Longshot Peace and War Wins Grade 1 Darley Alcibiades;

Work All Week Takes Grade 3 Stoll Keenon Ogden Phoenix

LEXINGTON, KY (Oct. 32014)  Qatar Racing’s Peace and War rallied from far back to overtake Top Decile late to win the 63rd running of the $400,000 Darley Alcibiades (G1) for 2-year-old fillies by a half-length before a Fall Meet opening-day crowd of 13,789.

Quotes from the $400,000 Darley Alcibiades (G1)

Olly Stevens (winning trainer of Peace and War)

“We purchased her at Keeneland (at the September Yearling Sale) then took her back to England. She won her first out then we caught some bad ground at Ascot in England, which is one of the main reasons we came over here.

“She’s been back 12 days. Julien (Leparoux) breezed her here on Sunday, the day I flew in, and he really liked her. He jumped off another filly to ride her, actually.”

Quotes - $400,000 Darley Alcibiades (G1)

Mark Casse (winning trainer of My Conquestadory)

On whether he was worried when she had to check on the backstretch

“A little worried? My thoughts were, ‘Here we have this great filly and she’s not going to be able to show how great she was.’ I wasn’t upset or worried for me, I was worried for her, because I wanted her to be able to show you how great she was. That was my concern.”
