One of the leading entrants among the field is KMN Racing’s I’m So Anna. The Fast Anna filly is trained by Steve Sherman.
She has a career record of 1-2-1 from four starts and earnings of $55,740.

She will be up against Alan Phillip Klein and Phillip Lebherz’s Miss Glorious. The daughter of Goldencents is trained by Andrew Lerner.
She is 1-0-2 from four career starts with earnings of $39,900.
The filly is coming off an Oct. 3 maiden special weight win at Golden Gate, which followed a third-place effort in an Aug. 31 maiden special weight race at Del Mar. She also took third in another back on May 29 at Santa Anita.
Miss Glorious will break from Post 7 under rider William Antongeorgi III.

The filly is coming off a disappointing seventh-place run in the Oct. 4 Surfer Girl Stakes at Santa Anita, which followed a Sept. 6 maiden special weight victory at Del Mar.

Risen Lady will break from Post 4 under Erick Lopez.
The rest of the field (post, jockey) is set to include: Mischief Free (Post 3, J. Wong), Momma Mocca (Post 5, R. E. Gonzalez), Sweetest Angel (Post 6, G. Papaprodromou), and New Ways to Dream (Post 8, B. W. Galvin).
Free Betting Pick
I’m So Anna looks good coming into this one, with one of her biggest challenges likely being Miss Glorious. However, the filly has experience at the track with her second-place run last time out, and she has performed well against stakes company.
