Racing Headlines

Homecoming Classic renamed in honor of Lukas

Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas, a four-time winner of both the Kentucky Derby (G1) and Kentucky Oaks (G1), will be honored by Churchill Downs with the naming of a stakes race to be run during its upcoming September Meet that will feature eight stakes events with total purses of $1.025 million.

The $175,000 Lukas Classic, for three-year-olds and up at 1 1/8 miles, was known as the Homecoming Classic during the first two years of September racing at Churchill Downs. The Lukas Classic, introduced in 2013 and designed to be an autumn prep for the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic (G1), shares the September Meet stakes spotlight with events for juveniles that that respectively launch the 2016 Road to the Kentucky Derby and Road to the Kentucky Oaks: the $150,000 Iroquois (G3) for two-year-olds and the $200,000 Pocahontas (G2) for two-year-old fillies. Both races will be run at 1 1/16 miles on the main track and each is included on the Breeders' Cup "Win & You're In" Challenge Series schedule. Their respective winners will be guaranteed automatic starting spots in Breeders' Cup events on October 31 at Keeneland.

The 11-date September Meet operates on a four-day, Thursday-through-Sunday weekly racing schedule with the exception of its first week. Opening day is September 11 and the meet will conclude on September 27. Regular post time for the meet will be 12:45 p.m. (EDT), with exceptions being 5 p.m. "Twilight Thursday" racing on September 17 and 24 and the meet's lone "Downs After Dark" night racing celebration on September 19 with a post time of 6 p.m.

The former Homecoming Classic is being renamed to salute Lukas' accomplishments, contributions and influence on Churchill Downs, the Kentucky Derby and Oaks, and the horse industry. The native of Antigo, Wisconsin, will celebrate his 80th birthday on September 2. The race that now carries his name will be run for the third time on September 26. Reigning Breeders' Cup Classic winner Fort Larned won its first running in 2013 and subsequently finished fourth at Santa Anita in his bid for a repeat Classic victory. The race was won last year by Cigar Street, who would finish seventh in the Classic at Santa Anita.

Lukas, who bases his stable at Churchill Downs Barn 44 through much of the year, has won a record 14 victories in Triple Crown races, and trained a record 20 winners of Breeders' Cup races. He earned four Eclipse Awards that honored him as the nation's top trainer. At Churchill Downs, Lukas ranks second in career stakes victories (73) and fourth in total wins (510).

"Along with the enormity of the numbers of his total victories, the stakes races he has won and earnings by his stable's horses throughout his Hall of Fame career, D. Wayne Lukas forever changed both the Kentucky Derby and North America's horse industry," said Kevin Flanery, president of Churchill Downs. "It is Churchill Downs' honor to salute Wayne Lukas by placing his name on this race. We are enthusiastic about the potential of the Lukas Classic and believe it will very soon be an important annual stop for older horses who are working to prepare for and earn starting spots in the Breeders' Cup Classic.

"We think the presence of Wayne Lukas' name on this race will enhance its attractiveness and its status. And we would love to see Mr. Lukas do one of the few things he has yet to do during his legendary career. Our team at Churchill Downs is confident that Wayne is a long way from entertaining any thoughts of retirement, and we hope that he will soon saddle a winner of this race, which would allow him -- for the first time -- to present a winner's trophy to himself."

The first races on the Road to the Kentucky Derby and Road to the Kentucky Oaks headline four stakes events on September 12, the first of three Saturdays of racing during the September Meet. Along with the Pocahontas and Iroquois, that program will feature the $100,000 Locust Grove, for fillies and mares on the main track, and the $100,000 Open Mind, which matches fillies and mares at six furlongs.

Along with the opportunity to collect the first points in the systems that will determine the starters in the 2016 Kentucky Derby and the Kentucky Oaks, the Iroquois and Pocahontas provide their winners with a guaranteed starting spot in Breeders' Cup races in their divisions.

