The lone 3-year-old in the field, Splendid in Spring, is 2 for 2 since being claimed for $50,000 earlier this year at Churchill Downs. Splendid in Spring is trained by Tom Amoss and will be ridden by Glenn Corbett, the leading rider at Prairie Meadows.

Another Audible makes her second start away from Nebraska after dominating her competition earlier this year. A 4-year-old daughter of Menifee, Another Audible failed as the 1-2 favorite in a two-furlong sprint last out. She'll be ridden for the first time by Alex Birzer.
