Both fillies are two-time grade I winners at Belmont, where Critical Eye won the 2001 running of this race. The Ogden Phipps offers a $300,000 purse and is open to fillies and mares three years old and up. It was formerly called the Hempstead Handicap.
Added-money winners Atelier, Mystic Lady, Shiny Band, and Two Item Limit are expected to join the field for Saturday's race. Possible entrants are Happily Unbridled, Too Scarlet, and Transcendental. Raging Fever is the current highweight with a 120 assignment.