The racing program on September 19 features the $100,000 Dogwood (G3) for three-year-old fillies at seven furlongs.

The final Saturday of September Meet racing on September 26 will offer three stakes events in the Lukas Classic, the $100,000 Ack Ack H. (G3) for three-year-olds and up at one mile, and the $100,000 Jefferson Cup (G3) for three-year-olds at one mile on the turf -- the only stakes race on grass during the meet.

Only two of the eight stakes races in September have changed from last year's schedule. Along with the new name for the Lukas Classic, the purse for the race was boosted by $50,000 to $175,000. The purse for the Iroquois also was increased by $50,000.

After the September racing session, Churchill Downs will have one remaining race meet in 2015. The track's traditional Fall Meet is scheduled for November 1-29, which will offer 21 racing dates on a weekly Thursday-through-Sunday schedule.

Shaman Ghost carries winning form into Queen's Plate; Attfield keen on Danish Dynaformer

Shaman Ghost defeated several Queen's Plate contestants in the Marine Stakes (WEG/Michael Burns Photography)

His first three races didn't produce the desired results, but Shaman Ghost (Ghostzapper) will enter Sunday's Queen's Plate off a trio of victories. The Stronach Stables homebred hasn't been favored in any of those wins, breaking his maiden at 12-1 odds three starts back at Gulfstream Park and recording a 13-1 upset in the May 16 Marine (G3) most recently at Woodbine.

"Winning form is the best form and he's won three in a row," trainer Brian Lynch said. "He's been doing everything well in those last three, really fighting to the wire in all of them. I like the way he doesn't give up. He just keeps on battling. Hopefully, he brings that same great fight with him to the Plate."

The bay colt battled down the lane to capture the Marine by a half-length and will retain the services of jockey Rafael Hernandez in Sunday's "Gallop for the Guineas."

"We were a little wide into the first turn as we were carried out a little bit," Hernandez said of the Marine. "I wanted to make one run and turning for home I tried to go between horses, but I had no room. It took me a little bit of kick, but this is a good horse. I took him out in the clear and he was gone."

Lynch, seeking his first Plate triumph, had unwavering faith his charge would turn things around.  

"You could just see with every work, with every day that went by, he was figuring it all out," Lynch noted. "Sometimes, it's just a question of time for particular horses. I've always liked him and I always thought he'd turn out to be a good one."

Danish Dynaformer has captured three of his last four starts (WEG/Michael Burns Photography)

Fifteen Ontario-bred three-year-olds are being pointed toward the 1 1/4-mile event on Woodbine's Polytrack. Eight-time Queen's Plate winner Roger Attfield, a member of both the Canadian and U.S. Racing Hall of Fame, will send out a pair of runners in pursuit of record ninth victory, Plate Trial champ Danish Dynaformer (Dynaformer) and improving maiden winner Billy's Star (Perfect Soul).

Danish Dynaformer, a three-time winner from six starts, will be partnered by Patrick Husbands in the Plate as Luis Contreras, aboard for the Plate Trial score, is committed to Ami's Flatter (Flatter). The bay colt breezed five furlongs in 1:00 2/5 on Saturday in tandem with Billy's Star, who will be piloted by Eurico Rosa da Silva.

The 75-year-old Attfield, a native of Newbury, England, has added new technology to his old-school horsemanship skills for this year's Plate as both his contenders wore an E-Trakka equine fitness monitoring device for their recent breeze.

"They both wore it all winter," Attfield explained. "I've got all their works recorded and I can track their progress coming back off layoffs. The readout provides you with heart rate, recovery rate and length of stride. A very fit horse recovers very quickly (to a standing heart rate.) It also works as a GPS, so we get a very accurate time. Though I'm pretty good at that anyway as I'm always out there on my pony and within a fifth of a second (on timing workouts)."

Both trainer and technology agreed on the success of the duo's final Plate prep.

"With both of these horses, the E-Trakka results were really excellent. They're in great shape and I just need to keep them happy and healthy for the rest of the week," Attfield said.

