Explore - Chandelier Stakes | Secretariat's World
A field of eight have been confirmed for the Gr.1 Chandelier Stakes with Simon Callaghan trained Moonshine Memories turning favourite. She will race for the third time Saturday looking to remain undefeated after a wire-to-wire win last time out in the Gr.1 Del Mar Debutante Stakes. Doug O'Neill trained filly Piedi Bianchi, who finished a decent second behind Moonshine Memories in the Debutante Stakes will look to even the score. Terra's Angel has been competitive so far and hopes for a first stakes score Saturday with Sasha Risenhoover after a nice upset win in the listed Juvenile Fillies Turf Stakes. Dancing Belle ridden by Kent Desormeaux will chase a first career victory and enters in decent form. Just a Smidge will race from the outside gate under “big bucks” Mike Smith for trainer Bob Baffert having posted one recent win.
The race formerly run as the Oak Leaf Stakes, has been won by Hall of Fame mare Serena's Song and Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies winners Halfbridled, Sweet Catomine, Stardom Bound and Songbird and Kentucky Oaks winner Blind Luck. Chandelier Stakes which automatic starting spot in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile, calls for the best in this category to compete for the coveted spot.
