Last year's Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) winner, Peachtree Stable's Plum Pretty, will carry top weight of 117 pounds in the 1 1/16-mile event for fillies and mares on the main track.
Hilda's Passion, a two-time graded stakes winner this season at Gulfstream Park, heads a strong field of eight older fillies and mares in the $300,000 Humana Distaff Stakes (gr. I) at Churchill Downs May 7.
Plum Pretty, shipping from Southern California for trainer Bob Baffert, humbled five rivals by a Rachel Alexandra-like 25 lengths as the 1-20 favorite in the $200,000 Sunland Park Oaks in New Mexico March 27.