Danish Dynaformer won the Plate Trial comfortably by nearly a length, but stablemate Billy's Star endured a troubled trip and wound up sixth after swerving to avoid the ill-fated Danzig Moon, who fell down the back straight.

"I can't believe he (Billy's Star) wasn't a bit body sore after his last race, he got cranked hard to avoid the fallen horse," Attfield said. "Eurico actually used him right after the incident quite a bit to get back in the race and that was probably his run there, but he still made a bit of a run in the lane. He's had other races with trouble and then major trouble in the Trial, but he's training really well and it wouldn't surprise me if he ran a big race in the Plate."

Danish Dynaformer continues to impress Attfield.

"He's a really nice horse, no question about it," Attfield said. "He's got a big turn of foot and a huge cruising speed. He cruises in the morning with 14 1/2s and 15s (eighths of a mile) consistently and you'd still be able to sit down and work him a half-mile if you wanted to. He's a very versatile horse."

Tucci Stables and trainer Nick Gonzalez teamed up to win the 2013 Queen's Plate with the front-running Midnight Aria, a 17-hands tall son of Midnight Lute. The band is back together for the 2015 Plate with Easy Indygo (Marchfield), a much smaller individual blessed with a versatile running style.

"We always kind of liked him," said Martha Gonzalez, wife and assistant to the trainer. "The distance won't be a factor as he's always ran on very well. It's a last minute decision, but the horse is doing well, so why not. Two turns is what he really wants. He's pretty versatile. He can be on the front end or he can sit back too. He's got both angles covered.  He's a handy little horse."

A maiden winner in his juvenile finale, Easy Indygo has dropped all three starts this season, but does exit a pair of placings versus allowance rivals in his last two outings, including a neck third last time out on June 6. Emma-Jayne Wilson will take over from Justin Stein, who sticks with Oaks winner Academic (Henny Hughes).

"I think Emma will suit the horse," Gonzalez said. "He's one of those horses that will do what you ask him to do. Emma's a pretty aggressive rider and in that final eighth of a mile you need someone who is a very strong finisher."

Keeneland announces Fall Meet, Breeders' Cup undercard stakes

A total of six stakes will be contested on the two Breeders' Cup undercards at Keeneland

Keeneland will be the focus of the racing world in October when the track presents 23 stakes worth a total of $5,975,000 in purse money during its 2015 Fall Meet, to be held October 2-24, and the special three-day celebration, October 29-31, surrounding the $26 million Breeders' Cup World Championships.

Sixteen stakes, including six Grade 1 events highlighted by the $1 million Shadwell Turf Mile (G1), worth $5,075,000 are slated for the 17-day Fall Meet, which opens with the prestigious Fall Stars Weekend, October 2-4. Eight Fall Meet stakes are "Win and You're In" events, part of the Breeders' Cup Challenge series of automatic qualifying races for the Breeders' Cup.

As the host site for the 2015 Breeders' Cup, Keeneland has carded an additional seven stakes worth $900,000 -- one to be held October 29 and three scheduled for each of the Breeders' Cup undercards on October 30-31. The stakes are a mix of new and familiar names: $100,000 Lafayette for three-year-olds and up at seven furlongs on Thursday; the $200,000 Fayette (G2) for three-year-olds and up at 1 1/8 miles, which moves in 2015 from its traditional Fall Meet closing day spot to Friday and is joined by the $200,000 Marathon (G2) for three-year-olds and up at 1 3/4 miles and the $100,000 Bryan Station for three-year-olds at 1 1/8 miles on the turf; and on Saturday the $100,000 Fort Springs for three-year-old fillies, $100,000 Juvenile Dirt Sprint for two-year-olds, and $100,000 Perryville for three-year-olds, each at six furlongs.

