2014 Autumn Miss Stakes Race Favorite Entries
Lexie Lou - four time stakes winner enters off a very disappointing tenth as 3-2 choice in the Grade 2 Canadian Derby (her graded stakes debut) after a terrific three race win streak - the minor Wonder Where Stakes August 10, the prestigious Queen's Plate July 6 against the boys and a terrific 4 1/2 length win in the Woodbine Oaks June 15 for trainer Mark Casse. She now has six wins, two seconds and two third place finishes in 14 career starts and looked unbeatable before her ugly effort last time out. Lexie Lou should be prime for a bounce back Saturday when she leaves from gate 5 with Corey Nakatani in the saddle.
Diversy Harbor - Tom Proctor trained filly has seven career starts with two wins, two seconds and a third place finish. She has failed to place in her last two however - last time out was a sixth in the Grade 1 Del Mar Oaks which followed a fourth as favorite in the Grade 2 San Clemente Stakes here July 19. Before that was a good second in the Grade 1 American Oaks May 31 at Santa Anita, a third in the Grade 2 Honeymoon Stakes May 4 and a second in the Grade 3 Providencia Stakes April 5. She started her career with two wins including the minor one mile China Doll Stakes at Santa Anita March 8. Diversy Harbor has been competitive ever time out and like a few in the field will be looking to avenge a poor outing. She looks for her first graded stakes score with Mike Smith in the reins from gate 6.

Alexis Tangier - Richard Mandella trained filly makes her graded stakes debut Saturday after six career starts yielded three wins and a second place finish. She enters on a two race win streak - the 6 1/2 furlong minor Unzip Me Stakes last time out on this track September 27 and an Allowance at this distance at Del Mar August 20. She has won three of her last four starts overall and looks more than ready for her step up in competition. Victor Espinoza has the mount from post 7.
Sheza Smoke Show - Peter Eurton trained filly won the one mile Grade 3 Senorita Stakes at Santa Anita June 28 at 10-1 odds but hasn't been great since - a twelfth in the Grade 2 San Clemente Stakes in July at Del Mar was followed by a fourth last time out in the minor Sandy Blue Stakes on that same track in August. She has three wins and a third place finish in eight career starts and will be looking to get back to her Senorita form after two ugly outings. Martin Garcia will be in charge of the 122 pound top weight from post 3 as Sheza Smoke Show tries for her fourth win on this track.
Thegirlinthatsong - Jerry Hollendorfer trained filly has nine starts this year with two wins, a second and three third place finishes and has looked good in her last two stakes starts. Last time out was a second in the minor Remington Park Oaks September 28 which followed a good third in the Grade 3 Torrey Pines Stakes at Del Mar August 31. She has placed in six of her last seven starts and should be competitive again Saturday. Rafael Bejarano gets the call from the rail.

Famous Alice - will hit the track for the ninth time for trainer Tom Proctor having recorded two wins and three second place finishes. She has failed to place in het last two starts however - last time out was a disappointing eighth in the Grade 1 Rodeo Drive Stakes after a fifth in the Grade 1 Del Mar Oaks. This after a good second in her graded stakes debut - the Grade 3 Senorita Stakes at Santa Anita June 28 and an Allowance Optional Claiming score in April. She will have Drayden Van Dyke aboard from post 4.
Wonderfully - Irish bred Tom Proctor trained filly had two wins including a group III stakes in eight starts at home but hasn't been great in three starts since - all in North America. She enters off consecutive eighth place finishes - the minor Unzip Me Stakes last time out here September 27 and the minor Sandy Blue Handicap at Del Mar in August which followed a fifth in the Grade 1 Belmont Oaks Invitational in July. Not a whole lot is expected Saturday when she departs from post 9 with Perry Wayne Ouzts in the reins.
On the Backstreets - Peter Miller pupil has won three of six starts and four of nine career starts. Her biggest wins to date have come on this track - in the minor Sweet Life Stakes in February and the minor Ultrafleet Stakes in May. Her only graded stakes start resulted in a seventh - three back in the Grade 1 Ashland Stakes at Keeneland. Last time out was a fifth in the minor Unzip Me Stakes here September 27. On the Backstreets has been a tad inconsistent but does have two stakes scores this year. Joe Talamo will be in the saddle from post 2 Saturday.
Zindaya - Christophe Clement pupil has placed in all five career starts - two wins, two seconds and a third place finish. She makes her stakes debut Saturday on a two race win streak - an Allowance last time out at Santa Anita Park September 24 and a maiden score at Saratoga in August. She takes a huge leap up in competition with Brice Blanc aboard from post 8.
Tiz Kissable - Tim McCanna trained filly is coming off a very good second in the Grade 3 Torrey Pines Stakes at Del Mar August 31 which followed a third in the minor Sandy Blue Stakes on that same track two weeks earlier. She also had a sixth in the Grade 2 San Clement Handicap in July. Before that was an Allowance Optional Claiming score June 1 at Golden Gate and consecutive thirds in minor stakes action - the China Doll Stakes in March and the California Oaks in February. She has been trending upward the last couple of races and could be a factor from gate 10 with Tyler Baze in the irons.
Burning Arch - Alternate Entry and Jerry Hollendorfer pupil has five career starts with two wins and two second place finishes. She finished seventh in her only stakes action - the Grade 3 Senorita Stakes here in June but has reeled off consecutive wins since - a maiden score in July and an Allowance score last time out at Del Mar August 24. Alex Solis may get the mount from post 11 - if she races.
Kool Kat - Alternate Entry may race in graded stakes company for the first time. She had two consecutive wins this summer but hasn't been great in two stakes starts since - a sixth in the minor Sandy Blue Stakes August 15 was followed by a fourth last time out in the minor Unzip Me Stakes here September 27. If the race is moves Kool Kat will have Corey Nakatani aboard from post 12.
Gender Agenda - Alternate Entry - British bred Carla Gaines trainee has a win and a second in two starts this year - two wins, two seconds and two thirds in nine career starts. She debuted in North America two back and won an Allowance at Del Mar and went on to a good second last time out in the minor Unzip Me Stakes here September 27. Joe Talamo will ride from gate 13 assuming she does indeed line up.
Maibaby - Alternate Entry - Irish bred filly may make her North American debut Saturday having raced six time in Europe and posting two wins and two third place finishes. Her last start resulted in an Allowance score at Chantilly after consecutive thirds in similar races. Kieren Fallon may be in the saddle from post 14.
