Trained by Vicki Oliver, Mo Stash has made three starts at Keeneland beginning with a runner-up finish in the Indian Summer (L) Presented by Keeneland Select last fall that was followed four weeks later by a fourth-place finish in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1).

Mo Stash will depart post position 5 in the Bryan Station and be ridden by Luis Saez.

Trained by Steve Asmussen, who won the 2007 Bryan Station with Inca King, Gigante cuts back to a mile after he finished sixth in the New Kent County Virginia Derby (G3) going 1 1/8 miles in his most recent start on Sept. 9 at Colonial Downs.