"This fall will be one of the most memorable racing seasons in Keeneland history," said Keeneland Vice President of Racing W.B. Rogers Beasley. "The competition will be superb; the top trainers and jockeys will be on hand as the anticipation builds all month toward the first-ever Breeders' Cup at Keeneland. It will be an exciting time for fans, horsemen and the entire Central Kentucky community."

Keeneland's signature Fall Stars Weekend offers an exciting kick-off to the Fall Meet, when nine graded stakes worth $3.7 million. Five of those races are Grade 1 events. Opening day features the $400,000 Alcibiades (G1) for two-year-old fillies at 1 1/16 miles. The October 3 card includes the Shadwell Turf Mile for three-year-olds and up; $500,000 Breeders' Futurity for two-year-olds at 1 1/16 miles; and $400,000 First Lady (G1), for fillies and mares at a mile on turf. Racing on October 4 is led by the $500,000 Spinster (G1) for fillies and mares at 1 1/8 miles.

A sixth Grade 1 stakes, the $500,000 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup (G1), an internationally renowned invitational for three-year-old fillies at 1 1/8 miles on the turf, will be held October 10.

The Fall Meet also reflects two changes to the stakes program. Purses for the Phoenix (G3) on October 2 and Thoroughbred Club of America (G2) on October 3 have increased from $200,000 to $250,000 each. Additionally, the $150,000 Valley View (G3), a 1 1/16-mile race on turf for three-year-old fillies, has been moved to closing day, October 24, for Fall Meet 2015.

NBC will broadcast live from Keeneland with two "Breeders' Cup Challenge Win and You're In Series" programs on October 3 (5-6 p.m. EDT) featuring the Breeders' Futurity and Shadwell Turf Mile and on October 4 (5-6 p.m.) with the Spinster and the Bourbon (G3), a turf race for two-year-olds.

The eighth Breeders' Cup Challenge race is the October 7 Jessamine (G3), which awards the winner a berth in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1).

TicketResell available for Breeders' Cup

The Breeders' Cup Monday announced the return of TicketResell by SeatAdvisor, a ticketing feature that provides ticketholders more flexibility and security when selling and purchasing tickets for the Breeders' Cup World Championships. TicketResell is an online tool that allows patrons to resell tickets they can no longer use back to the Breeders' Cup primary ticket inventory. The Breeders' Cup, Thoroughbred racing's premier international event, will be held at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington on Friday, October 30 and Saturday, October 31.

This is the third consecutive year that the TicketResell program has been made available to Breeders' Cup patrons. With TicketResell, if patrons are no longer able to attend the event, they are now able to resell event tickets directly through their online account held with the Breeders' Cup. A desired resell price is set by the seller, and tickets are then added to the accessible inventory and made available for buyers.

All transactions are 100 percent secured and guaranteed by Breeders' Cup, unlike other secondary market resellers. Upon being sold, patrons are able to recoup the original cost of the tickets minus a minimal servicing fee.

"We understand that even after purchasing tickets some of our guests may not be able to attend, and other patrons may wish to purchase tickets for a section that is currently sold out," said Breeders' Cup President and CEO Craig Fravel. "TicketResell provides fans with a reasonable market for tickets in a secure location, which removes the risk of counterfeiting."

"TicketResell was engineered to equip our clients with the ability to securely assist patrons that can no longer use their tickets to an event," said Brent Miller, CEO of SeatAdvisor, Inc. "We are thrilled by the success Breeders' Cup has demonstrated using the feature over the past several years, as it reflects our mission to aide venues of all kinds in providing superior customer service to ticket buyers."

In addition to being more convenient and safe for patrons, the TicketResell technology helps the Breeders' Cup better manage ticket inventory. The event will also be more accessible as tickets that may go unused can be resold.

