Janet, who likely will be on the lead, drew post position 4, and Voodoo Dancer drew the outside slot when entries were drawn Friday.
The Christophe Clement trainee from New York will carry high weight of 120 pounds, spotting her foes from one to eight pounds. Janet will carry 119.$150,000 Palomar Handicap (gr. IIT, F&M, 1 1/16 mile)
