A three-person selection committee was established to choose the filly and colt who represented the best chance to win this race at the time of selection. Dave Briggs (HRU), Derick Giwner (DRF) and Bob Heyden made up the three-person selection committee. The top five performing fillies and colts that the final selection was made from were:
Fillies: American Beauty, Baptism, Gabbys C Note, Mon Cheval, Selfie Queen