Fans interested selling their Breeders' Cup tickets or purchasing resold inventory through TicketResell may call 859-514-9428, M-F, 9-5 p.m. (EDT); email bctickets@breederscup.com or on the web at www.breederscup.com/tickets

TicketResell available for Breeders' Cup

The Breeders' Cup Monday announced the return of TicketResell by SeatAdvisor, a ticketing feature that provides ticketholders more flexibility and security when selling and purchasing tickets for the Breeders' Cup World Championships. TicketResell is an online tool that allows patrons to resell tickets they can no longer use back to the Breeders' Cup primary ticket inventory. The Breeders' Cup, Thoroughbred racing's premier international event, will be held at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington on Friday, October 30 and Saturday, October 31.

TicketResell was developed by SeatAdvisor, Inc., a global ticketing software company and the official box office software provider of the Breeders' Cup World Championships since 2008. This is the third consecutive year that the TicketResell program has been made available to Breeders' Cup patrons. With TicketResell, if patrons are no longer able to attend the event, they are now able to resell event tickets directly through their online account held with the Breeders' Cup.

Santa Anita sees attendance, handle rise

Santa Anita's 39-day Spring Meeting, which began on April 24, ended on Sunday with the track showing gains in both on-track attendance and overall pari-mutuel handle. Combined with its 68-day Winter Meet that ran from December 26 through April 19, on-track attendance was up 7 percent, overall mutuel handle was up 3 percent and total handle exceeded $1 billion for the second year in a row.

"First off, we want to sincerely thank our fans, owners, horsemen and our jockeys for a very successful meet," said Santa Anita Chairman Keith Brackpool. "We're very proud of the fact our turf course and main track again performed extremely well, which enabled us to consistently field a world- class product.

"We also want to thank Bob Baffert and his team for sharing America's newest Triple Crown winner, American Pharoah (Pioneerof the Nile), so graciously with our fans and media ever since his arrival back here on June 18. We had a tremendous crowd here on Gold Cup Day of more than 21,000 people and many of them were here to see American Pharoah. Having a horse of this magnitude based here at Santa Anita is a great honor and we can't thank Bob enough for his generosity."

Santa Anita will re-open for live racing on September 26.

New Bay ruled out of Eclipse; Karpino misses Deutsches Derby

A clash of Derby winners Golden Horn (Cape Cross) and New Bay (Dubawi) in Saturday's Eclipse (Eng-G1) will not materialize after New Bay, the Prix du Jockey Club (French Derby) (Fr-G1) winner, failed to satisfy trainer Andre Fabre in a work Monday.

"Andre Fabre has reported that New Bay did not work well enough this morning to justify going to Sandown for the Eclipse S.," said owner-breeder Khalid Abdullah's Racing Manager Teddy Grimthorpe. "He will now wait and look at the various other options."

New Bay's defection has left five in the Eclipse, with Golden Horn being the only three-year-old, and trainer John Gosden said the Anthony Oppenheimer colorbearer worked well on the weekend.

"Frankie (Dettori) was thrilled with his work on Saturday morning," the conditioner told At The Races. "He did a lovely seven furlongs on the watered gallop with a good older horse rated 118 and he skipped clear of him. He's in good order and at the moment, touch wood, he's going the right way."

The four others remaining in the Eclipse are Golden Horn's stablemate Western Hymn (High Chaparral); dual Group 1 winner The Grey Gatsby (Mastercraftsman); the Aidan O'Brien-trained Cougar Mountain (Fastnet Rock); and Andrew Balding's Tullius (Le Vie Dei Colori).

In another disappointing bulletin, Qatar Racing's unbeaten Mehl-Mulhens-Rennen (German Two Thousand Guineas) (Ger-G2) winner Karpino (Cape Cross) has been ruled out of Sunday's Deutsches Derby (Ger-G1) after sustaining an injury Monday.

Trainer Andreas Wohler said he thinks the injury is not serious, but was unable to give a timeline for the colt's return to the races. Karpino is also entered in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth S. (Eng-G1) at Ascot July 25.

"We've taken him out of the German Derby," Wohler confirmed. "He had an injury this morning. It's nothing serious, hopefully, and we'll see. We'll just have to see how everything works. It's hard to say if he will make Ascot. We'll have to see how the next couple of days are."

