The featured second on the program is a $40,000 optional claiming, “money since” allowance affair for fillies and mares three-years-old and upward slated for an eight and one half-furlong trip on the “Pea Patch” turf course.

Calumet Farm’s coupled entry of Coco Channel and Sea Swift (Ire) is the 2-1 morning line favorite in the field of seven that also includes one main track only entrant. Jockey Shaun Bridgmohan has the call on Coco Channel, a four-year-old daughter of English Channel, for trainer Charlie Lopresti. Declan Cannon will be astride the Irish raider Sea Swift (Ire), a five year-old High Chaparral (Ire) mare making her stateside debut for trainer Jack Sisterson.
