Fillies and mares four years old and upward will take to Keeneland's dirt track and race 1 1/16 miles searching for the winner's share of the $100,000 purse.
A field of nine will take to the track in the Doubledogdare Stakes - race 9 on Keeneland's Friday schedule. Post time is 5:30 PM. Let's take a look into the past performances of all nine entries for this Grade 3 stakes.
I'm a Chatterbox 3-5 - multiple graded stakes winner and Larry Jones trained filly has five wins, two seconds and two third place finishes in 11 career starts - she was second to Stellar Wind in the Eclipse Award voting. She was last seen running a somewhat disappointing eighth in the Breeders' Cup Distaff here which followed a good win - the Grade 1 Cotillion Stakes at Parx September 19 and consecutive seconds - behind Curalina after being DQ'd for interference in the Grade 1 Coaching Club American Oaks July 26 and in the Grade 1 Alabama Stakes at Saratoga August 22. She also had an OK third in the Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks May 1 and a three race win streak to start 2015- the Grade 2 Fair Grounds Oaks March 28, the Grade 3 Rachel Alexandra Stakes February 21 and the minor Silverbulletday Stakes in January - all results at Fair Grounds. I'm a Chatterbox had been mighty impressive before last time out. The overwhelming morning line favorite hopes for a strong bounce back with Florent Geroux in the irons from gate 2.
Ahh Chocolate 4-1 - Neil Howard trained filly has placed in seven of 10 career starts - four wins, a second and two third place finishes. She enters off an OK third in the minor Esplanade Overnight Stales at Fair Grounds March 18 which followed a career defining win in the Grade 2 Falls City Handicap at Churchill Downs November 26, a second in the Grade 2 Chilukki Stakes on that track November 7 and an eighth on this track in the Grade 2 Lexus Raven Run Stakes in October. Ahh Chocolate has been competitive in her last three starts and will be out of keep the roll going from gate 6 Saturday. Brian Joseph Hernandez has the mount on the morning line second choice from gate 6.

White Clove 5-1 - George Arnold trained filly has four wins, two seconds and two third place finishes in 13 career starts and has two minor stakes wins to her credit - the Wayward Lass Stakes last time out at Tampa Bay January 23 and the Our Mims Stakes in June at Delaware Park. Prior to her last win she was just OK - a sixth in the minor Dream Supreme Stakes in November followed a fourth in the Grade 3 Charles Town Oaks in September, a decent third in the Grade 3 Monmouth Oaks in August and a seventh in the Grade 3 Delaware Oaks in July. White Clover seeks her first graded stakes score Friday and enters in so-so form. Corey Lanerie will be in the saddle of the third betting choice from post 7.
Back in Dixie 15-1 - Ingrid Mason trained filly has seven wins, two seconds and a third place finish in 14 career starts. She makes her stakes debut Saturday on the heels of a nice five race win streak - an Allowance Optional Claiming April 7, another Allowance Optional Claiming March 11, a Claiming February 12 (all three at Oaklawn Park), an Allowance Optional Claiming at Hawthorne in December and a Claiming in November. Back in Dixie hasn't been touched in over five months and looks more than ready for her step up in competition. Channing Hill has been tabbed to ride the intriguing 15-1 shot from post 5.
Brooklynsway 15-1 - Bernard Flint trained filly has 14 career starts with four wins, two seconds and two third place finishes. She posted two minor stakes wins at Woodbine last summer including the Bison City Stakes in July and the OLG Algoma Stakes in September and has just two starts since. Last time out was a fourth in the minor Esplanade Overnight Stakes at Fair Grounds March 18 after six months away and a fifth in the minor La Prevoyante Stakes in September. She posted a runner-up finish in her only graded stakes start to date - the Grade 3 Mazarine Stakes at Woodbine in October, 2014. Brooklynsway hopes to snap a two race losing streak and for her first ever graded stakes score from the rail Friday. Robby Albarado gets the call.
Innovative Idea 20-1 - Eoin Harty trained filly has four wins, three seconds and two third place finishes in 12 career starts. She has placed in seven of her last eight starts ahead of this Friday. Last time out was an Allowance Optional Claiming score at Tampa Bay March 30 after a fourth in the minor Wayward Lass Stakes on that track in January, a second in an Allowance Optional Claiming in December and a two race win streak - both Allowance races last year. Innovative Idea has been in every race the last 16 or so months and hopes for a first ever stakes score. James Graham will be in the reins from the outside post 9.
Welcome Aboard 20-1 - Eric Reed trained mare has 26 career starts with eight wins, five seconds and a third place finish. She won the minor Opelousas Stakes at Evangeline in July - her best career effort but hasn't been great since. She has failed to place in her last four starts overall - last time out was a seventh in the minor Jersey Lilly Stakes February 27 after her only graded stakes action produced a fifth in the Grade 3 Houston Ladies Classic, a fifth in an Allowance Optional Claiming December 13 and a ninth in an Allowance in October. Welcome Abroad looks for her first decent effort in seven months Saturday with Deshawn Parker guiding her from post 3.
Pretty Fancy 20-1 - defending fourth place finisher in this race, George Arnold trained mare has three wins, three seconds and four third place finishes in 20 career starts. She looks for her first stakes win Friday having placed in just one of her last six starts overall. Last time out was a fifth in the Grade 2 Falls City Handicap at Churchill Downs November 26 after a third in an Allowance Optional Claiming on this track in October, a fourth in a similar race in September and a seventh in the Grade 3 Groupie Doll Stakes at Ellis Park in August. Pretty Fancy chases her first win in 13 months Friday in less-than-spectacular form. Joe Rocco gets the call from gate 8.
Sea Shadow 20-1 - winner of the 2015 minor Winter Melodies Stakes in May - Ben Colebrook trained mare has five wins, two seconds and four third place finishes in 19 career starts. She has placed in just one of her last six starts overall ahead of this race - that being a runner-up finish last time out in an Allowance Optional Claiming at Laurel Park February 2. Before that was a sixth in the minor Wintergreen Stakes at Turfway Park January 2, a fourth and a fifth respectively in a pair of Allowance Optional Claiming races in November, a seventh in the minor Pretty Plum Stakes in October and a ninth in the Grade 3 Obeah Stakes last June. Sea Shadow hasn't looked great lately but hopes to change all of that around Friday from gate 4. Javier Castellano rides.
