Race 3: Dearly Declared (#1)
- Got a peculiar ride last time when she was inexplicably rated in last in a race where she was projected to be the speed.
- Found the two-turn distances to be a little far for her at Gulfstream, so this turnback to 5 1/2 furlongs makes some sense.
- Adds blinkers to inject some speed on the turnback.

Race 7: Pillar Mountain (#9)

- Was very impressive when taking down the Appalachian over today’s rival Regal Glory.
- Her effective turn of foot should make her tough to reel in going this one-mile distance.
