2016 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Entries at Santa Anita Park
Noted and Quoted 9-2 - has two wins in four career starts for trainer Bob Baffert. She was fourth in her debut July 16, broke maiden August 7 and followed that with a fourth in the G1 Del Mar Debutante September 3 - all results at Del Mar. She broke through last time out with a terrific win at 7-1 odds on this track in the G1 Chandelier Stakes October 1. Noted and Quoted looked great last time out and will look to build on that effort from gate 10 with Rafael Bejarano in the reins of the tepid morning line favorite.
Valadorna 5-1 - Mark Casse trained filly has two career starts with a win and a second place finish. She makes her stakes debut Saturday off a maiden score at Keeneland October 7 and a second in her debut at Churchill Downs September 16. Valadorna has shown improvement and will be out to make a huge statement from post 3 Saturday. Julien Leparoux has the mount on the interesting second betting choice.
Sweet Loretta 6-1 - impressive Todd Pletcher trained filly has three career starts and three wins - two graded stakes. Last time out was in the G1 Spinaway Stakes at Saratoga September 3 and before that was by 4 1/4 lengths in the G3 Schuylerville Stakes on that track July 22. She won her debut by seven lengths at Monmouth Park in June. Sweet Loretta has been terrific so far and is expected to be in the mix again Saturday. Javier Castellano will be in the reins from post 5 looking to keep the streak going.
Union Strike 6-1 - Craig Dollase trained filly will hit the track for the third time looking pretty good - her first start was a second place finish in a MSW at Del Mar July 31 and her second start resulted in a very good win in the G1 Del Mar Debutante Stakes September 3. Union Strike has shown rapid improvement and should be competitive Saturday. Martin Garcia will be in the irons from post 9.
American Gal 6-1 - up-and-coming Bob Baffert trained filly has two career starts and two wins. She makes her graded stakes debut off a good win in the minor Anakia Stakes here October 23 and a maiden score at first asking - at Del Mar August 14. American Gal hopes to make it 3-for-3 in her major step up in competition - from the outside gate 12 with Mike Smith in the saddle
Yellow Agate 8-1 - Christophe Clement trained filly will race for just the third time on Saturday having posted nice wins in her only career starts - the first came on this track September 11 with a 84 Beyer Speed Figure and the second was in the G1 Frizette Stakes on that track October 8. Yellow Agate hasn't been touched so far and hopes the same is true this Saturday. Manuel Franco will be in the saddle from gate 4.
Jamyson n' Ginger 8-1 - has three career starts for trainer Rudy Rodriguez with a win and a third place finish. She makes her stakes debut Saturday off a maiden score by 15 1/4 lengths with a 103 Beyer Speed Figure at Belmont Park October 9, a fifth in a MSW on that track September 11 and a third in her debut at Saratoga in August. Jamyson n' Ginger takes a huge step up in competition in so-so form and will have Irad Ortiz aboard from post 7.
With Honors 10-1 - impressive Keith Desormeaux trained filly won her first two starts - the minor Del Mar Juvenile Fillies Turf Stakes September 5 and at first asking July 29 and most recently finished a good second, a half-length back of Noted and Quoted in the G1 Chandelier Stakes on this very track October 1. She has been in every race so far and is expected to be again Saturday from gate 2. Flavien Prat gets the call.
Dancing Rags 12-1 - Graham Motion trained filly has two wins and a third place finish in her three career starts. She debuted with a third August 5 and broke maiden September 17 at Laurel Park. Last time out was a very successful step up into stakes company - a win in the G1 Darley Alcibiades Stakes at Keeneland October 7. Dancing Rags appears to be peaking ahead of this weekend and will try to make it three straight wins from gate 8. Angel Cruz gets the call.
Daddys Lil Darling 12-1 - has four career starts for trainer Kenneth McPeek with two wins and a second place finish. Last time out was a second behind Dancing Rags in the G1 Darley Alcibiades Stakes at Keeneland October 7 which followed a career-defining win in the G2 Pocahontas Stakes at Churchill Downs September 17. She broke maiden at Ellis Park July 29 and had a fourth in her debut in June. Daddys Lil Darling has looked good in top company so far and hopes for a second graded stakes win from post 11 with Corey Lanerie guiding her.
Champagne Room 20-1 - has a win, a second and a third place finish in four career starts for trainer Peter Eurton. Last time out was a somewhat disappointing fourth in the G1 Chandelier Stakes on this track October 1 which followed an OK third, a nose behind American Cleopatra in the G1 Del Mar Debutante Stakes September 3, an uber-successful stakes debut - a win by 1 1/4 lengths in the G2 Sorrento Stakes at Del Mar August 6 and a second in her debut at Del Mar July 16. Champagne Room has been a factor in every race so far and hopes to bounce back from a career-worst effort from gate 6. Mario Gutierrez rides.
Colorful Charades 30-1 - will hit the track for just the third time for trainer Rudy Rodriguez having posted a good win in her first career start - in frontrunning style at Saratoga August 14 and a respectable third behind Yellow Agate last time out in the G1 Frizette Stakes at Belmont Park October 8. She has been OK so far but will need a special effort to contend Saturday. Luis Saez has been tabbed to ride from the rail.
