GII Presque Isle Downs Masters S. Serves As Monday's Feature

Roses for Debra | Sarah Andrew


After a weekend of graded racing action from Aqueduct to Woodbine, the scene shifts on Monday to Presque Isle Downs as they host the Masters S., a Grade II event going six and a half furlongs over the Tapeta.

Out of this field of 12, most of the gravitas will be directed towards Roses for Debra (Liam's Map). With seven wins over nine races, the 4-year-old gray filly won the GIII Caress S. at Saratoga July 22 and then followed that up over the same turf course with a victory in the Smart N Fancy S. Aug. 25. Her ability to rate just off the speed makes her very dangerous and she's a deserving morning-line favorite at 7-5 from the barn of Christophe Clement.

Opposing her though is the last out winner of the GIII Hendrie S. July 22 at Woodbine. From Josie Carroll's shedrow, Loyalty (Hard Spun) looks the part and has a win over this track when she won last year's Lady Erie S. The '23 edition of that black-type race was won by Jill Jitterburg (Cross Traffic), who enters here for Ryan Walsh. Also, not to be overlooked is Accomplished Girl (Street Boss) as she tries stakes company for the second time in her career under Saffie Joseph Jr.
