WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Trainers Carl Anderson and Emile Corbel will saddle five of the eight fillies and mares entered in Sunday's $40,000 Winnipeg Sun Stakes here at Assiniboia Downs. Anderson sends out Remiewaterbluz, Vicar's Daughter, and Warmnfuzzyfeelin, while Corbel has Beshairt and Ericka's Lass in the 1 1/16-mile Winnipeg Sun.

Remiewaterbluz won the La Verendrye and Canada Day Stakes in her first two starts of the year before finishing second to Beshairt in the allowance prep for the Winnipeg Sun last time out.

Vicar's Daughter has not run since finishing second, 1 1/2 lengths behind Remiewaterbluz, in the Canada Day. Earlier, Vicar's Daughter was fifth in the La Verendrye.

Warmnfuzzyfeelin has won twice this year from four starts, all against claimers.

Beshairt won the allowance prep for the Winnipeg Sun in her return to Assiniboia Downs last time out. A 4-year-old daughter of Thunder Gulch, Beshairt finished second here twice against maiden special weight company toward the end of last season before running twice at Woodbine to end her 2005 campaign. This year Beshairt ran three times at Woodbine, scoring her initial win in her final start over the Toronto oval at the 1 1/16-mile distance of Sunday's race.

The lone win for Ericka's Lass this season came in the prep for the La Verendrye. Since then Ericka's Lass has finished second in the La Verendrye and third in the both the Canada Day and the allowance prep for this race.

Newcomer Lucky Gambler could upset the local contingent. Claimed back by owner Stewart Mettler for $25,000 at Arlington Park on May 13, Lucky Gambler has won four of 13 starts at 1 1/16 miles or a mile and 70 yards while amassing approximately half of her $180,058 in career earnings at the distances.

Pete's Surprise finished fourth in both the Canada Day and the allowance prep for this race. Drought Breaker, who was well beaten in the allowance prep, rounds out the field.

* The Max, winner of the 1 1/16-mile Derby Trial here July 16, heads a field of eight for Monday's $100,000 Manitoba Lotteries Derby. The field for the Manitoba Lotteries Derby, a 1 1/8-mile race for 3-year-olds, was announced at a special draw on Thursday.
