Eight Probables for Stephen Foster

While the connections of Rachel Alexandra are still undecided about which stakes race the filly will run in June 12, two Churchill Downs events for which the Horse of the Year is being considered are taking shape.


According to Churchill Downs racing officials, eight horses are probable and three are possible for the 29th running of the $600,000 Stephen Foster Handicap (gr. I) at 1 1/8 miles on the main track.

If Blame were to win the Stephen Foster Handicap? That would make him 6 for 7 lifetime, with 1 place, all over conventional dirt, should he win? If he does, I think you'd have to then put him as the top contender among older males that could potentially rate with Quality Road. His stat's are as equally impressive as Quality Road's right now as far as win's, place, and shows. Except Blame has yet to win a Grade 1 Stakes race. He has three Grade 2, and one Grade 3 Stakes win's in his five lifetime wins. But winning the Stephen Foster Handicap would give him his first Grade 1 win. I really believe you'd then have to start thinking about sending this colt to Saratoga for the Whitney Handicap or the Woodward Stakes to take his shot at Quality Road for the #1 older male on conventional dirt in America. Should he get the job done at Churchill Downs in the Stephen Foster Handicap? TJMO.
