2015 Noble Damsel Stakes Race Favorite Entries
Coffee Clique - Brian Lynch trained mare has seven wins, two seconds and two third place finishes in 16 career starts and has been a tad difficult to figure out lately. She enters off a fifth in the Grade 2 Ballston Spa Stakes at Saratoga August 29 which followed a good win in the Grade 3 Dr. James Penny Memorial at Parx July 4, a sixth in the Grade 1 Just a Game Stakes in June, a second in the Grade 2 Churchill Distaff Turf Mile and a third in the Grade 2 Honey Fox Stakes in March. She ended 2014 with a win in the 2014 Just a Game Stakes at Belmont Park in June during a tidy three race win streak - the others wins being Grade 2 Churchill Distaff turf May 3 and an Allowance Optional Claiming at Gulfstream in March. She also posted a nice win in the Grade 3 Selene Stakes May 19, 2013. Coffee Clique has placed in just one of her last three starts overall after hitting the board in her previous six. Manuel Franco has been tabbed with getting Coffee Clique, the 123 pound co-highweight back into top form when they leave from the rail Saturday.
Lady Lara - legendary trainer Bill Mott sends out Lady Lara who had two wins, two seconds and three third place finishes in 13 starts in Ireland before shipping. She recorded a win, a second and a third place finish in her last three starts at home and posted two wins and a second place finish in her first three starts in North America. She won the Grade 2 Honey Fox Stakes in March at Gulfstream, was a respectable second in the Grade 2 Mrs. Revere Stakes at Churchill Downs in November and she won her North American debut - the minor Pebbles Stakes at Belmont Park in October. Lady Lara has stumbled of late - a sixth last time out in the Grade 1 Diana Stakes July 25 followed two straight fourth place finishes - the Grade 1 Just a Game Stakes last time out June 6 and in the Grade 2 Churchill Distaff Turf Mile in May. She has failed to place in her last three starts overall and hopes to regain her early year from with Junior Alvarado in the reins of the other 123 pound co-highweight from gate 8.
Noble Damsel Stakes 2015 | Remaining Contenders
Devilish Love - finished sixth in this race last year and has placed in all four starts since. Last time out was a third in the minor Mrs. Penny Stakes at Parx September 5 after a third in an Allowance Optional Claiming here in July, a second in the minor License Fee Stakes on this track in May and a second in the minor Maryland Million Ladies Stakes in October. Devilish Love has four wins, two seconds and three third place finishes in 12 career starts and has been knocking on the door lately. She will be after her first win since a three race win streak last summer when she departs from gate 6 with Christopher DeCarlo in the saddle.
Marbre Rose - Irish bred Christophe Clement trained filly had a win, a second and two third place finishes at home before shipping - the thirds coming in Group 3 stakes races in France. Since her arrival on North American soil she has been good - six starts with three impressive wins and two runner-up finishes. She enters in the heels of her first graded stakes score - the Grade 3 Seaway Stakes at Woodbine August 8 and consecutive runner-up finishes in minor stakes action at Belmont Park - the Perfect Sling Stakes July 3 and the Intercontinental Stakes in June. Before that was a sixth in the Grade 2 Honey Fox Stakes and wins in the minor South Beach Stakes December 13 and an Allowance at Belmont Park in October. Marbre Rose has placed in five of six North American starts and hopes to keep the roll going from gate 2 with Jose Lezcano guiding her.

Recepta - has 10 career starts for trainer James Toner with four wins and three third place finishes. She enters off a nice win in the minor Fasig-Tipton De La Rose Stakes at Saratoga August 8 which followed a fourth in the Grade 3 Eatontown Stakes at Monmouth Park in June, an OK third place finish in the Grade 3 Beaugay Stakes at Belmont Park May 9, an Allowance score April 12, a tenth in the Grade 1 Belmont Oaks Invitational last July and consecutive thirds in stakes action last summer. Recepta has been a tad up and down but a win last time out could be a sign of things to come. Elvis Trujillo has been tabbed to ride as Recepta chases her second straight stakes score from post 5.
Crowley's Law - British bred filly makes her North American debut Saturday after 14 career starts at home yielded three wins, five seconds and two third place finishes. She placed in her last four starts overseas - three seconds in stakes action and a third in a stakes race at Haydock Park August 8. Crowley's Law will be out to snap a nine race losing streak Saturday and enters in decent form. Colm O'Donoghue has the mount from post 7.
Baffle Me - finished fourth in this race last year and has placed in just two of seven starts since. She enters on the heels of consecutive sixth place finishes - the Grade 3 Matchmaker Stakes at Monmouth Park August 2 and the Grade 3 Dr. James Penny Memorial Handicap in July. Before that was a ninth in the Grade 1 Just a Game Stakes in June and a win in the minor Powder Break Stakes in April at Gulfstream. Baffle Me hasn't looked great - she departs from the outside post with Kendrick Carmouche guiding her.
Tuttipaesi - Irish bred Graham Motion trained mare won three of five starts at home before shipping. She debuted in North America in March, 2013 and finished third in the Grade 3 Herecomesthebride Stakes and followed that with a second in the Grade 1 Ashland Stake s a month later. She was off for 20 months before returning with a sixth in an Allowance in November. Last time out was a second in the minor Fasig-Tipton De La Rose Stakes at Saratoga August 8 which followed a fourth in an Allowance Optional Claiming in February and an eleventh in the minor South Beach Stakes in December. Tuttipaesi looks for her first win since January, 2013 and enters in less-than-spectacular form. Fernando Jara gets the call from post 3.
Miss Frost - won three straight races last summer including the minor Riskaverse Stakes last August and the minor Tenski Stakes three weeks before that. She has not looked good since - she has alternated eighth place finishes and ninth place finishes in her last five starts overall. Last time out was an eighth in the minor Fasig-Tipton De La Rose Stakes after a ninth in the minor Perfect Sting Stakes in July, an eighth in the minor Miss Liberty Stakes in May, a ninth in the Grade 2 Mrs. Revere Stakes in November and an eighth in the Grade 3 Pin Oak Valley View Stakes in October. Miss Frost has four wins and two third place finishes in 15 career starts and looks to snap a considerable slump from gate 4. Cornelio Velasquez rides.
