6th-CD, $120K, Msw, 3yo/up, f/m, 7f, 3:18 p.m. ET.
PRIDES CROSSING (Quality Road) was the seventh highest priced yearling when the filly went to OXO Equine for $1.3-million during the 2022 Keeneland September Sale. The Paulo Lobo trainee is out of Irish SW Key To My Heart (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), who Summer Wind Equine acquired for $1.75-million at the 2018 Keeneland November Sale while Man Among Men (War Front) was in-utero. Hailing from a well-related family, the first time starter's second dam is GISW A Z Warrior (Bernardini).

Also on debut is Steve Asmussen-trained Penny Royal (Curlin). The 3-year-old Stonestreet homebred is out of MSW Glinda the Good (Hard Spun), who is responsible for her full-brother, champion 2-year-old colt Good Magic. TJCIS PPS

Set for her unveiling in the finale is Godolphin homebred Queen of Paris (Tapit), whose dam is MGISW Wedding Toast (Street Sense). Trained by Brad Cox, the filly is from an extended female family which includes dual GI Cigar Mile H. champ Congaree (Azari).

A pair of 3-year-old fillies owned by Tommy Town Thoroughbreds make the races for the first time. With Horse of the year Tiznow (Cee's Tizzy) under her third dam, Shezalittlestinker (Gun Runner) was a $400,000 Keeneland September buy and is out of J. Quirk (Unbridled's Song), who was purchased by Breeze Easy for $725,000 at the 2021 Keeneland November Sale while Upscuttled (Game Winner) was in-utero. She'll go to post for Wayne Catalano.

The other half of this uncoupled entry is Come as You Are (City of Light). Trained by Bill Mott, the filly went for $500,000 at the Keeneland September Sale and her dam is a half-sister to GI Alabama S. heroine Dunbar Road (Quality Road). TJCIS PPS
