The field is set for the $100,000 Arlington Matron Stakes from Arlington Park. The Grade 3 event will be contested at a mile and an eighth on the synthetic main track and has drawn a field of eleven fillies and mares.
No Fault of Mine has been tabbed as the morning line favorite in the contentious field at odds of 5-2 for trainer Chris Block. A homebred for Lothenbach Stables, the four-year-old daughter of Blame has been on the board in seven of her eight starts and is trying to earn her fifth victory. She is stepping back up to graded stakes competition and was last seen winning an allowance race at Keeneland in April. Carlos Marquez, Jr. will be aboard from post position six.
Brooklynsway trying to return to winning form
Second choice at morning line odds of 3-1 is Brooklynsway for trainer Bernard Flint. A four-year-old daughter of Giant Gizmo, she has won five of her sixteen starts and was a graded stakes winner at Keeneland earlier in the year. She has been effective on conventional dirt and synthetics and will be trying to rebound after a fifth-place finish in the La Troienne Stakes (G1). E.T. Baird will be in the irons and they will break from post position three.
Flipcup back off of six month layoff
Also in the field at morning line odds of 8-1 is Flipcup for trainer Bill Mott. A five-year-old daughter of Milwaukee Brew, she has been on the board in fifteen of her eighteen outings and is a six-time winner. She has been on the shelf since finishing fifth in a minor stakes race at Woodbine in December and has had a steady recent worktab in preparation for her return. Christopher Emigh will be aboard and they are scheduled to break from the rail.