In brief

American Pharoah looked good in his first work since the Belmont (Cecilia Gustavsson/Horsephotos.com)
American Pharoah (Pioneerof the Nile) worked three furlongs in :36 2/5 at Santa Anita Monday, recording his first move since sweeping the elusive Triple Crown in the June 6 Belmont S. (G1). Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert has yet to announce the next start for the Zayat Stables homebred, who is likely to conclude his racing career in the October 31 Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) at Keeneland...

Presque Isle Downs canceled its entire live racing card Monday due to ongoing safety concerns with the local deer population's infiltrating the racetrack. This marks the third time in the past week that the Erie, Pennsylvania, course has lost races because of the deer situation. Last Monday, racing was canceled after the 3RD race, and the program was called off after the 4TH race on Sunday. The Blood-Horse's Tom LaMarra reports that Presque Isle officials and the Pennsylvania Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association are seeking instructions from the Pennsylvania Game Commission as well as the commonwealth's Department of Agriculture on how to proceed...

Having got the better of last year's Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere (Fr-G1) winner Full Mast (Mizzen Mast) when in receipt of seven pounds from that rival in the Prix Paul de Moussac (Fr-G3) over a mile here last time June 6, Almanaar (Dubawi) continued his purple patch with a well-judged all-the-way effort over an extra furlong in Monday's Prix Daphnis (Fr-G3). Third in the Prix de Suresnes over this trip at Maisons-Laffitte April 17, the chestnut had annexed the Prix de Pontarme reverting to a mile at Saint-Cloud May 18 prior to his battling display in the Paul de Moussac. Placed straight on to the lead by Thierry Jarnet, the homebred clearly had the measure of his rivals at the top of the stretch and, with his generous style of galloping, put himself beyond the reach of Mostaneer (Dutch Art). "Earlier in the season, I didn't think he'd do this well but he's been improving with every race and is now a top performer," trainer Freddy Head commented. "I trained the dam (Baqah), who was very good so it is especially pleasing for me. As he's a gelding, Group 1 racing is a little difficult at this stage but there are plenty of races anyway. He's been on the go since early in the season, so he deserves a little break and it could be that he comes back for the Prix Quincey ([Fr-G3] at Deauville August 30) or maybe the Prix Guillaume d'Ornano ([Fr-G2] August 15) if I want to stretch him out to a mile and a quarter."...

After an impressive maiden score at Bordeaux-le-Bouscat April 5, Wekeela (Hurricane Run) finished runner-up to the subsequent Prix de Sandringham (Fr-G2) winner Impassable (Invincible Spirit) in a mile conditions event at Chantilly May 2 before being brushed aside by the high-class Queen's Jewel (Pivotal) when in the same spot in the G1 Prix Saint-Alary (Fr-G1) over 10 furlongs at Longchamp May 24. Entitled to win Monday's Prix Chloe (Fr-G3) at Chantilly on that form, the bay duly ultimately delivered with a degree of comfort after giving favorite-backers a temporary scare. Settled despite having no cover out wide in fifth early, she was being asked a question by Jean-Bernard Eyquem approaching the quarter pole and needed a couple of reminders to pick up. Responding by unleashing a surge to gain the lead passing the furlong marker, she asserted to score with authority in the end as her stamina kicked in...

Campaigned in Italy so far, Fly On the Night (Equiano) underlined the continued strength of that country's beleaguered racing program by beating the French in one of the first of the main sprint tests for the juveniles, Monday's Prix du Bois (Fr-G3) at Chantilly. Cutting her teeth in the June 2 Premio Alessandro Perrone over 5 1/2 furlongs at the Capannelle, the bay was quickly up to dispute the early lead as Umberto Rispoli sought to use her natural pace to full effect. When asked to stretch inside the last quarter-mile, she responded instantly and readily held Tourny (Country Reel) in the run to the line. "She had won well twice in Italy with very fast times on both occasions and was due to run again in a six-furlong race in Rome, but we thought that might be too far for her and with the uncertainty about the racing there we preferred to send her here," owner Pietro Sinistri explained. "She has been staying with Mr Botti in Chantilly, which is a lovely place for training horses. She won very well there, showing her speed and class again and we will keep her in Chantilly now and train her from here for the Prix Robert Papin ([Fr-G2] at Maisons-Laffitte July 26)."...

