Fleet Indian has won all six of its races in 2006 and its last two tries in 2005. That record led odds makers to set the early line at 8-5 for the 5-year-old and jockey Jose Santos for the 1 1/8-mile race for fillies and mares 3 years and up.
Pine Island, with Javier Castellano up, got the No. 2 position and odds were set at 5-1. The third favorite for the Distaff is Balletto, with jockey Corey Nakatani, which drew the No. 14 -- and widest -- start position.
The rest of the field for the Distaff, with post position, horse, jockey and odds: 1, Round Pond, Edgar Prado, 15-1; 3, Healthy Addiction, Victor Espinoza, 10-1; 4, Sharp Lisa, Patrick Valenzuela, 50-1; 5, Lemons Forever, Mark Guidry, 30-1; 6, Spun Sugar, Mike Luzzi, 10-1; 8, Baghdaria, Rafael Bejarano, 30-1; 9, Pool Land, John Velazquez, 10-1; 10, Hollywood Story, David Flores, 20-1; 11, Bushfire, Alex Solis; 30-1; 12, Asi Siempre, Julien Leparoux, 15-1; and 13, Happy Ticket, Garrett Gomez, 12-1.
