Weekend Stakes Action: Stephen Foster Edition

Three Grade 1 stakes races will take place on Saturday, along with two Grade 2s, a trio of Grade 3s, and the listed Colonial Turf Cup at Colonial Downs.  The Stephen Foster headlines the card at Churchill Downs, while the Vanity Handicap and the Ogden Phipps highlight cards at Hollywood and Belmont.

The Vanity only drew a field of six, but it's a strong field with Blind Luck, Switch, and St Trinians (GB) all slated to match-up.  Out in New York, Life At Ten will try to get her fading career back on track in the Ogden Phipps against the likes of Unrivaled Belle and Awesome Maria.  Awesome Maria is the 7/5 morning line favorite, with Unrivaled Belle the 2/1 second choice.

At Colonial, Court Vision tried to get back on the winning track in the Colonial Turf Cup, but he'll face tough foes in Smart Bid, Moryba (BRZ) and Guys Reward.
