Category : News - Thu 29/10/2015 - 22:29 EDT

On Saturday at Keeneland, some of the fastest fillies and mares in the world will meet up in the $1 million Breeders Cup Filly and Mare Sprint. Carded at seven furlongs on the main track, the Grade 1 has drawn a field of fourteen.

Cavorting has been tabbed as the morning line favorite at odds of 3-1 for trainer Kiaran McLaughlin. A three-year-old daughter of Bernardini, she was purchased for $360,000 by Stonestreet Stables and has won five of her seven starts. She is coming into this race off of a three-race win streak and was last seen delivering as the favorite in the Prioress Stakes (G2) at Saratoga. Regular rider Irad Ortiz, Jr. will be aboard and they will break from the outside post.

Stonetastic rounding into form off layoff

Second choice at morning line odds of 5-1 is Stonetastic for trainer Kelly Breen. A four-year-old daughter of Mizzen Mast, she has won four of her twelve starts and has been on the board nine times. She returned to action off of an eight-month layoff in August with a runner-up effort in the Shine Again Stakes and was last seen romping in an optional claiming race at Parx. Paco Lopez will be aboard as she steps back up to graded stakes company from post eight.

Judy the Beauty trying for a repeat victory

Also in the field at morning line odds of 6-1 is the defending Filly and Mare Sprint (G1) winner, Judy the Beauty. Trained and owned by Wesley Ward, the six-year-old daughter of Ghostzapper has gone winless since her triumph in this race last year and was last seen finishing third in the Thoroughbred Charities of America Stakes (G2) as the heavy favorite. She will get a jockey change to Frankie Dettori and they will break from post position eleven.
