2015 Mother Goose Stakes Race Favorite Entries
Include Betty - Tom Proctor trained filly has nine career starts with three wins, two seconds and a third place finish and enters this week having won three of her last six races - the minor Suncoast Stakes January 31, a maiden score January 3 in her fourth career start and a terrific win in the Grade 3 Fantasy Stakes at Oaklawn Park April 4. Last time out was another solid effort - a second to Keen Pauline in the Grade 2 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes at Pimlico May 15 which followed a career worst effort - an eighth in the Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks May 1. Include Betty has raced in four straight graded stakes races and is the most experienced entry in the field. She departs from gate 2 looking for her second graded stakes win as the one to catch with Drayden Van Dyke aboard.
Eskenformoney - Todd Pletcher trained filly has 10 career starts with two wins, three seconds and a third place finish. She enters off an ugly tenth in the Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks May 1 after a decent second in the Grade 2 Gulfstream Park Oaks March 28, an OK third - a neck behind Birdatthewire in the Grade 2 Davona Dale Stakes February 21 and a tidy two race wins streak - an Allowance Optional Claiming by 3 3/4 lengths January 16 and a maiden score December 16 by 9 3/4 lengths in her sixth career start. Eskenformoney has placed in five for her last six races and will be out to bounce back from a career worst effort. Javier Castellano gets the call from post 9.

Wonder Gal - has placed in five of six career starts for trainer Leah Gyarmati - one win, a second and three third place finishes. Her win came in her debut - the minor Lynbrook Stakes on this track last July and the second game in the Grade 1 Frizette Stakes also here in October. Wonder Gal enters off a third in the Grade 1 Acorn Stakes here June 6 which followed a fourth in the Grade 2 Gazelle Stakes in April and a very respectable third in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies. She has been in there with some top field and has fared very well- hopes are she can keep that trend going from the outside post with Rajiv Maragh in the saddle.
Danessa Deluxe - has two wins, two seconds and a third place finish in seven career starts for trainer Jorge Navarro and was last seen running fourth in the Grade 2 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes at Pimlico May 15 after a decent third in the Grade 2 Gulfstream Park Oaks March 28 and a fourth in the Grade 3 Delta Downs Princess Stakes November 22. Before that was a two race win streak - an Allowance Optional Claiming by 5 1/4 lengths at Gulfstream Park West October 29 and a maiden score October 3. She has been decent in her career but looks for a stakes breakthrough Saturday from gate 8 with Manuel Franco in the saddle.
Embellish the Lace - Anthony Dutrow trained filly has three career starts with two wins and a fifth place finish in her debut. Last time out was an Allowance Optional Claiming score at Pimlico June 4 after breaking maiden at Parx in December - those two wins coming by a combined 23 1/2 lengths. She has looked good her last two outings and will have Irad Ortiz in the saddle Saturday from the rail.

Munasara - Kiaran McLaughlin trained filly will try to remain perfect in her career - two starts so far and two wins. Last time the win came in an Allowance Optional Claiming on this track May 10 after a maiden score at first asking in March. John Velazquez has been tabbed with keeping the roll going from gate 4 Saturday.
Money'soncharlotte - Kelly Breen trained filly won her stakes debut - the minor Hut Hut Stakes at Gulfstream Park West November 29 and has been up and down since. Last time out was a disappointing thirteenth in the Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks May 1 which followed a respectable third in the Grade 2 Gazelle Stakes at Aqueduct April 4, an ugly tenth in the Grade 2 Davona Dale Stakes February 21 and a third in the minor Silverbulletday Stakes January 17. Money'soncharlotte looks for her first graded stakes score but enters in sketchy form from post 7 with Eric Cancel in the reins.
Chide - has placed in all three career starts for trainer Albert Stall - two wins and a second place finish. She makes her stakes debut Saturday off an Allowance score May 31, a second in an Allowance Optional Claiming May 1 and a maiden score at first asking in March. Joel Rosario will be in the irons from post 5 Saturday as Chide attempt to translate her success into stakes company.
Hot City Girl - makes her graded stakes debut Saturday for trainer Linda Rice after seven career starts produces two wins and two second place finishes. She enters off consecutive fourth place finishes in minor stakes action- the Bouwerie Stakes here May 25 and the Caesar's Wish Stakes in March. Those results followed a second in the minor Wide Country Stakes in February and an Allowance Optional Claiming score at Aqueduct in January. Hot City Girl has been OK so far in her career and will have Jose Ortiz in the reins from post 3.
Pleasant Tales - has two wins and a second place finish in eight career starts for trainer Dallas Stewart. She enters off one of her wins- an Allowance Optional Claiming at Churchill Downs May 28, a fourth in a similar race May 1 and an eighth in her only graded stakes action to fate - the Grade 3 Rachel Alexandra Stakes at Fair Grounds in February. Pleasant Tales has won two of her last four starts but has stumbled in the others over that span. Junior Alvarado rides from gate 6.
