Brad Cox and his all-star line up will fill 44 stalls at Fair Grounds in New Orleans, including four Breeders' Cup winners. The barn will include ESSENTIAL QUALITY, MONOMOY GIRL, KNICKS GO, AUNT PEARL.

ESSENTIAL QUALITY, a TAPIT son, is a candidate for the March 20th Louisiana Derby (G2). Cox won the race last year with WELLS BAYOU. MONOMOY GIRL's main goal will be the Breeders' Cup at Del Mar in the fall, but will join the stable in New Orleans. KNICKS GO will be pointed at the Pegasus World Cup in Gulfstream, but will be stabled at Fair Grounds.

Cox will kick off the meet with runners in the last 5 races of the Opening Day Card. LANDESKOG is 4-1 on the morning line for the $125,000 Thanksgiving Classic.

Cox won the trainer title at Fair Grounds last year with 40 wins and 12 stakes wins.
