Birdatthewire returns to Gulfstream Park for the Princess Rooney Stakes (gr. II) on the Summit of Speed card. The switch of the race from six to seven furlongs should play to her favor.
Forever Unbridled continued her recent run of good form Jan. 30, taking over from pacesetter and defending race winner Cassatt to claim the $400,000 Houston Ladies Classic (gr. III) at Sam Houston Race Park.
Treated for a suspensory issue and osselets at Rood & Riddle, the 5-year-old daughter of Tapit returned in her second start off the layup to win the Dec. 13 She's All In Handicap. Her connections hope for another win Jan. 30.
Trainer Marty Wolfson will have Cali Star, Best Behavior, and Curlin's Princess in the one-turn-mile Rampart Stakes (gr. III) Dec. 12, and also has Lori's Store in the $100,000 South Beach on the Saturday card at Gulfstream.
