Lull won 2017 Kentucky Downs Ladies Sprint Stakes. She won Honey Fox Stakes (Grade IIIT) over a mile at Gulfstream Park in March. She ran second in her next two races and finished third in both the Longines Just a Game Stakes (GIT) and Royal North Stakes (GIIT).

Ruby Notion won her last race the Caress Stakes at Saratoga Race Course. She ran 13th in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1T) at Keeneland.

Con Te Partiro will make her first trip over the Kentucky Downs turf in the Ladies Sprint. She has a pair of third-place finishes and two fourth-place finishes in 2018.

Brielle’s Appeal won two Allowance races in 2018. She is not proven with stakes runners but should control the pace of this race.
