Augustin Stable’s homebred Fugitive Angel, runaway winner of the Pin Oak Valley View (gr. IIIT) at Keeneland on Oct. 22 in her most recent start, heads a field of 11 3-year-old fillies for the $175,000 Mrs. Revere (gr. IIT) Nov. 20 at Churchill Downs.

The Mrs. Revere will be run at 1 1/16 miles on the turf and will go as the ninth race on Saturday’s 10-race program with an approximate post time of 4:37 p.m. EST.
Trained by Jonathan Sheppard, Fugitive Angel brings a four-race win streak into the Mrs. Revere. Jockey Rosie Napravnik has been aboard the daughter of Alphabet Soup   for the past three triumphs, which include two in state-bred stakes races in Pennsylvania and the filly’s 3 3/4-length victory at Keeneland. Napravnik has the Mrs. Revere mount on Fugitive Angel, who will break from post 6 and carry top weight of 119 pounds.
Two other graded stakes winners are in the field: Lawrence Peifer’s Dade Babe and Barbara Hunter’s Snow Top Mountain.
Dade Babe, trained by Danny Miller, won the Pucker Up (gr. IIIT) in wire-to-wire fashion at Arlington Park on Sept. 6 and Snow Top Mountain, trained by Tom Proctor, was awarded the top prize in the Arlington Park Oaks (gr. IIIT) via disqualification in July. The two fillies finished fourth and fifth, respectively, in Keeneland’s Queen Elizabeth Challenge Cup (gr. IT) won by Harmonious. Snow Top Mountain also was a closing runner-up to Check the Label in Belmont’s Sept. 18 Garden City (gr. IT).
Another intriguing entrant is Flaxman Holdings’ Aruna, who is unbeaten in two starts for trainer Graham Motion since her arrival in the United States from France. Ramon Dominguez will ride the Mr. Greeley filly for Motion, who saddled Shared Interest for her upset win over defending champion Midday in the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf (gr. IT) on Nov. 5 at Churchill.