An abundance of early speed might help former Canadian champion three-year-old Pender Harbour (Philanthropist) make a significant impact in Wednesday's C$150,000 Dominion Day (Can-G3) over 1 1/4 miles on Woodbine's Polytrack. The seven-year-old gelding successfully rallied to take his third Steady Growth S. going 1 1/16 miles June 6, and the dual classic winner will attempt to improve on his runner-up finish in this event three years ago. The 7-5 morning line favorite, Hawthorne Gold Cup (G2) winner Red Rifle (Giant's Causeway), is one-for-two over synthetic tracks, but shares a similar front-running style as recent Evangeline Mile winner Mystery Train (Not for Sale), 2013 Queen's Plate winner Midnight Aria (Midnight Lute) and the allowance-class Smooth Stone (Giant's Causeway). Multiple Grade 2-placed Patrioticandproud (Proud Citizen) enters off a course-and-distance allowance victory, won in wire-to-wire fashion, while Ontario Derby (Can-G3) hero Florida Won (Birdstone) might improve in his second start of the year for Mark Casse. Earlier in the card, 2014 Bessarabian (Can-G2) winner Hillaby (Distorted Humor) will make her season debut in the C$100,000 Sweet Briar Too over seven furlongs. Her most serious rival in Unspurned (Lemon Drop Kid), who captured the Whimsical (Can-G3) before finishing third in the Hendrie (Can-G3) and second in the Trillium this year...

Friday's $150,000 Molly Pitcher (G3) at Monmouth Park, for fillies and mares at 1 1/16 miles, features a rematch between Stiffed (Stephen Got Even) and Got Lucky (A.P. Indy), the one-two finishers in the $97,000 Monmouth Beach on May 24. On that day, Stiffed rallied from 10 lengths back to post a 34-1 upset by a half-length over Got Lucky, a multiple Grade 2-placed four-year-old who was among the betting favorites. Also among the field of seven is Shayjolie (Indian Charlie), a stakes winner at Aqueduct in March who has gone unplaced in two starts since finishing a narrowly-beaten third in the Top Flight H. (G3)...

Zia Park has released its stakes schedule for its 11th season of live racing beginning on September 12. The 56-day meet will be highlighted by the third annual Land of Enchantment Day on November 25 and New Mexico Cup Day on November 1. Zia Park will host 33 stakes races in 2015 for Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses with total purses of almost $4 million. Land of Enchantment Day on Thanksgiving Eve will feature eight stakes races worth a total of more than $1.2 million. The richest event of that afternoon will be the third running of the $300,000 Zia Park Oaks for three-year-old fillies at 1 1/16 miles, won by the Larry Jones-trained Cassatt (Tapit) in 2014. The card will also feature the $200,000 Zia Park Derby for three-year-olds at 1 1/16 miles, the $150,000 Zia Park Championship for three-year-olds and up at 1 1/8 miles, the $100,000 (up from $75,000) Zia Park Distaff for fillies and mares at six furlongs, the $140,000 Eddy County Stakes for two-year-old New Mexico-breds at one mile and the newly created $100,000 Zia Park Sprint for three-year-olds and up contested at six furlongs. Zia Park will host the richest day of state-bred stakes races in the country on New Mexico Cup Day on November 1st with 12 stakes races for New Mexico-bred Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses totaling more than $2 million in purses. Racing will take place at Zia Park from September 12 to December 15 on Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays, as well as Wednesday, November 25. Post time for the first race each day will be at 12:15 p.m. (MT).
