Three-time stakes winner Storming Inti and 2013 Generous (gr. IIIT) victor Global View are the most accomplished horses in a full field of 12 that were entered in the Transylvania Stakes (gr. IIIT) April 4.
Harry's Holiday obliterated the field in the 96ROCK Stakes, the first local prep for the Spiral Stakes (gr. III) at Turfway Park, but he faces a tougher crowd March 1 in the John Battaglia Memorial Stakes.
Maiden Tapiture put away early leader Laddie Boy in the stretch and then drew off to register a 4 1/4-length knockout victory in the $175,200 Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes (gr. II) Nov. 30 at Churchill Downs.
