Dayatthespa Headlines Appalachian

Caroline Forgason’s Somali Lemonade, winner of the JPMorgan Chase Jessamine (G3) here last fall, and Jerry Frankel, Ronald Frankel, Steve Laymon and Bradley Thoroughbreds’ Dayatthespa, winner of the Herecomesthebride (G3) this March at Gulfstream Park, headline a field of nine 3-year-old fillies entered Sunday for Thursday’s 24th running of the $100,000 Appalachian (G3) at a mile on the turf.

 

The Appalachian, won last year by Winter Memories, will go as the eighth race on Thursday’s nine-race program with a 4:42 p.m. (ET) post time. First post time Thursday is 1:05 p.m.

 

Trained by Michael Matz, Somali Lemonade has not started since finishing sixth in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G2) after a wide trip that began from post position 14. Alex Solis, who has ridden the Lemon Drop Kid filly in all three of her starts, has the mount Thursday. Somali Lemonade will break from post position four.

 

Dayatthespa, who is trained by Chad Brown, finished ninth in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf to close 2011. In addition to her victory in the Herecomesthebride, Dayatthespa also won the Sweetest Chant at Gulfstream Park. Dayatthespa, who worked a half-mile this morning in :47 on Sunday morning, will break from post position one under Javier Castellano.

 

The field for the Appalachian, from the inside out, is as follows: Dayatthespa (Castellano, 123 pounds), Little Sadie (Victor Lebron, 118), Lemon Splendor (Julien Leparoux, 120), Somali Lemonade (Solis, 123), Biogio’s Gift (Luis Martinez Jr., 118), Firehouse Red (Robby Albarado, 118), Andrew’s Girl (Leandro Goncalves, 120), Regalo Mia (Jesus Castanon, 118) and Dream Pegasus (Manny Cruz, 118).
