NOTABLE WORKOUT INFORMATION:  Worked 1 furlong in 10.0 prior to the February auction

Analysis:
DYNAZAPER seems primed for a good performance.  In her most recent start at Saratoga, the half-sister to stakes-placed sprinter Santa Croce hopped at the start before rushing up to battle for the lead from the outside.  She took over in midstretch, but understandably faltered over that closer-favoring main track.  Dynazaper "was not asked for effort," according to the Keeneland Clocker Report for October 26, a bullet workout in 47.40.  She should be prominently-placed from the outset under Kent Desormeaux.
HEAVENLY COURT worked "together with Clear Sailing, these two had a sharp effort from the gate," according to the Keeneland Clocker Report for October 24.  Clear Sailing is a three-year-old filly that finished third in her only start to date (Churchill Downs, 6/13/08).  Heavenly Court has lots of blacktype in her pedigree, and should offer some wagering value. 
RENDITION exits a key "off-the-turf" race at Saratoga that produced next-out P. G. Johnson Stakes heroine Tapitsfly (81 Beyer), and Zilva (won maiden on grass with 76, then finished fourth in the Grade 1 Alcibiades at Keeneland).  She's been freshened since her last start, and is expected to move forward here.
ENTOMOLOGY chased Sing Sing Cindrela over Kentucky Downs sod, and that one returned to upset 'n2L' allowance company over the polytrack on October 10 with a 63 Beyer.  Entomology figures to be up close to the lead heading into the turn.
LIFE BEGINS gained a "slight edge on Military Pike in a good useful effort," according to the Keeneland Clocker Report for October 6.  A week later, she reportedly worked in company with That Luvin Feeling, "both were in restraint, difficult to separate."  On October 23, the clocker noted that she "started a length or so behind Impressionist and was clearly the better of the two at the finish."  Military Pike and Impressionist are unraced juveniles while That Luvin Feeling finished fourth with a 63 Beyer when debuting for an $80,000 tag on October 24.  HARLAN'S PRINCESS had to work hard in the early stages of her career debut before packing it in late.  She draws the far outside post, and may work out a nice stalking trip while clear of traffic. Note that a 40-1 debut runner won that heat at Keeneland on October 11. It looks like SACRED FOREST has been picking up the pace during her recent workouts, but the half-sister to Blue Grass winner Sinister Minister may want a bit more ground.  DARLING DESHA's workouts fail to excite.  TOLL's dam, Yell, earned a 102 Beyer Speed Figure winning the Grade 2 Raven Run over the old Keeneland main track, and will debut for sharp connections.  LADY LAURIE SNOW may need a start while REBA'S VALUES and ADORABELLA could be in a bit steep.
