Juddmonte Farm's Sightseek, a runner-up to Starrer in the recent Santa Margarita (gr. I) at Santa Anita, is the 2-1 morning-line favorite in a field of eight in the $200,000 Humana Distaff Handicap at seven furlongs for older fillies and mares at Churchill Downs.
The 17th running of the Humana Distaff is one of three grade I races on Saturday's Churchill card, along with the Kentucky Derby and the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic.
Jerry Bailey will ride Sightseek, the daughter of Distant View who is bidding for her first grade I stakes victory for trainer Bobby Frankel. She won the Top Flight (gr. II) last fall at Aqueduct.
Edward P. Evans' Gold Mover carries high weight of 119 pounds following her recent victory in the Hurricane Bertie Stakes at Gulfstream Park. She has won 12 of 27 races and earned $1,140,530 for trainer Mark Hennig. Edgar Prado will ride the daughter of Gold Fever.
Other stakes winners in the field include Fog City Stable's Spring Meadow, Richard Colton and Mast Thoroughbreds' Miss Lodi, Live Oak Plantation's Slews Final Answer, Preston and Sutherland's Palmarola, and Mike Rutherford's Sixtyone Margaux. $200,000-added Humana Distaff (gr.
