Repository Goes for Second Straight Stravinsky Triumph

A well-matched field of fillies and mares, including defending champion Repository, is entered to run in the 5 1/2-furlong Stravinsky Stakes over the Keeneland turf course Sunday.

Defending champion Repository has been rested since her summer campaign. From the barn of Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas, the Mary Bonham colorbearer was an easy winner of the Stravinsky last spring. She has run well fresh in the past and could add another julep cup to her collection if she is ready off the bench. John McKee will be in the saddle.

WinStar Farm's Dyna Wa Dyna will probably be the post time favorite by virtue of her recent turf sprint victory at Gulfstream Park. The daughter of Doc's Leader won the Valley View Stakes here last fall and looks tough to beat in this spot. Her favorite rider Pat Day will get a leg-up from trainer Elliott Walden.

Put Me In has won seven of her 13 lifetime starts. The Merrill Scherer trainee has only raced once on the grass, a third-place effort, but has the pedigree to relish the grass. Hall of Fame jockey Jerry Bailey has the call.

Run For The Roses Stable, Inc.'s Boozin' Susan is very effective in turf sprints. Trainer Jeff Thornbury expects a top effort from the daughter of French Deputy. Robby Albarado will take the reins.
