2016 Eatontown Stakes Race Preview at Monmouth Park
Isabella Sings 6-5 - Todd Pletcher trained filly has five wins and four second place finishes in 14 career starts. She enters off a nice win in the minor Miss Liberty Stakes here May 29 which followed an uncharacteristic seventh in the Grade 2 Churchill Distaff Turf Mile May 7, a second behind the fabulous Tepin in the Grade 2 Hillsborough Stakes in March and a career best effort - a win in the Grade 2 Mrs. Revere Stakes at Churchill Downs November 14. Before that was a fourth in the minor Pebble Stakes October 12, a respectable second in the Grade 3 Boiling Springs Stakes in September and a nice win in the minor Little Silver Stakes at Monmouth Park in July. Isabella Sings has two wins and a runner-up finish in three starts on this track and will try to win her second straight here from the rail with Paco Lopez aboard the obvious favorite.
Bureau de Change 9-2 - Brian Lynch trained mare has four wins and two third place finishes in 11 career starts. She has failed in her last three starts however - in all three of her stakes starts to date. Last time out was a fifth in the Grade 2 Churchill Distaff Turf Mile May 7 after a fourth in the Grade 2 Hillsborough Stakes March 12 and a fifth in the Grade 3 Endeavour Stakes at Tampa Bay February 13. Before that were two straight Allowance Optional Claiming scores this past winter. Bureau de Change looked good against lesser competition but hasn't been great against graded stakes company. Jockey Victor Lebron will try to change all of that from post 3 Saturday as the slight second betting choice.

Invading Humor 5-1 - Bruce Levine trained mare won the minor Ticonderoga Stakes at Belmont Park in October and also won the minor Mount Vernon Stakes on that track last May and the minor John Hettinger Stakes in 2014 but has mostly been unflattering outside of those results. Last time out was a second in the 2016 Mount Vernon Stakes May 30 which followed a seventh in the Grade 3 Cardinal Handicap at Churchill Downs November 21. She has shown form in the past and searches for her first graded stakes score Saturday from the outside gate 8 with Kendrick Carmouche in the reins of the third betting choice.
Nisharora 6-1 - Irish bred Kelly Rubley trained mare has 12 career starts with three wins, two seconds and two third place finishes. She enters off an unsuccessful graded stakes debut - a ninth in the Grade 3 Gallorette Handicap at Pimlico May 21 after an OK third in the minor Dahlia Stakes at Laurel Park April 16 and an Allowance Optional Claiming score at Gulfstream December 27. She looks for her first stakes score Saturday off a career worst effort - from the rail with Antonio Gallardo aboard.
Sea Coast 6-1 - Irish bred Christophe Clement trained mare won two of 12 starts at home before shipping and has been decent in four races since. She has four North American starts (all Allowance Optional Claiming races) with a win last time out here May 28, a fifth June 30 and consecutive runner-up finishes in 2015. Sea Coast steps up in decent form and will be after her first stakes/group win from post 5. Joe Bravo will be in the saddle.
My Cara Mia 8-1 - Mitchell Friedman trained filly has three wins, a second and two third place finishes in 15 career starts and makes her graded stakes debut Saturday. Last time out was an Allowance Optional Claiming score at Belmont Park May 27 after a fourth, a third and an eighth respectively in a trio of Allowance Optional Claiming races earlier this year. Her only two graded stakes starts resulted in seventh place finishes - back in 2014. My Cara Mia has been just OK against lesser competition and chases her first stakes win Saturday. She leaves from post 7 with a yet-to-be-named jockey.
Means Well 10-1 - Alan Goldberg trained mare enters off an Allowance Optional Claiming score at Pimlico June 2 after a fourth in the minor Plenty of Grace Stakes in April and an eighth and a fifth respectively in a pair of Allowance Optional Claiming races in November. She has yet to place in three graded stakes tries - a fourth in the Grade 3 Violet Stakes August 9 followed consecutive fifths - the Grade 3 Matchmaker Stakes August 2 and the Grade 3 Dr. James Penny Memorial Stakes in July. Means Well has placed in just one of her last seven starts ahead of this week - that being a win last time out but still arrives in less-than -spectacular form. Pablo Fragoso rides from gate 6.
Camille Claudel 20-1 - Francis Abbott trained mare has three wins and three runner-up finishes in 10 career starts but has yet to place in three stakes tries. Last time out was an eighth in the Grade 3 Distaff Stakes at Pimlico May 20 after alternating wins and runner-up finishes in four Allowance races and a fourth in the 2014 Gulfstream Park Oaks. Camille Claudel has been good in Allowance company but hasn't shown up in stakes races so far. Gabriel Saez gets the call hoping to change her fortunes around against top competition from gate 4 Saturday.
