Apropos Makes Stakes Debut in Roxelana

Claiborne Farm and Adele Dilschneider’s homebred Apropos, a three-time winner and earner of $109,753, will make her stakes debut in Saturday’s $65,000-added Roxelana at Churchill Downs.
 
“She’s a nice filly and deserves to get some black type,” trainer Al Stall Jr. said. “Hopefully she’ll get it Saturday. That’s the game plan.”
 
The Roxelana will be the third race of the Spring Meet for Apropros, who finished second behind Glamour Puss in an allowance/optional-claiming race on Kentucky Derby Day and then recorded an easy victory in an allowance/optional-claiming race on May 26.
 
In prep for the Roxelana, Apropos, who made headlines when scoring a 10 ¼-length win at Oaklawn Park on March 7, breezed a half-mile at Churchill Downs on June 17 in :49.80, the 18th fastest of 34 at the distance.
 
“She’s doing fine,” Stall said. “She’s only had one breeze since her last because it’ll be her third race of the meet. So, she’s just cruising along.”
 
The Roxelana at six furlongs on the main track will go as Race 10 on Saturday’s Downs After Dark Presented by Stella Artois and Finlandia Vodka racing program with a post time of 10:42 p.m.
