A soaking thunderstorm in the late morning has since dried up and the once sloppy track has been upgraded to good as post time rolls around for the 2016 edition of the Ashland Stakes. Two weeks ago, Antebellum sprang the upset to edge out previous winners Cyclone Princess and Rozlyn to catapult to number three on the points board. This week, two year filly champion Princess is back as the favorite with top distaffer Wind installed as the second choice, with Rozlyn sitting third along with stakes winners Armin, Honestly and Charisma, all coming off good efforts in prior races. Antebellum, despite her win, sits further up the board along with other winners War Chimes, SeaBlue Royalty and Midnight, with Zenyanotte and Phar South rounding out the field as hotly debated longshots. With a dirt track still damp from this morning's storm, it's 12 fillies to take to the oval and fill the gate for this year's Ashland Stakes. With many of these fillies proven winners on an off going, it's anyone's race as the stalls close on the second last stop to the Lillies.
The Road to the Kentucky Oaks continues now on SS!
