Millionaire and multiple stakes winner Alsvid has been retired, trainer Chris Hartman said Feb. 14
A. P. Indian, the top sprinter on the East Coast this summer, heads a seven-horse field for Keeneland's Stoll Keenon Ogden Phoenix Stakes (gr. II) Oct. 7. He was scratched from last Saturday's grade I Vosburgh Stakes due to the wet conditions.
Chris Hartman brought a string to Del Mar this year, but one in that group stood out. The trainer calls Black Hawk Stables' Alsvid the "head dog" of his stable and he'll try to earn his first top-level score in the Bing Crosby (gr. I).
Black Hawk Stable's Alsvid successfully defended his title in the $100,000 Aristides Stakes (gr. III) June 4 at Churchill Downs and snapped an 11-race winless streak in the process.
Alsvid carried on with his winning ways May 30 at Churchill Downs, upsetting the season debut of Breeders' Cup Sprint (gr. I) winner Work All Week in the $100,000 Aristides Stakes (gr. I).
Alsvid provided Hartman with his most lucrative career victory in the Count Fleet and headlines what the trainer calls his strongest stable to date. He will move to Churchill Downs for the first time during its upcoming meet.
Ted's Folly, the only Oklahoma-bred in the field of 2-year-olds for the $315,000 Remington Springboard Mile, finished with a rush to post his sixth consecutive victory on closing night at Remington Park Dec. 10.
