Leucothea, a romping eight and one-half length winner of the Anoakia Stakes at Santa Anita in mid-October, will be a solid favorite versus five two-year-old filly rivals Sunday in the $75,000 added Desi Arnaz Stakes.
Abel Cedillo has the call from trainer Peter Miller in the six and one-half furlong race on the main track. Opposing Leucothea will be Biddy Duke (Ruben Fuentes), Spitefulness (Tyler Baze), Roadrunner’s Honor (Rafael Bejarano), Orquidias Biz (Mike Smith) and Stellar Sound (Drayden Van Dyke).
Post time for the first of nine races Sunday will be 12:30 p.m.
