Alcibiades Rematch Expected in Ashland

#9 Spring in the Air and jockey Patrick Husbands win the 61st running of the Darley Alcibiades Grade 1 $400,000 for 2 year old fillies at Keeneland Racecourse, for owner John Oxley and trainer Mark Casse. October 5, 2012.

John Oxley’s Spring in the Air, Calumet Farm’s Broken Spell and Columbine Stable’s Magical Moon, the 1-2-3 finishers in last fall’s Darley Alcibiades (G1), are expected to be among the names to pass the entry box Wednesday for Saturday’s 76th running of the $500,000 Central Bank Ashland (G1).

The 1 1/16-mile race on the main track offers 170 points toward the 139th running of the $1 million Kentucky Oaks (G1) on Friday, May 3 at Churchill Downs. The Central Bank Ashland winner gets 100 points with 40 for second, 20 for third and 10 for fourth.

Trained by Mark Casse, Spring in the Air finished second in her 2013 debut last month in a restricted stakes at Ocala. Broken Spell, trained by three-time Ashland winner D. Wayne Lukas, is stakes placed this year at Oaklawn Park. Magical Moon, trained by Al Stall Jr., has second- and fourth-place finishes in two starts at Fair Grounds this year.

Other three-year-old fillies expected to pass the entry box according to Keeneland Racing Secretary Ben Huffman are Adriani, trained by David Fawkes, Every Way (Mike Stidham), Kitten’s Dumplings (Mike Maker), Kitten’s Point (Graham Motion), Kyriaki (Peter Eurton), Nipissing (Rachel Halden), Redressthebalance (IRE) (Doug O’Neill), Spring Venture (Casse), Tapicat (Bill Mott), Tuttipaesi (IRE) (Motion) and Wave Theory (Chad Brown).
