Chadds Ford Stable’s Dancing Rags, winner of last fall’s Darley Alcibiades (G1) at Keeneland, will make her 2017 debut Sunday when she faces six rivals in the 32nd running of the $ 150,000 Adena Springs Beaumont (G3) for 3-year-old fillies.
Run over the Beard Course of 7 furlongs, 184 feet, the Adena Springs Beaumont will go as the eighth race on Sunday’s nine-race program with a 4:57 p.m. ET post time. First post time is 1:05 p.m.
The Adena Springs Beaumont is the final qualifying race in Kentucky for fillies looking to move on to the $ 1 million Kentucky Oaks (G1) on May 5 at Churchill Downs. A total of 17 points are available in the Adena Springs Beaumont on a 10-4-2-1 scale for the first- through fourth-place finishers.
Trained by Graham Motion, Dancing Rags will be making her first start since finishing eighth in the 14 Hands Winery Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) at Santa Anita in November. Angel Cruz, who rode her in the Darley Alicibiades, has the mount and will break from post position five.
Also returning to the races after finishing off the board in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies is St. Elias Stable’s Sweet Loretta.
Trained by Todd Pletcher, Sweet Loretta won her first three starts with her biggest victory coming in a dead heat with Pretty City Dancer in the Spinaway (G1) at Saratoga. Javier Castellano has the mount on Sweet Loretta, who will break from post position three. (Pretty City Dancer is entered in Saturday’s $ 500,000 Central Bank Ashland-G1 here.)
