My Conquestadory Tops Alcibiades Baker's Dozen

Conquest Stables’ My Conquestadory, a 3¼-length winner over  males in the Summer Stakes (G2) on turf at Woodbine in her lone start, heads a field of 13 juvenile fillies entered Tuesday for Friday’s 62nd running of the $400,000 Darley Alcibiades (G1).

The Darley Alcibiades, which will go as the ninth race on Friday’s 10-race card, is a “Win and You’re In” race for the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) to be run Nov. 2 at Santa Anita. First post time Friday is 1:05 p.m. (ET) with the Darley Alcibiades scheduled to go at 5:21 p.m.

My Conquestadory, a graduate of the 2012 Keeneland September Yearling Sale, is trained by Mark Casse, who saddled Spring in the Air to victory in the 2012 Darley Alcibiades. Casse is seeking to become the first trainer since Ken McPeek in 2000 (She’s A Devil Due) and 2001 (Take Charge Lady) to win consecutive runnings of the race.

Eurico Da Silva, who was aboard for the victory in the Summer, has the mount on My Conquestadory, who will break from post position seven in the 1 1/16 mile race.

McPeek, who also won the 2008 Darley Alcibiades with Dream Empress, will send out Landaluce Educe Stables’ Rosalind in this year’s renewal. A winner in her debut at Ellis Park on grass, Rosalind was a fast-closing third in the Pocahontas (G2) on Sept. 7 in her most recent start. Victor Lebron has the mount on Rosalind, who will exit post position 12.

The other graded stakes winner in the field is Valene Farms’ Designer Legs. Trained by Dallas Stewart, Designer Legs was elevated to first place in the Adirondack (G2) at Saratoga. In her most recent start, Designer Legs finished fifth in the Spinaway (G1) on a sloppy track. Shaun Bridgmohan has the mount on Designer Legs, who will break from post position one.

The Darley Alcibiades also attracted the top three finishers from the Arlington-Washington Lassie that was won by She’s Offlee Good. Trained by Richard Scherer and undefeated in two Polytrack starts, She’s Offlee Good won the Lassie by two lengths. Julien Leparoux has the mount on She’s Offlee Good, who will break from post position 10.

The field for the Darley Alcibiades, from the rail out: Designer Legs (Bridgmohan), Richies Party Girl  (John Velazquez), Sweetsoutherndame (Pablo Morales), Maria Maria (Francisco Torres), Personal Diary (Corey Lanerie), Battlefield Angel (Channing Hill), My Conquestadory (Da Silva), Lil Honey Badger (Robby Albarado), Harlan’s Special (Joe Johnson), She’s Offlee Good (Leparoux), Who’s in Town (Luis Saez), Rosalind (Lebron) and Russian Night (Victor Schulepov). All starters carry 118 pounds.

I heard that too. TVG. They were puzzled as they thought he fit here.
I think hrtv mentioned that Five Iron is going to scratch and race in the Hawthorne Derby.
Tom, that Jamaica is either really easy or really tough. If it’s easy then we can give it to Admiral’s Kitten. I happen to think it’s going to be tough. A lot of really good horses in here. My heart is with Notacatbutalama. I’ve liked this guy from the beginning and the best part of it is that I think he has a big time chance. The dark one is Upwiththebirds. Jack Milton beat him by a neck on the pole at Keeneland early this year, but he seems to have developed since then. I would prefer to have Eurica Rosa De Silva on him but Corny is listed. Five Iron ran on the lead in his last, but he still set fast fractions. I’m betting that with this big field and with a few that can run at him early that he’ going to be vulnerable. At this point: Lama for the win with Admiral second and Birds third. Subject to change later.
Wow! And she looks so fragile in the up close views. That race blew me away. For the longest time you Couldnt even see her back there.
Then you are definaately a better man than i am .Status of stars in the game is far from my goal tommorrow. Good luck with all your action tommorrow.I am curious to see Keeneland race 3 . Coastline,this is the colt i was told was probably best in Casse' barn ,and All Most Famous toyed with him first out. Want to see if he runs a abig one. That would only flatter Famous. Doing tommorrows card now. Pretty much set on 3 stakes. Am really loving Jack Milton.Five Iron intrigues me,but i think tommorrow that Joha will go after him early.He wont let him walk the dog on the engine. .
Tom the way I look at it is if Sweet Reason loses then there must be an even better filly that is better than her and sh'e top slight IMO. It's a no lose situation for racing in N/A.
Your girl Sweetie will have her hands full in the Frizette.Last thing she needs is a date with the boys.To early in her carreer to be dating.That is what will be so much fun,like i said.It will be decided on the track.
Yes Tom, Havana is very fast, but what’s he going to do after the 5 furlong pole. I don’t pay a lot of attention to Beyers either, but they do include the DRF variant which is a good barometer when trying to determine how true to form a track is playing (not counting biases). I still think that splits are the key part when judging time as well as a balanced performance where a horse shows good abilities in each third of the race. To me, Strong Mandate has the best balanced approach of the colts. I’m not a fan of front end speed that might not carry and I’m careful when considering closing abilities when in against class horses. Sweet Reason has tremendous closing abilities, as indicated from both her starts, but she also has the ability to spread her speed out to a more balance approach as indicated in her second start. The two horses that have to show different abilities, IMO, are Havana and Honor Code. We might see this happen tomorrow in their second starts. However, I do wish that Sweet Reason was going in the Champagne instead of the Frizette, chuckle, chuckle.
Laz, as i posted to Amino on anotherthread.I am now doing a rendition of OH Canada. Just got my sheets for tommorrows races. It is scary .I have to go by these,have been for the longest time.I never pay attention to Beyers or other speed numbers.Havana is 3 lengths faster than Strong Mandate and about 6 lengths faster than Honor Code. I was shocked when i saw the other 2 horses,they were not credited with fast races at all based on how the ylooked. I knew how fast Havana ran.But the thing is,paper is for losers.You have to do it on the track.FYI,your girl Sweetie,ran as fast as Havana in her last. ,
You just witnessded a top filly who was ridden by one of the fmost underrated jockeys in North America, Eurico Rosa De Silva. If this guy raced in the US he would be a household name.
Rosalind for me.
she's gonna circle the field...♥
shes offle good just saying
You go girl!. Go Eurico!
