Prioress Stakes Odds & Preview

Another brilliant racing weekend lies in wait at Saratoga. One of the best races on Saturday’s card is the Grade 2 Prioress Stakes. 

Breeders Cup Odds

A race exclusively for three year old fillies, five talented horses are due to head down to post. In what looks a tight betting contest, Dazzling Blue looks likely to start the race as the favorite. 

A winner of her first three career starts, she was narrowly beaten in the 2023 Victory Ride Stakes last time out and will hope to go one place better here.

Prioress Stakes

Grade 2, 6 furlongs, dirt, open to three year old fillies. Total prize pool: $250,000

An intriguing race awaits in this year’s renewal of the Prioress Stakes. 

Brad Cox has had another brilliant season and will hope to win another graded prize with Dazzling Blue

An exciting filly, she got her career off to a perfect start with three consecutive wins. With big things expected in the 2023 Victory Ride Stakes, she ran with credit to finish second to the hugely impressive Maple Leaf Mel. 

Despite tasting defeat, that form looks solid and she rightly starts as the horse they will all need to beat. 

One horse who will be confident of getting her head in front will be Alva Starr.

Trained out of the Brett Brinkmanship barn, she has won two of her four career starts, but was particularly impressive when a decisive winner of the 2023 Dashing Beauty Stakes. 

A devastating front runner, she won the Dashing Beauty by six lengths and could prove tricky to pass. 

Jersey Pearl can’t be discounted and is likely to start the race in the top three of the betting. A winner of three of her seven career starts, she beat Alva Starr when the two met earlier on in the season. 

Highly tried since, she finished fourth when last seen in the 2023 Test Stakes. That was a Grade 1 race and she finished well ahead of Maple Leaf Mel who beat Dazzling Blue earlier in the season. 

Back in calmer waters here, she could be a major threat and represents the clear value angle of the contest. 

Manny Franco has a brilliant Saratoga record and he will hope to steer Unsung Melody to her first graded success.

A winner of just two of her first six starts, her connections will be hoping for an improved showing from when she finished third of four in the 2023 Wilton Stakes. That contest was run just under a mile and the drop back to 6 furlongs should aid her cause. 

Rounding out the field is Unified Alliance. Likely to start as the outsider for the race, this will be her second start for Thomas Morley and she will be hoping to win her second consecutive race with her new trainer. 

A good winner of the 2023 Coronation Cup, she certainly isn’t without a hope and if you look to back horses at bigger prices she could be a really viable option.

A fascinating contest awaits in this year’s Prioress Stakes. With form lines between several of the runners, it could be worth siding with Jersey Pearl. She has beaten Alva Starr and finished ahead of the horse who beat Dazzling Blue last time out. Likely to start at a decent price, she looks a solid shout.
