Nonna Mela 8-5 - has three career starts for trainer Todd Pletcher with two wins and a second place finish. She broke maiden two starts back July 2 at Monmouth Park by an impressive 7 1/4 lengths and followed that with another eye-opening six length win in the G2 Adirondack Stakes at Saratoga at 9-1 odds August 19. She had a third in her debut. Nonna Mela has been good so far and hopes to keep her impressive run going from post 3 Saturday. Javier Castellano gets the call on the only graded stakes winner in the field and morning line favorite.
Sky Gesture 2-1 - has just one career start for trainer Richard Violette and it was an impressive one - an easy maiden score at Saratoga August 28. She steps up looking to make it two-for-two with Mike Smith in the saddle of the intriguing morning line second choice from the rail.
Yellow Agate 3-1 - Christophe Clement trained filly will race for just the second time on Saturday having posted a nice win in her only career start - on this track September 11 with a field best 84 Beyer Speed Figure. Yellow Agate looked good in her only start and hopes to do so again from gate 4 Saturday. Manuel Franco has the mount on the third betting choice.
Libby's Tail 8-1 - will hit the track for just the third time for trainer Rudy Rodriguez off a somewhat disappointing stakes debut - a fourth as favorite in the G2 Adirondack Stakes at Saratoga August 19. Before that was a good win by 1 1/2 lengths at first asking at Belmont Park July 2 - a race she earned a 77 Beyer Speed Figure. Libby's Tail was good to start her career and looks to graduate to stakes winner Saturday. Irad Ortiz rides this highly regarded filly from gate 2.
Colorful Charades 12-1 - will hit the track for just the second time for trainer Rudy Rodriguez having posted a good win in her only career start - in frontrunning style at Saratoga August 14. She steps up looking to make a little noise from the outside gate 6 Saturday. John Velazquez has the mount.
Star Super 20-1 - has a win and a third place finish in three career starts for trainer Dale Capuano. Last time out was a respectable third in her stakes debut - the minor Sorority Stakes at Monmouth Park September 5. That result followed a maiden score August 5 and a fourth in her debut - both results at Laurel Park. Star Super has been trending upward ahead of this week and will leave from post 5 with Trevor McCarthy aboard.
