Nominees include Daddysruby for Peter Miller and Big Pond for Tim Yakteen. In their most recent starts, Daddysruby edged Big Pond by a nose in the GI La Brea going seven furlongs here Dec. 26.

The Presidents’ Day feature is the Tiznow Stakes for older statebreds at a mile on dirt. Looming a standout in the Tiznow is star Cal-bred The Chosen Vron for trainer Eric Kruljac. The Chosen Vron, whose career record is 15-for-20 with $1,239,678 in earnings.
