park December 1, a fifth in the Grade 2 Buena Vista Stakes February 17and a very good second behind Customer Base in the Grade 3 Robert J. Frankel December 29. She comes off a disappointing seventh in the Grade 2 Royal Heroine June 28, a pedestrian fourth in the Grade 1 Gamely Stakes here May 26 and a nice two race win streak - the competitive Grade 2 Santa Ana Stakes March 16 and in the Grade 3 Santa Barbara Handicap in April. She has won two of her last four starts overall and she beat Miss Serendipity twice last year but has not looked great in her last two efforts overall. Corey Nakatani gets the call from gate 8.
Every Way - Michael Stidham trained filly is coming off a fourth in the Grade 3 Modesty Handicap July 12 after a second in the minor Minnesota H.B.P.A Stakes in June and an Allowance Optional Claiming in May. She last placed in graded stakes company in September - a second in the Grade 3 Pucker Up Stakes but has placed in five of her last six starts overall including two wins (Allowance Optional Claiming races) and three seconds. Every Way will depart from post 3 with Joe Talamo aboard.

Cozze Up Lady - Kent Desormeaux trained mare is coming off a nice win in the restricted Osunitas Stakes at 11-1 odds on this track July 19 after three sketchy results - a seventh in the Grade 3 Chicago Handicap June 28, a fourth in the Grade 3 Winning Colors Stakes in May and a sixth in the Grade 1 Madison Stakes in April. This after a nice three race win streak including the minor Mardi Gras Stakes and the 2013 Chicago Handicap. Cozze Up Lady has 16 career starts with seven wins, two seconds and two third place finishes and hopes to keep the upward trend going after struggling earlier this year. Kent Desormeaux will be in charge of Cozze Up Lady from the outside post.
Charlie Em - British bred Patrick Gallagher trained filly was good at home and carried that to North America with a good win in her debut here - the Grade 1 Senorita Stakes in May, 2013. She has been up and down since - 11 starts have produced just one win (in the minor Possibly Perfect Handicap at Santa Anita June 26) and four third place finishes including the Grade 3 Autumn Miss Stakes in October. She now has 20 career starts with five wins, a second and five third place finishes and enters in so-so form despite her win last time out. Martin Garcia rides from the rail.
Miss Ellany - John Sadler trained Irish bred filly makes her first start since August of last year when she finished sixth in an Allowance Optional Claiming on this track. Before that was a two race Allowance win streak - both at Hollywood Park. Miss Ellany has just one graded stakes start - a sixth in the Grade 1 Gamely Stakes in May, 2013. She has 15 career starts with four wins, a second and two third place finishes and will leave from post 4 with Edwin Maldonado aboard.
Moulin de Mouglin - has 12 career starts for trainer Richard Mandella with three wins, two seconds and two third place finishes. She is coming off a good third in the Grade 2 Royal Heroine Stakes at Santa Anita June 28 after an Allowance Optional Claiming score May 25, a fourth in the minor Santa Lucia Stakes April 20, a third in an Allowance Optional Claiming in April and an Allowance score in February. Moulin de Mouglin has placed in six of her last seven starts and enters in decent form. Mike Smith rides from gate 5.
Queen of the Sand - Patrick Gallagher trained Irish bred filly had four wins, a second and three third place finishes at home before shipping to North America. She has two starts on American soil - a fifth in her debut May 25 followed an Allowance Optional Claiming score last time out June 22 at Santa Anita. She was a stakes winner at home - hopes are her success finally translates in North America. Martin Pedroza will be in the reins from gate 7.
