Grace Hall, third behind Royal Delta and All For Three in the Grade 3 Sabin Stakes at Gulfstream Park in mid-February, returns in Friday's Grade 1 Apple Blossom. Joel Rosario, who took the mount on Grace Hall for the first time in the Sabin, keeps the mount at Oaklawn.

  • Don't Tell Sophia: Winner of the Pippin and Bayakoa at the current Oaklawn meet, and the runner-up in the Azeri.
  • Summer Applause: Winner of the G2-Top Flight on March 2 at the Big A.
  • She's All In: Fourth in the Azeri and second in the Bayakoa; won the G3-Sixty Sails at Hawthorne last April.
  • On Fire Baby: Will make her first start since running fourth in the Acorn at Belmont last May.
  • Bryan's Jewel: Won an allowance race at Oaklawn in mid-March but struggled to a seventh place finishing the last time she faced graded company in the G1-Gazelle in 2011.
