With 'TDN Rising Star' Nash (Medaglia d'Oro) bypassing the GIII Matt Winn S. at Churchill Downs for the GI Woody Stephens S. at Saratoga, the new headliner for Sunday's race under the Twin Spires is Who Dey (Liam's Map).

Installed as a 5-2 shot on the morning-line in the Matt Winn, trainer Tom Drury opted to scratch his colt from Friday's Best of Ohio Green Carpet S. at Belterra Park for a chance to return to Churchill. The 3-year-old was last seen finishing fourth behind GI Preakness S. hero Seize the Grey (Arrogate) in the GII Pat Day Mile on the Derby undercard.

The Ohio homebred will have to tangle with a pair of alums from the GI Kentucky Derby in West Saratoga (Exaggerator) and Society Man (Good Magic), who finished 12th and 16th, respectively, in the Run for the Roses.

Also entered is Mighty Message (Goldencents), who is owned by Highlander Training Center and conditioned by Tom Amoss. The chestnut exits an optional claimer in which he won by a neck at Oaklawn Park Apr. 20.

Headed to the post is the lightly-raced Rocketeer (Curlin) for trainer Brad Cox. The bay won on debut at Keeneland last fall, but missed in the slop against optional claimers over the same surface when he returned Apr. 10.

California-based John Sadler sends Scatify (Justify) back to Kentucky after the 3-year-old was the runner-up while sprinting over the grass at Santa Anita May 4, and fellow Golden State trainer Doug O'Neill will ask Calumet homebred Luna Tap (Ransom the Moon) to build on his debut maiden-breaking score from Horseshoe Indianapolis May 9.
