Two half-length losses from arguably being a champion, Top Decile has zeroed in on the listed $125,000 Silverbulletday Stakes Jan. 17 at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots as her sophomore debut for trainer Al Stall Jr.
Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas said the game plan at this time for Take Charge Brandi, leading contender for champion 2-year-old filly honors, includes the Longines Kentucky Oaks and none of the Triple Crown preps.
