Las Vegas, NV - The Grade 1 14 Hands Winery Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies comes our way this Saturday, October 31 from Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky. Two year old fillies will be after the winner's share of the $2 million purse when they take to Keeneland's main track and race 1 1/16 miles.
10 two year old fillies have been confirmed for the BC Juvenile Fillies - race 3 on Keeneland's packer Breeders' Cup Saturday card. Post time is 12:05PM. Let's take a peek into the past performances of all 10 combatants for the first of nine BC races at Keeneland on Saturday.
Songbird 7-5 - will race for the fourth time Saturday having posted wins in her three career starts - the Grade 1 Chandelier Stakes by 4 1/2 lengths at Santa Anita September 26, by an impressive 5 1/4 lengths with a 96 Beyer Speed Figure as even money favorite in the Grade 1 Del Mar Debutante September 5 and by an impressive 6 1/2 lengths in her debut July 26. Songbird hasn't been touched so far, has never trailed and is expected to be the one to catch Saturday with Mike Smith in the reins of the morning line favorite from the outside post 10.
Rachel's Valentina 7-2 - will try to keep her perfect career record intact Saturday - two starts so far and two wins. Last time out was a win in the Grade 1 Spinaway Stakes at Saratoga September 5 after a maiden score at first asking on that same track August 2. Rachel's Valentina has been impressive so far and hopes to keep the momentum going - from post 9 with John Velazquez guiding her.
Nickname 4-1 - rides a two race win streak into action this weekend for trainer Steve Asmussen. Last time out was a nice win in her stakes debut - the Grade 1 Frizette Stakes I a sloppy track at Belmont Park October 3 which followed a maiden score in her second career start - at Saratoga September 2 and a fourth in her debut. Nickname has improved every time out and is expected to be in the mix Saturday - from post 7 with Javier Castellano aboard.
Land Over Sea 8-1 - Doug O'Neill trained filly will hit the track for the fifth time after a respectable second last time out behind Songbird in the Grade 1 Chandelier Stakes at Santa Anita September 26. That result followed a third - behind Songbird and Pretty N Cool in the Grade 1 Del Mar Debutante September 5, a maiden score in her second career start - at Del Mar July 29 and a second in her debut at Los Alamitos July 12. Land Over Sea has shown improvement and hopes to keep that trend going from the rail with Mario Gutierrez aboard.
