Daddys Lil Darling is the lone graded stakes winner entered in the $200,000 Golden Rod Stakes (gr. II) for juvenile fillies at Churchill Downs Nov. 26, but she'll face plenty of competition.

Trainer Christophe Clement is still seeking his first Breeders' Cup victory, but could be situated to break through Nov. 5 in the $2 million Juvenile Fillies (gr. I) at Santa Anita Park.
