Here is a quick look at the two stakes:
The Yellow Ribbon
It is going to be tough to beat the Phil D’Amato trained Going Global. The filly was the beaten chalk last out in the Gamely (FG1) at Santa Anita going 1 1/8 miles in a third-place finish. She came off the bench two back to win the Royal Heroine (G2) going a mile. She has done some of her best work over the Del mar turf. Last summer she ran second in the San Clemente (G3) and then won the Del Mar Oaks (G1). She followed that up with a victory here in the Goldikova (G2) at the fall meeting. Rispoli is back on board and she should get a perfect trip sitting just off the pace.
Park Avenue is coming off a smart win in the Ouija Board Distaff at Lone Star going a mile back in May. The runner up in the race was Avenue de France who came back to win the restricted Osunitas here on July 23 and is in this field as well.
Flippant is coming off a victory in the Indiana General Assembly Distaff at Horseshoe Indy where she earned a career top speed figure. She makes her third start off the layoff while picking up Bravo. She needs some pace in front of her.
The Doug O’Neill trained Absolutely Zero is one of two just two in here that has beaten winners. She broke her maiden going 4 ½ furlongs at Santa Anita taking a ton of action. She then came back to win the Fasig Tipton Futurity last out going five furlongs. He dueled for the early lead and finished up well at 4-5 to win by a length. Four have come out of that race to run back with a couple of fourths the best finishes. She is b Nyquist out of the stakes winner How About Zero and looks capable of sitting off the pace here. The extra furlong should suit her.
Satin Doll will also be saddled by O’Neill who has won this race twice but not since 2013. This filly came with a good late rally to upset the field at 31-1 in her debut. She will appreciate the added furlong and should get an honest pace in front of her.
Procrastination draws the rail and figures to be sent. She wired the field in her debut, drawing off to win by eight lengths at Los Al. She did not beat much, five she beat have come back to run with a third the best finish.
