SAN MATEO, Calif. - Five of the six 3-year-olds in Sunday's Bay Meadows feature, a $40,000 starter allowance race at 1 1/16 miles on the turf, come off their turf debuts.

The field includes the first-place finisher and the runner-up from a similar race April 22 at Golden Gate Fields.

Plan for Fun showed grit in winning his maiden when he was stretched out in his second career start. He sat just off the pace early, took over at the quarter-pole, and withstood a stern challenge all the way down the lane.

Silent Speed, who recently won his maiden at a mile, makes his turf debut. He had a maintenance work since his victory, but needed to drop to a low level to get the win and has a relatively low Tomlinson turf rating.
