With a $400,000 purse and some major points along the Kentucky Derby Trail, the Risen Star Stakes at Fair Grounds has attracted an overflow field of 15 3-year-olds headed by grade III winners Oxbow and Circle Unbroken.
Grade III winner Circle Unbroken makes his 2013 debut Jan. 19 in the $200,000 Lecomte Stakes at Fair Grounds, stretching out in distance and taking on eight other 3-year-olds including Canadian stakes winner Avie's Quality.
Circle Unbroken survived an objection after turning in a game performance in the $109,800 Bashford Manor Stakes (gr. III) to remain unbeaten June 30 at Churchill Downs.
