Watsdachances Headlines Appalachian

Watsdachances
Michael E. Kisber, Bradley Thoroughbreds and Nelson McMakin’s Watsdachances (IRE), unraced since a runner-up finish in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1) last November at Santa Anita, headlines a field of 10 three-year-old fillies entered Sunday for Thursday’s 25th running of the $100,000 Appalachian Presented by the Japan Racing Association (G3) at one mile on the turf.

The Appalachian will go as the eighth race on Thursday’s nine-race program with a 4:42 p.m. (ET) post time. First post time Thursday is 1:05 p.m.

Trained by Chad Brown, Watsdachances began her career in Europe and then won her first two starts in the United States, the P.G. Johnson Stakes at Saratoga and the Miss Grillo Stakes (G3) at Belmont Park. Javier Castellano has the riding assignment Thursday on Watsdachances, who will break from post position four and carry top weight of 123 pounds.

Toting second high weight of 120 pounds is Stoneway Farm’s Midnight Ballet. Trained by Tom Proctor, Midnight Ballet won the Sharp Cat Stakes in November at Betfair Hollywood Park. Gary Stevens has the mount on Midnight Ballet, who will break from post position three.

The field for the Appalachian, from the rail out, is as follows: Rutherford Rd (Luis Contreras, 118 pounds), Unbelievable Dream (Joel Rosario, 118), Midnight Ballet (Stevens, 120), Watsdachances (IRE) (Castellano, 123), Overheard (Rosie Napravnik, 118), Eden Prairie (Brian Hernandez Jr., 118), Rusty Slipper (Edgar Prado, 118), To My Valentine (FR) (Corey Nakatani, 118), Fadeintoinfinity (GB) (Kent Desormeaux, 118) and Bethany Belle (Florent Geroux, 118).
