The Grade 1 Prioress Stakes for 3-year old fillies features a cast of 8 headed by the Todd Pletcher trained Light Green. She is coming off just a restricted stakes win in May and is stepping up in class, but she boasts the highest Beyer Speed Figure of the group with a 109 in her last, making her the one to beat. Not to be dismissed is Gabby's Golden Gal who won the Grade 1 Acorn over the Belmont Park strip, and now cuts back in distance to 6 furlongs, though she has shown she can win at this distance before. Heart Ashley is trying to extend her three race winning streak and is coming off a narrow victory in the Grade 3 Miss Preakness Stakes at Pimlico. Her Beyer last out was relatively light so she has to step it up to compete. Cat Moves is coupled with Light Green in the betting for the actual race though they are treated as separate entries for the pre-built race. Cat Moves is two for two and moves from an allowance race to a Grade 1 stakes, she has an abundance of talent and gets Ramon Dominguez as the pilot, but she will have to really step up today. Selva came in second in the Grade 2 Beaumont Stakes at Keeneland but that was over the polytrack surface, which is very different from the sandy Belmont track. Still, she has finished first or second in all six of her career races. On the Menu, Be Fair, Reforestation, and Luster complete the lineup.
