Daily Racing Form Saturday Stakes Preview - - FRONT PAGE -

The Penn­syl­va­nia Derby and Cotil­lion Stakes, a pair of $1 mil­lion races that will be run Satur­day at Parx Rac­ing, each drew large, com­pet­i­tive fields when en­tries were taken Mon­day.

There are three other stakes on the Satur­day card: the Grade 3, $300,000 Gallant Bob, a six­fur­long sprint for 3-year-olds; the $150,000 Bay­ern – named for last year’s Penn­syl­va­nia Derby win­ner – for 3-year-olds and up at 1 1/16 miles; and the $100,000 Al­pha­bet Soup for Penn­syl­va­nia-breds at 1 1/16 miles on turf.

The Grade 2 Penn­syl­va­nia Derby, at 1 1/8 miles, has a field of 10, topped by Frosted and Up­start, the third- and fourth­place fin­ish­ers Aug. 29 in the Travers Stakes; Gimme Da Lute, who has won four stakes in a row for Bob Baf­fert; and the im­prov­ing Made­from­lucky, the win­ner of the West Vir­ginia


Up­start, fin­ish­ing fourth in the Travers Stakes last out, is the 9-2 third choice in the Pa. Derby.
