Unbeaten Enola Gray will be a heavy favorite in Sunday's Beverly Lewis Stakes.

A day later than scheduled, the $75,000 Beverly Lewis Stakes for 3-year-old fillies will be run at Los Alamitos on Sunday.

Racing secretary Bob Moreno said on Thursday that the Lewis had five entries. The race was scheduled for Saturday but drew insufficient entries on Wednesday.

The Lewis will be run at six furlongs. The field is led by Enola Gray, who is unbeaten in three starts and will be a heavy favorite. With a small field and a heavy favorite, Moreno said the Lewis will not have show wagering.

A filly such as Enola Gray likely would draw six-figure show bets, potentially resulting in a minus show pool that would cost the track or simulcast locations handle revenue on commissions from the race.
