The $200,000 Distaff Handicap (gr. II) Saturday, April 18 at Aqueduct Racetrack has attracted just four fillies and mares, led by Mamdooha and La Verdad.
Shadwell Stable's homebred Mamdooha shrugged off a nearly year-long layoff to win her fifth straight race and fourth straight stakes in the $100,000 Correction Stakes March 14 at Aqueduct Racetrack.
