On Sunday at Belmont Park, the featured race is the $200,000 Matron Stakes. A Grade 2 event for juvenile fillies, the six-furlong contest has drawn a field of six.

Pretty N Cool has been tabbed as the morning line favorite at odds of 7-5 for trainer Bob Baffert. A gray daughter of Scat Daddy, she was purchased for $160,000 as a yearling and has won two of her three starts. After breaking her maiden in her debut, she wheeled back to win the Sorrento Stakes (G2) in her stakes debut. Last time out, she was second behind the promising Songbird in the Del Mar Debutante (G1). Martin Garcia will be aboard and they will break from post position five.

Constellation seeking first stakes victory

Second choice at morning line odds of 3-1 is Constellation for trainer Steve Asmussen. A chestnut daughter of Bellamy Road, she fetched $800,000 in March and broke her maiden at first asking at Saratoga in August. She made her stakes debut in the Spinaway Stakes (G1) and finished third. She has been training steadily since that race and will break from post position three under jockey Irad Ortiz, Jr.

Cut back in distance for Tonasah

Also in the field at morning line odds of 4-1 is Tonasah, one of two fillies in the race for trainer Todd Pletcher. A bay daughter of Malibu Moon, she was purchased for $250,000 by StarLadies Racing. She broke her maiden in her first start and was second in the Adirondack Stakes (G2) in her next outing. She is trying to rebound after finishing fifth in the Spinaway Stakes (G1) and will have Javier Castellano aboard from post two.
