The field for the 1 1/16-mile Canadian Turf is likely to include a couple of starters from trainer Bill Mott's deep stable. Live Oak Plantation' s Miesque's Approval, who was beaten just a half-length by Political Attack when second in last year's running, is expected to return. Del Mar Show, owned by Allen E. Paulson Living Trust, tuned up for the stakes by running a close second here last out in an allowance race. The Sunwannee River, at 1 1/8-miles for fillies and mares, is expected to lure a full field, including Robert S. Evans' New Economy, who has won graded stakes the past two seasons. The Red Ransom filly took the La Prevoyante (gr. II) at Calder in 2002 and last year captured the My Charmer Handicap (gr. III).
The Gaily Gaily will attract some up-and-coming turf stars, including Kenneth and Sarah Ramsey's Last Waltz, who has won twice on grass and last out was third in the Tropical Park Oaks, and Elaine, Richard, and Bertram Klein's Hot Mail, who finished just behind Last Waltz when they met in a maiden turf event last year.
