Today's featured turf mile for fillies and marest going a mile on the turf looks more like a stakes masquerading as a optional/NW 3 allowances and it marks the return of several high profile returnees. Two are from the Pletcher barn and, of those, we prefer Peace Preserver.

Making her 4-year-old debut here off a strong workline which includes a sharp half-mile breeze on Mar. 16, she returns with Johnny, is nicely drawn and is at her best at this trip, as her (4) 3-1-0 slate will attest. Eliminated on the first turn of her G2 Mrs. Revere 3YO finale after destroying Channel Lady (a double winner at this meet) and five others in the restricted Pebbles.

Expecting her to get off a a fast start this season, taking the War Front filly to win, no price restrictions, and keying her first and second in multiple with Baffle Me, scratched from a recent stakes in favor of this, classy stablemate Dancing Solo, and Warm Hugs, who's worked thrice since her too-late finish behind Pianist Feb. 7 and is scheduled to pick up Mike Smith.
