Sensible Lady heads a field of 11 fillies and mares in the Turf Amazon Handicap.

Sensible Lady will try to pick up her third stakes win of the season while grade I winner Pool Play will try to get untracked when the two multiple stakes winners start in stakes Sept. 2 at Parx Racing

Richard Santulli's Sensible Lady heads a field of 11 fillies and mares (including one entered under main-track-only conditions) in the $200,000 Turf Amazon Handicap. The five-furlong turf event is the sister race of the Turf Monster Handicap (gr. III) scheduled later in the day.

Sensible Lady enters the Turf Amazon off a seventh-place finish in the Royal North Stakes (Can-III) July 28 at Woodbine. Earlier this year she won the Buckland Stakes at Colonial Downs and the Very One Stakes at Pimlico Race Course–winning the latter for a second straight year.

Meanwhile, grade I winner Pool Play will try 1 1/2 miles in the $200,000 Greenwood Cup Stakes (gr. III), one of four stakes on Monday's card. Winner of the 2011 Stephen Foster Handicap (gr. I) at Churchill Downs, Bill Farish's Pool Play enters off an unplaced finish in the Nijinsky Stakes (Can-II) July 21 at Woodbine.

The Greenwood Cup field also includes 2010 Breeders' Cup Marathon (gr. II) winner Eldaafer and locally based Chief Energy, who will try for his first stakes placing after winning an allowance-optional claiming race Aug. 3 at Parx.
