Most of original cast shows up at Philly

Five of the seven 2-year-old fillies who were scheduled to compete in the $75,000 Brandywine Stakes at Philadelphia Park last week are back in the lineup for Monday's revised edition of the six-furlong overnight stakes on the dirt main track.

Among the original contenders, only Rules R Rules, the winner of the Finger Lakes Juvenile Filly two months ago, and Insurance Money were not entered when the race was redrawn after last Monday's program was canceled due to a storm that dumped two feet of snow in the Philadelphia area.

The one new addition is Our Eponene, who becomes part of a Cathal Lynch-trained coupled entry with Lil Kiara, winner of the Maryland Million Lassie in September. Although Our Eponene remains a maiden after two starts, she missed by a nose after nearly leading wire to wire in the New Jersey Futurity at the Meadowlands.

Romantic Hideaway, an easy winner in her local debut last month, and Simply Spiteful, third in a pair of overnight stakes in New York, own the best last-out Beyer Speed Figures in Monday's six-horse field.

Trained by New Jersey-based Greg Sacco, Romantic Hideaway will be seeking her third straight win after posting back-to-back 76 Beyers in a maiden race at Monmouth Park and a first-level allowance locally. She has already proven to be versatile, winning on the front end and from off the pace.

Simply Spiteful, based at the Fair Hill Training Center with trainer Mike Trombetta, crushed eight maiden rivals by nearly eight lengths at Delaware Park in late September, earning a 76 Beyer. Since then, she has been competitive in back-to-back small stakes in New York, running well enough to earn a career-best 78 Beyer earlier this month over Aqueduct's inner track.

Simply Spiteful tuned up for Monday's start by working four furlongs over the synthetic surface at Fair Hill in 48.00 seconds last Tuesday.

Listen In, who dominated Pennsylvania-breds in the Blue Mountain at Penn National last time out, merits respect in this spot.

The sleeper could be Vindy City, who won her career debut by leading 10 rivals wire to wire.
