Summerly Heads Strong Divisional Test in Mother Goose

A field of six fillies passed the entry box for Saturday's Mother Goose Stakes (gr. I) at Belmont Park. The 1 1/8-mile contest features a who's who of 3-year-olds and marks the grade I debut of Black-Eyed Susan Stakes (gr. II) winner Spun Sugar. She'll need to get by Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) star Summerly, though, if she is to take home top prize.
