Inglorious Ready for Fair Grounds Return

Donver Stable’s Inglorious, who broke her maiden in the first start of her career in Woodbine’s $150,000 Fanfreluche Stakes last Oct. 24, kept her undefeated record intact at two-for-two by capturing Canada’s $150,000 Ontario Lassie Stakes by 5 3/4-lengths Dec. 4,

 

On Saturday, the Josie Carroll trainee will try to take the next step by giving a good performance in Fair Grounds’ Grade III Rachel Alexandra Stakes, designed as the final prep race for the upcoming Grade II Fair Grounds Oak March 26.

 

“Everything is good so far,” said Carroll Thursday morning during training hours. “She’ll be in against some really good fillies like Kathmanblu and Bouquet Booth, but our objective is to find out where she fits with fillies like those. We thought about going in that earlier race here (the Silverbulletday Stakes as the first leg of the local sophomore series), but she’s already been two turns and we don’t need to hit every race. It’s a long year.”

 

Donver Stable is the nom-de-course of Donna and Vern Dubinsky, who raced Careless Jewel to win Delaware Park’s Grade II Delaware Oaks and Saratoga’s Grade I Alabama Stakes in 2009.  They run a Canadian-based trucking company that delivers pipes to the oil fields in Alberta.

$125,000 GUARANTEED ALL GRADED STAKES PICK 4 OFFERED SATURDAY


Fair Grounds Race Course will offer an All-Graded Stakes Pick 4 on Saturday with a guaranteed pool of $125,000.

 

The all graded stakes Pick 4 will begin on Race 7 with the Grade III Rachel Alexandra Stakes for 3-year-old fillies, continue with the Grade III Mineshaft Handicap for older horses on the main track, continue further with the Grade III Fair Grounds Handicap for older horses over the Stall-Wilson turf course and then conclude with the Grade II Risen Star Stakes for 3-year-olds. That race serves as the final prep for the $1 Million Grade II Louisiana Derby five weeks later on March 26.
