Rosie Brings Home Ice Cream Silence

G. Watts Humphrey Jr.’s homebred Ice Cream Silence held off a late charge from Sisterhood to win the 19th running of the $100,000 Hilliard Lyons Doubledogdare Stakes (G3) for fillies and mares by a neck before a crowd of 11,897 on a brisk Friday afternoon at Keeneland.

Trained by Rusty Arnold and ridden by Rosie Napravnik, Ice Cream Silence covered the1 1/16 miles on the main track in 1:44.66. It was the second victory in the Doubledogdare for Arnold, who won the race in 1998 with Top Secret.

Ice Cream Silence is a four-year-old daughter of Street sense out of the Seeking the Gold mare Double Scoop. The victory was worth $60,000 and improved Ice Cream Silence’s earnings to $211,460 with a record of 8-4-2-0.

Napravnik put Ice Cream Silence on the lead out of the gate and led a tight pack through fractions of :24.43, :49.20 and 1:13.91. Approaching the top of the stretch, Lotta Lovin briefly put her head in front of Ice Cream Silence only to have Ice Cream Silence kick clear again.

Sisterhood, under Joel Rosario, was forced to alter course around Lotta Lovin entering the stretch and just failed to catch the winner. She finished three lengths in front of Artemus Kitten.

Ice Cream Silence returned $19.80, $8 and $4.20. Sisterhood returned $8.80 and $4.60 with Aertemus Kitten finishing third under Gary Stevens and paying $4.20 to show.

Favored Mystical Star finished a head back in fourth and was followed in order by Lotta Lovin and Inglorious.

Earlier on the program, owners Ken and Sarah Ramsey sent out two winners to boost their meet-leading total to a record-equaling 12 with five days remaining in the meet that ends next Friday.

This is the fourth time since Keeneland opened in 1936 that an ownership has had 12 winners at a meet. The Ramseys had 12 winners last fall to equal the autumn mark established in 1968 by Mr. and Mrs. Robert F. Roberts. Calumet Farm had 12 winners during the 1941 spring meet.
