Second choice at 7-2 on the morning line is Marbre Rose (IRE) for trainer Christophe Clement. She has won three of her eleven starts and was a minor stakes winner at Gulfstream Park last year. She has improved with each start this year and was last seen finishing second in the Intercontinental Stakes at Belmont in June. Irad Ortiz, Jr. will be in the irons and they will break from post position eight.
Patsy's Holiday looking for second stakes win
Also in the field at morning line odds of 8-1 is Patsy’s Holiday for trainer Todd Pletcher.

She was second last time out in the Miss Liberty Stakes and will have Luis Saez aboard as she tries to earn her first victory of the year from post position five.
