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 - $750,000 Shadwell Turf Mile (G1)

Charlie Lopresti (winning trainer of Wise Dan)

“He’s good. He’s really good. He was so good coming out of the Woodbine race (Grade 1 Ricoh Woodbine Mile on September 16 that) I just didn’t want to breeze him too many more times. I figured this (racing in the Shadwell Turf Mile) would give him a chance to maybe breeze him one more time easy and then run him (in the Breeders’ Cup World Championships).
