The race is restricted to 'the progeny of sires that have donated a season to the GTOBA Stallion Auction of 2005' and fits as a prep for the $100,000 Tropical Park Oaks to be run at Calder on Grand Slam III day Jan. 1.
A roan/grey daughter of Wild Event, 'Classysassy' is a $32,000 OBS April 2-year-old purchase. She has won five of six starts and earned $488,000 for owners Barbara Vivian and Dominick Vittese.
Regular rider Manuel Aguilar will be aboard Sunday for veteran horseman Dave Vivian who picked the filly out for purchase in spite of her diminutive size. She was entered in the $100,000 Three Ring Stakes last Saturday as the heavy favorite but scratched after spiking a slight temperature two days before.
Her most formidable rival in the Georgia Debutante will be J D Farm's homebred Dansetta Light, who ran a big race to finish second in the $100,000 John Franks Juvenile Fillies Turf Nov. 13.
