The mile turf event is a Breeders' Cup Challenge "Win and You're In" race for the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (gr. IT) Oct. 30 at Keeneland, awarding the winner an automatic place in the starting gate.
Putting her streak on the line in open company will be undefeated Ontario-bred Caren, who took the Shady Well Stakes and Nandi Stakes, both sprinting on the Woodbine all-weather track, after breaking her maiden on that surface for trainer Michael De Paulo as well.
The only runner in the bunch to have raced at least a mile is the Scat Daddy filly Silky Girl, who cuts back after breaking her maiden at 1 1/16 miles on the Saratoga Race Course lawn. The Rick Violette Jr. trainee is one of seven in the bunch who scored their first win last out.
Included in that number is Graham Motion-trained Know Clouds, who rolled by 6 1/4 lengths on the synthetic surface at Presque Isle Downs Aug. 11; Most Inspiring, a July 31 winner at six furlongs on the Woodbine turf; and Gamble's Ghost, who romped by 8 1/4 Aug. 14 going seven furlongs on the all-weather there.
Chinchilla Dust, who won sprinting 5 1/2 furlongs on the Saratoga lawn Aug. 20, and Catch a Glimpse, a winner going seven furlongs on the Woodbine grass Aug. 22, are the other recent winners along with She'll Do It, who moves to turf after winning on all-weather Aug. 8 at Woodbine.
