My Conquestadory Unstoppable in Alcibiades

Conquest Stables’ My Conquestadory overcame a troubled trip to win the 62nd running of the $400,000 Darley Alcibiades (G1) for 2-year-old fillies by 1 ¾ lengths over Rosalind before a fall meet-opening crowd of 15,391 at Keeneland on Friday.

The victory earned My Conquestadory a berth in the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) to be run Nov. 2 at Santa Anita.

In the Darley Alcibiades, My Conquestadory was trapped behind horses on the inside in the run down the backstretch. Approaching the far turn, jockey Eurico Da Silva was able to move off the rail and began picking off rivals to move into contention.

Moving into the short stretch run, My Conquestadory tackled longshot Battlefield Angel, disposed of that rival and had more than enough to hold off Rosalind, who closed from far back to get second.

The victory gave trainer Mark Casse his second consecutive victory in the race coming on the heels of a victory by Spring in the Air in 2012. Casse is the third trainer to win the Darley Alcibiades in consecutive years, joining D. Wayne Lukas in 1988-89 and Ken McPeek in 2000-01.

A 2012 Keeneland September Yearling Sale graduate, My Conquestadory covered the 1 1/16 miles on the main track in 1:45.61. The victory was worth $240,000 and increased My Conquestadory’s earnings to $355,908.

A winner of the TVG Summer Stakes (G2) against the boys in her only other start, My Conquestadory is a Kentucky-bred daughter of Artie Schiller out of the Malibu Moon mare Golden Artemis.

Favored in the field of 12, My Conquestadory returned $4.40, $3.40 and $3. Rosalind, ridden by Victor Lebron, returned $4.80 and $3.80 with Battlefield Angel, ridden by Channing Hill, finishing a half-length back in third and paying $9.20 to show.

Who’s in Town finished 2½ lengths back in fourth and was followed in order by Harlan’s Special, Designer Legs, Personal Diary, Sweetsoutherndame, Russian Night, Maria Maria, Lil Honey Badger and She’s Offlee Good.
