Simon Callaghan trained filly will race for the third time Saturday looking to remain undefeated. She won her first career start by one length at Del Mar August 19 and followed that with a terrific eye-opening wire-to-wire win last time out in the G1 Del Mar Debutante Stakes September 2. Moonshine Memories hasn't been touched so far and looks for a second G1 score Saturday. Flavien Prat gets the call from post 3.
Doug O'Neill trained filly has a win and two second-place finishes in her three career starts. She made her stakes debut last time out and finished a decent second at 18-1 behind Moonshine Memories in the G1 Del Mar Debutante Stakes September 2. Before that was a 1 1/4 length maiden score at Del Mar August 12 and a second in her debut at Los Alamitos July 6. Piedi Bianchi has gotten better every time out and hopes to keep the upward trend going Saturday. Mario Gutierrez has the mount from post 7.

Has three career starts for trainer Dallas Keen with two wins and a third-place finish. Last time out was a nice upset win in the listed Del Mar Juvenile Fillies Turf Stakes September 4 after an OK third in the G2 Sorrento Stakes on that track and a maiden score at first asking - at Lone Star in May. Terra's Angel has been competitive so far and hopes for a first stakes score Saturday with Sasha Risenhoover in the reins from gate 5.
Keith Desormeaux trained filly has two seconds and a third-place finish in her five career starts. Last time out was an OK fourth in the G1 Del Mar Debutante Stakes September 2 which followed a very respectable second behind Spectator in the G2 Sorrento Stakes on that track August 5, another second in a MSW on this track July 23, a third in a similar race at Santa Anita July 2 and a sixth in her debut June 9. Dancing Belle will chase a first career victory and enters in decent form. Kent Desormeaux rides from the rail.
Will hit the track for the third time for trainer Bob Baffert having posted one win thus far - a maiden score at Del Mar July 19. Last time out was a somewhat unsuccessful step up into stakes company - a fifth in the G1 Del Mar Debutante Stakes September 2. Just a Smidge has been training well and hopes her works translate to the big race Saturday. Mike Smith will be in the irons from the outside gate 8.
Bob Baffert trained filly has just one career start and it was a good one - a 2 1/2 length maiden score at Del Mar September 3. She tries to make it two-for-two to start her career with Joe Talamo guiding her from gate 2.
Christopher Davis trained filly has just one career start - it resulted in a second-place finish in a MSW race at Del Mar September 4. Super Good hopes to break her maiden Saturday in what represents a huge step up in competition. Gary Stevens has been tabbed to ride from gate 4.
Charles Stutts trained filly has five career starts already with one win and a pair of third-place finishes. She enters off an underwhelming stakes debut - a fifth in the minor Del Mar Juvenile Fillies Turf Stakes September 4 which followed a maiden score at Gulfstream July 16 and a third, a ninth and another third respectively in a trio of MSW races to start her career. Holy Diver has been just OK so far and shoots for a career-best effort from gate 6. Modesto Lineares gets the call.
