This race will feature a pair of hard-hitting GI winning  sprinters in Big Macher and Secret Circle , both at 5/2 and as the slight 2/1 m/l fav, Distinctiv Passion , is the last out winner of the GIII Midnight Lute Stakes here on Dec. 27th covering the first 6f’s of that 6 1/2 f sprint in a very swift 1:07.3!

Wild Dude, at 4/1, is the defending champ here as Conquest Two Step, also at 4/1, was a last out 2nd by just a neck to Shared Belief in the 7f GI Malibu Stakes here last month!

Rounding out this field of 6 is Chief Lion, at 15/1, is breaking out of the Aoc ranks to test his sprinting skills at the graded level for the first time here on Saturday!

So, lots and lots of early speed here in a fairly evenly matched field that could have gone as a GI race any other time of the year!
