Phil D'Amato is not deluding himself when it comes to Street Fancy's chances of defeating champion Songbird in Saturday’s Grade II, $300,000 Las Virgenes Stakes, but on the other hand, he's not the meet's leading trainer by accident.

Through 24 racing days, D'Amato held a 14-11 lead over runner-up Doug O'Neill, and had started 19 fewer horses. Making her first start this meet on Saturday will be Street Fancy, a daughter of Street Sense who won the Grade I Starlet at Los Alamitos Dec. 12, closing from seventh in a field of nine to win the mile-and-a-sixteenth race by a length under Mike Smith.
