Inglorious Meets Mystical Star at Keeneland
April 17, 2013 06:09am

Donver Stable’s Inglorious, winner of the 2011 Queens Plate against males, heads a field of eight entered Tuesday for Friday’s 19th running of the $100,000 Hilliard Lyons Doubledogdare Stakes (G3) for fillies and mares going 1 1/16 miles on the main track.

The Hilliard Lyons Doubledogdare will go as the ninth race on Friday’s 10-race program with a 5:13 p.m. (ET) post time. First post time is 1:05 p.m.

Trained by Josie Carroll, Inglorious enters Friday’s race off a third-place finish in the Suwannee River Stakes (G3) on turf at Gulfstream Park on February 9. In her most recent start on an all weather surface, Inglorious finished third as the favorite in the Bayakoa Handicap (G2) at Betfair Hollywood Park on December 12.

Julien Leparoux will have the mount Friday on Inglorious, who will break from post position three.

Figuring to vie with Inglorious for favoritism is Cheyenne Stables’ Mystical Star, runner-up in the Juddmonte Spinster Stakes (G1) here last fall. Trained by Christophe Clement, Mystical Star won the New York Stakes (G2) on turf last June at Belmont Park and enters Friday’s race off a third-place finish in the Hillsborough Stakes (G3) at Tampa Bay Downs in her 2013 debut.

Jose Lezcano will have the mount on Mystical Star, who will break from post position five.

The field for the Hilliard Lyons Doubledogdare, from the rail out, is as follows: Artemus Kitten (Gary Stevens), Ice Cream Silence (Rosie Napravnik), Inglorious (Leparoux), Alaura Michele (Corey Lanerie), Mystical Star (Lezcano), Sisterhood (Joel Rosario), Lotta Lovin (Alan Garcia) and Minakshi (FR) (Joe Rocco Jr.). All starters will carry 118 pounds.
