A high-quality field of nine fillies and mares will travel 6-furlongs in Saturday’s $100,000 Winning Colors (G3) at Churchill Downs.

Winning Colors Analysis

#2 Break Even is the speed of the speed and will be in front after a few jumps from the gate. #1 Sneaking Out, #6 Take Charge Angel, and the classy #8 Mia Mischief, will be tracking the pacesetter while in close attendance.

Winning Colors Contenders

#1 SNEAKING OUT -- Stakes heroine came off the shelf to be a determined winner in an Oaklawn allowance last time out. Hollendorfer pupil is perfect from a pair of tries at the trip, and improvement the second time back will make her an exotics player under Jose Ortiz.

#2 BREAK EVEN -- Fleet Country Day filly won with ease at Oaklawn in her latest venture and is the one to catch on Saturday. Brad Cox charge is a superb 7-for-9 lifetime, and she aired in her lone local appearance. Joel Rosario stays in the silks.

#3 PRINCESS CAUSEWAY -- Wilkes trainee was impressive in a last-to-first allowance triumph at Gulfstream Park in preparation of this assignment. Kentucky-bred is a winner on the surface, and she has longshot appeal for the gimmicks with a forward move beneath Landeros.

#4 BELL’S THE ONE -- One-run closer is unplaced in her last pair following a triumph in the Raven Run (G2) at Keeneland in the fall. Pessin pupil has run well beneath the Twin Spires in the past and is training well as of late. Corey Lanerie will be up.

#5 UNIQUE FACTOR -- Longshot makes her first showing since arriving in the barn of Peter Miller. The Factor filly takes a big class hike today following a nice allowance effort most recently, but she would be a surprise in this deep affair, nonetheless.

#6 TAKE CHARGE ANGEL -- Capable daughter of Will Take Charge has failed to hit the board in her three career stakes attempts to date. Dark bay lass has early foot, but she faces a tall task in a field with such quality under Leparoux.

#7 SPICED PERFECTION -- Multiple Grade 1 victress makes her second run in 2020, and her first since transferring to Mark Casse. Smiling Tiger mare is 3-for-3 at 6-panels, and I expect her to get a great stalking trip while always in range on Saturday. Javier Castellano retains the mount.

#8 MIA MISCHIEF -- Standout Into Mischief mare dons a sharp 8-5-2-0 mark at Churchill Downs and brings great form to the field as the one to beat. Asmussen trainee has been sterling from a pair of assignments this season and could peak in her third try off the bench. Bay is a must use with regular pilot Santana in the stirrups.

#9 LADY SUEBEE -- Outsider was a distant third in the Carousel S. in her latest outing for Sadler. Speedy sort shows just one tally since 2018, and she is hard to back with confidence against this cast.
