2017 Monmouth Oaks Entries at Monmouth Park
Bill Mott trained filly has hit the board in all five career starts - two wins, two seconds and a third-place finish. Last time out was a career-best effort - a win in the G3 Indiana Oaks May 15 - he stakes debut. Before that was a third in an Allowance Optional Claiming at Belmont Park June 1, a second in an Allowance on that track May 3 and a maiden score at Gulfstream April 5. Overture has been a factor in every race so far and hopes to be again Saturday. She shoots for her second straight graded stakes win from post 3. Joe Bravo gets the call in the morning line favorite.
My Miss Tapit 3-1
Will hit the track for the fourth time Saturday for trainer Todd Pletcher looking for a strong bounce back performance. Her first two starts have resulted in two wins - the minor Game Face Stakes by 1 1/4 lengths April 22 and a 2 1/2 length maiden score March 10 - both at Gulfstream. Last time out however was a disappointing fourth in her graded stakes bow - the G2 Mother Goose Stakes at Belmont Park July 1. My Miss Tapit looked very impressive before her last start and hopes to prove that result was the exception, not the rule. Eddie Castro has the mount on the co-second choice from gate 2.
Proud and Fearless 3-1
Has placed in five of seven career starts for trainer Larry Jones - three wins and two third-place finishes. Last time out was a good runner-up finish in the G3 Delaware Oaks July 8 which followed a three-race win streak including two Allowance Optional Claiming races. Proud and Fearless certainly didn't look out of place in her step up last time out and looks for a first stakes win from gate 8. Brian Pedroza is scheduled to ride the other morning line co-second choice.

Frank's Folly 6-1
Has 10 career starts already for trainer Kelly Breen - two wins, a second and two third-place finishes. Last time out was a fifth in the listed Boiling Springs Stakes July 15 after an Allowance Optional Claiming score June 24 and a third in an Allowance May 29 - all on this track. Before that was a third in the minor Weber City Miss Stakes at Laurel Park April 22 an a second and a fourth respectively in a pair of Allowance Optional Claiming races at Parx this past spring. Frank's Folly has been OK in her career so far but is still in search of a first stakes win. Frankie Pennington will try to deliver that win from gate 4 Saturday.
Teresa Z 8-1
Anthony Margotta trained filly has two wins, two seconds and two third-place finishes in her nine career starts. She makes her graded stakes debut Saturday off an Allowance score at Penn National July 8, a third in the minor Light Hearted Stakes at Delaware Park June 15 and consecutive seconds with the last coming on this track May 20. Teresa Z has placed in six straight races ahead of this weekend and will chase a first stakes score from post 5. Nik Juarez rides.
You Know Too 8-1
Michael Gorham trained filly has two wins and a second-place finish in her five career starts. Last time out was an OK fourth in the G3 Delaware Oaks July 8 which followed an Allowance score at Delaware Park June 5, a fifth in the G1 Spinaway Stakes at Saratoga September 3 and a decent second in the minor White Clay Creek Stakes at Delaware Park last August. You Know Too has been OK so far and will be out to hit the board for the first time in graded stakes action - in her third try. Alex Cintron gets the call from post 7.
Has placed in eight of 10 career starts for trainer Terrel Gore - four wins, three seconds and a third-place finish. Last time out was a very respectable second in the G3 Iowa Oaks at Prairie Meadows July 6 which followed a nice win in the minor Purple Violet Stakes at Arlington June 3 and a fifth and a second respectively in a pair of Allowance Optional Claiming races earlier this year. Before that was a nice three-race win streak - the best of which coming in the minor Illinois Debutante Stakes at Hawthorne Park in December. Babybluesbdancing has been especially tough in graded stakes action and hopes to win her first graded stakes race Saturday from gate 6. Antonio Gallardo has the mount.
Who's the Lady 15-1
Has five wins in seven career starts for trainer Kathleen O'Connell. Last time out was a good win in the minor Azalea Stakes at Gulfstream Park July 1 which followed a couple of underwhelming results - a seventh in the minor Crank It Up Stakes on this track June 10 and an eleventh in her only graded stakes action to date - the G3 Miss Preakness Stakes May 19. She won her first four career starts - the best of which came in the listed Any Limit Stakes at Gulfstream in March. Who's the Lady has been very impressive at times and looks to be over her mini-slump. She chases a first graded stakes score from the outside post 9. Carlos Hernandez rides.
Sine Wave 15-1
Has placed in four of five career starts for trainer Benjamin W. Perkins Jr. - three wins and a second-place finish. She arrives off an Allowance Optional Claiming score at Penn National July 12 which followed a seventh in the minor Alma North Stakes at Laurel Park June 17 and a second in his only graded stakes action to date - the G3 Beaumont Stakes at Keeneland April 9. She won her first two career starts as well. Sine Wave has been competitive so far but has yet to post a stakes score. Jockey Albin Jimenez has been tabbed with changing all of that from the rail.
