Dubai Majesty Wins the Incredible Revenge at Monmouth Park.

Dubai Majesty is no glamour mare. A one-time $25,000 claimer with 32 lifetime starts, Dubai Majesty has clawed her way toward the top of the filly-mare sprint ranks by churning out one big effort after another.

"She's one of those mares that brings her game every time," said her trainer, Bret Calhoun.

Although she would have to be made eligible to the $1 million Filly and Mare Sprint with a $180,000 supplementary fee, Dubai Majesty is being kept under consideration for the seven-furlong race, said Calhoun, "especially if she runs big Saturday" at Keeneland, where the final major prep for the Filly-Mare Sprint will be run. "We're on the bubble right now, but you can't rule it out," said Calhoun.

Dubai Majesty is one of a handful of Filly and Mare Sprint prospects who will clash in the Grade 2, $200,000 Thoroughbred Club of America, a six-furlong Polytrack race. Informed Decision, the defending divisional and Breeders' Cup champion, also is expected for the TCA, along with Dr. Zic, California shipper Sweet August Moon, and the 3-year-old standout, Champagne d'Oro.

Dubai Majesty, a 5-year-old Florida-bred with earnings of nearly $850,000, has run some particularly good races on the main track at Churchill, having won the Winning Colors Stakes there the last two years.

Meanwhile, Rightly So, the four-length winner of the Grade 1 Ballerina on Aug. 28 at Saratoga for Zayat Stables and trainer Tony Dutrow, remained sharp for the Breeders' Cup by breezing a half-mile Sunday in 47.60 at Delaware Park.
