Monastic Heads Interesting Bourbon Field

Scott Heider and Michael Dahir’s Monastic, a half-brother to turf stakes-winning fillies Keertana and Snow Top Mountain, tops a field of 13 2-year-olds entered Thursday for Sunday’s 21st running of the $150,000 Bourbon (G3) at 1 1/16 miles on the turf.

 

The Bourbon, one of two graded stakes on Sunday’s 10-race card, will go as the eighth race with a 5:13 p.m. (ET) post time. First post time Sunday is 1:15 p.m.

 

Trained by Tom Proctor, Monastic was a fast-closing third in his debut August 13 at a mile on the turf at Arlington Park but came back three weeks later to break his maiden by 3½ lengths going a mile. Garrett Gomez has the mount Sunday on Monastic, who will break from post position four.

 

Five other maiden winners on the turf are in the Bourbon field as well as Team Valor International’s Lucky Chappy (IRE), a stakes winner in Italy on the grass who also is entered in Saturday’s Dixiana Breeders’ Futurity (G1).

 

The field for the Bourbon, from the inside out, is as follows: Curfew Tower (Edgar  Prado), Animal Spirits (Robby Albarado), Smart Ellis (Victor Espinoza), Monastic (Gomez), Burn the Mortgage (Corey Lanerie), Splendiferous (John Velazquez), Gold Megillah (Rajiv Maragh), Here Comes Frazier (Julien Leparoux), Personal Interest (Daniel Centeno), Coalport (Junior Alvarado), Downtown Driggs (James Graham), Lucky Chappy (IRE) (Ramon Dominguez). Also Eligible: Chalybeate Springs (Jon Court). All starters will carry 118 pounds.
