Edited Churchill Downs Release —- Multiple graded stakes winner By My Standards is probable to enter next Friday’s Grade 1 Clark following a half-mile move in :49.40 Friday at Churchill Downs.
The Clark is the centerpiece of Thanksgiving weekend of racing. Entries will be taken Sunday. Likely entrants include Bodexpress, By My Standards, Code of Honor, In Love (BRZ) and Plus Que Parfait. Coastal Defense and Mr. Freeze are possible to enter the race, according to trainer Dale Romans.
On Saturday, Nov. 28, the card will feature all 2-year-olds races for “Stars of Tomorrow II.” The headlining races will be the 94th Kentucky Jockey Club (GII) and its fillies’ counterpart, the Golden Rod (GII).
The likely field for the Kentucky Jockey Club includes Arabian Prince (trainer Dallas Stewart), Inspector Frost (Brad Cox), King Fury (Kenny McPeek), Super Stock (Steve Asmussen) and Swill (Cox).
The likely field for the Golden Rod includes Coach (Cox), Lady Traveler (Dale Romans), Roc’s Princess (Billy Gowan), Simply Ravishing (McPeek) and Travel Column (Cox).
Entries for Saturday’s program will be drawn Wednesday.
There will be no turf racing at Churchill Downs through the remainder of the meet and will resume next spring when the conditions become more optimum. As a result, the Cardinal (GIII) and River City (GIII) will be put on hiatus this year.
