Swettenham Stud's homebred 6-year-old Changing Skies won the $100,000 The Very One Stakes (gr. IIIT) a year ago and returns as the likely favorite in the 1 3/8-mile turf contest Feb. 20 at Gulfstream Park.
Favored Changing Skies pounced on Casablanca Smile in the stretch and proved a handy 3 3/4-length winner of the $100,000 La Prevoyante Handicap (gr. IIIT) on the turf at Calder Casino and Race Course Jan. 2.
Trainer Christophe Clement will seek his fifth victory in the $150,000 Sheepshead Bay Stakes (gr. IIT) when he sends out a pair of inexperienced but promising fillies making their stakes debuts in the 11-furlong turf event
