Significant Form | Joe Labozzetta

Three fillies from the Chad Brown barn appear to hold most of the cards in Thursday's seven-furlong GIII Intercontinental S. at Belmont. Favored on the morning line is Stephanie Seymour Brant's Significant Form (Creative Cause). A dominant winner of the Memories of Silver S. last spring at Aqueduct in her 3-year-old debut, the $575,000 OBS April buy finished off the board in her next three, and was last seen running fourth in the off-the-turf Winter Memories S. Nov. 22 at the Big A. Stella di Camelot (Ire) (Camelot {Ire}) also makes her first start as a 4-year-old here. Third in the G3 Premio Regina Elena last spring in Italy, the bay had an auspicious North American debut when rallying to a clear score in the Pebbles S. Oct. 13 at Belmont, but could not build on that when fifth at 1-2 in the GII Mrs. Revere S. Nov. 23 at Churchill. Martin Schwartz's Zonza (Fr) (Alex the Winner), a French Group 3 winner, was fourth in a Keeneland allowance in her Stateside bow Apr. 19.
