On Saturday at Aqueduct, New York-bred fillies and mares will take center stage in the 8th running of the $125,000 New York Stallion Series. The seven-furlong contest has drawn a field of ten.

Sunny Desert has been named the morning line favorite at odds of 3-1 for trainer Bruce Levine. Though winless from four starts this year after returning off of an extended layoff, she is an eight time winner and won the 2012 edition of the New York Stallion Series. She is trying to rebound after finishing eighth after a troubled trip in the Empire Distaff Handicap in October. John Velazquez will be aboard from post six.

Vicki's Dancer going for NY Stallion Series repeat

Second choice at 7-2 is the defending winner of the 2013 running of the New York Stallion Series, Vicki’s Dancer. Trained by Rudy Rodriguez, the five-year-old daughter of Disco Rico is attempting to earn her first win of the year and sixth of her career. After finishing third last time out, she will get an equipment change and wear blinkers for the first time. Irad Ortiz, Jr. has picked up the mount and they will break from post four.

Saythreehailmary's trying for first stakes win

Also in the field at morning line odds of 6-1 is Saythreehailmary’s for trainer John Morrison. Bred and owned by Very Un Stable, the sophomore daughter of Repent  has been on the board in five of her seven career starts, all of which have come this year. She was last seen winning an allowance race against state-bred company and is going for her first stakes win. Dylan Davis, aboard last time out, has retained the mount from post eight.
