Following the early defection of Bridehampton (Bernardini) and the gate scratch of favored Lighthouse Bay (Speightstown), this already compact field was whittled down to three. Heavily favored Maracuya jumped out to take a short early lead over Baby J as Profitiza trailed far behind through early splits of :22.73 and :46.17. Hitting the stretch just over a length in front, Maracuya began to weaken in the final sixteenth, giving Baby J the opening she needed to get up for a narrow score. Baby J was third in the GII Schuyllerville S. before finishing runner-up in the GII Matron S. for Rick Dutrow Jr. at two. A winner for her new trainer Pat Reynolds in her seasonal debut in the Belmont slop in a $75,000 optional claimer May 8, she returned against allowance foes to finish third June 14, but bounced back to take the GIII Victory Ride S. June 29. Given some time off following that effort, Baby J showed speed early but wilted to eighth in her latest trip to the post in the Aug. 24 GI Test S. Click for the brisnet.com chart or VIDEO.
