Undefeated Tobys Heart (Jack Milton) returns to the races Saturday after six months on the sidelines in Gulfstream's GIII Herecomesthebride S. Tabbed a 'TDN Rising Star' off a 6 3/4-length romp in her Churchill unveiling June 4, the dark bay rallied to victory in the Bolton Landing S. going 5 1/2 panels at Saratoga Aug. 19. The $45,000 OBSMAR buy navigates two turns for the first time in this return from the bench.

Spanish Loveaffair (Karakontie {Jpn}) opened her account last season with a pair of victories going a mile over this course, in her July 23 debut and the Sharp Susan S. Aug. 29. Second behind undefeated 'Rising Star' Aunt Pearl (Ire) (Lope de Vega {Ire}) in Keeneland's GII Jessamine S. Oct. 7, the bay finished sixth behind that rival in the GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf S. in Lexington Nov. 6.

Con Lima (Commissioner) has never been worse than second in her career and has made six of her seven starts at this venue. Wiring a one-mile optional claimer here by 5 1/4 lengths Dec. 12, the dark bay scored another decisive victory in the Ginger Brew S. Jan. 2. Setting the early pace last time in the GIII Sweetest Chant S. Jan. 30, she was overtaken late and forced to settle for second.
