2017 Groupie Doll Stakes Entries at Ellis Park
Tiger Moth 7-2
Has placed in 10 of 16 career starts for trainer Brad Cox - four wins, four seconds and two third-place finishes. Last time out was her first stakes win - the listed $100,000 Mari Hulman George Stakes at Indiana Grand July 15 after three straight off-the-board finishes in graded stakes action - a fifth in the G2 Fleur de Lis Handicap June 17, a sixth in the G3 Matron Stakes May 20 and a fourth in the G1 Apple Blossom Handicap April 14. She did finish third in the G2 Azeri Stakes at Oaklawn Park before that in March. Tiger Moth has been a tad difficult to figure out ahead of this weekend but will be chasing a second straight stakes win from gate 8. Corey Lanerie gets the call on the tepid morning line favorite.
Steve Asmussen trained mare has seven wins in her 14 career starts to go along with one second and one third-place finish. Last time out was a nice win in the listed $100,000 Iowa Distaff at Prairie Meadows July 7 after an unfortunate DNF after losing her jockey in the minor Spotted Horse Stakes at Evangeline June 2 and an Allowance score at Lone Star May 6. She failed to place in her previous two starts including a sixth in the G3 Houston Ladies Classic in January. She did win the minor Tiffany Lass Stakes at Fair Grounds before that. Danzatrice has yet to hit the board in her three graded stakes starts but arrives at this attempt in good form. Shaun Bridgmohan will be in the saddle of the second betting choice from post 7.

Has 13 career starts for trainer Ian Wilkes with four wins, two seconds and two third-place finishes. She won the G3 Matron Stakes at Churchill Downs May 20 but has failed to place in her two starts since. Last time out was a fifth in the listed Iowa Distaff at Prairie Meadows July 7 after a seventh in the G2 Fleur de Lis Handicap at Churchill Downs June 17. Walkabout has shown some serious form just this year and hopes to snap a bit of a funk Sunday when she leaves from post 9 with Brian Joseph Hernandez Jr. in the irons of the morning line third choice from post 9.
Won the 2016 G3 Doubledogdare Stakes at Keeneland and has been inconsistent since. Last time out was a fifth after tiring in the listed Mari Hulman George Stakes at Indiana Grand July 15 after an eighth, 19 1/2 lengths back in the listed Iowa Distaff July 7, a year away and a good win in the 2016 Mari Hulman George Stakes. Before that was a respectable second in the 2016 G2 Fleur de Lis Handicap in June, 2016, a third in the 2016 G3 Arlington Matron Stakes in May of that year and a fifth in the G1 La Troienne Stakes in May, 2016. Brooklynsway was awfully competitive at this time last year and will try to rediscover that form Sunday. She tries to snap a two-race losing streak from the outside post 12 with Calvin Borel in the reins.
Put Da Blame On Me 8-1
Has three wins, three seconds and three third-place finishes in 19 career starts for trainer Michael Tomlinson. She enters on a nice two-race win streak - both Allowance races at Churchill Downs with the last coming June 29. She has four graded stakes starts, placing in just one - that coming in June, 2016 in the G3 Iowa Oaks. She has placed in her last three starts overall (all Allowance races) and hopes to finally get that elusive first stakes score from the rail. James Graham has been tabbed to ride.
Student Body 10-1
Will race for the forth time for trainer Christopher Davis having posted two wins so far. She steps into stakes company for the first time Sunday off an 11 length Allowance score in this track July 14 which followed a ninth in an Allowance Optional Claiming at Churchill Downs June 24 and a maiden score at first asking on that track June 3. Student Body has been decent so far and hopes to make a name for herself in what represents a major step up in competition. Sophie Doyle is scheduled to ride.
Steve Asmussen trained filly has nine career starts with three wins, a second and a third-place finish. She finished an OK third in the 2016 G2 Fair Grounds Oaks and has been OK since. Last time out was an Allowance Optional Claiming score at Churchill Downs June 22 which followed a second in a similar race on that track May 27, 11 months away and consecutive fourths including the minor Panthers Stakes at Prairie Meadows last June. Her only other graded stakes result was an eighth in the G3 Edgewood Stakes at Churchill Downs in May, 2016. Adore has been improving lately and hopes for a first stakes score from post 5 with Gabriel Saez aboard.
Lightly raced Brendan Walsh trained filly has three wins and three seconds in nine career starts. She arrives off a career-worst effort - a seventh in the listed Mari Hulman George Stakes at Indiana Grand July 17 which followed an Allowance Optional Claiming score at Churchill Downs May 13 and consecutive seconds in a pair of similar races this past spring. Cced makes her graded stakes debut in so-so form and will be out to make some noise from gate 6 with Joe Rocco Jr. guiding her.
Pinch Hit 12-1
Brad Cox trained filly has three wins and two second-place finishes in seven career starts. She makes her stakes debut Sunday on a two-race win streak - an Allowance Optional Claiming last time out on this track July 16 and an Allowance at Churchill Downs May 27. Before that was a second in a Claiming April 23 and a Maiden Claiming score at Oaklawn Park March 23. Pinch Hit steps into stakes company for the first time in very good form and will have Fernando De La Cruz in the reins from gate 10.
She Mabee Wild 15-1
Mark Danner trained mare has 23 career starts with six wins, five seconds and four third-place finishes. She won the minor Richmond Stakes at Indiana Grand in October but has been inconsistent since. Last time out was a fourth in the G3 Chicago Handicap at Churchill Downs June 24 after an Allowance Optional Claiming score on that track May 27 and a second in a similar race there May 2. Her other two graded stakes results were a seventh in the G2 Azeri Stakes at Oaklawn Park in march and a fourth in the G2 Falls City Handicap at Churchill Downs in November. She Mabee Wild has been decent in Allowance company and hope it finally translates in top company Sunday. Jockey Jon Kenton Court will try to accomplish that goal from post 3.
Hone In 30-1
Has just three wins, three seconds and two third-place finishes in 26 career starts for trainer Victoria Oliver. She enters in less-than-spectacular form - failing to place in eight of her last nine starts. Last time out was a sixth in an Allowance Optional Claiming at Churchill Downs June 8 which followed an Allowance Optional Claiming score at Indiana Grand May 19 and off-the-board finishes in her previous seven. Her only graded stakes result was a sixth in the 2015 G3 Torrey Pines Stakes at Del Mar. Hone In hasn't been great but hopes to change things around from gate 4 Sunday. Miguel Mena rides.
She Takes Heart 30-1
Has just four wins in 19 career starts to go along with a pair of third-place finishes. She makes her graded stakes debut Sunday on a two-race win streak - an Allowance Optional Claiming last time out June 23 and an Allowance May 29 - both at Gulfstream. She placed in just one of her nine previous starts. For what its worth She Takes Heart arrives in career-best form but still looks as if she will be in over her head from gate 2. Channing Hill rides.
