Parading dominated the Grade 3 Ben Ali at Keeneland in the spring, winning by over 7. Back at Keeneland for Saturday's closing-day $150,000 Fayette Stakes, a Grade 2 race at 1 1/8 miles on Polytrack, Parading should feel right at home. He faces a challenge in the Fayette that includes nine rivals, led by Public Speaker, Wicked Style, Dominican, and an up-and-coming 3-year-old in Blame, who, perhaps in contrast to Parading, has been peaking this fall. Blame has blossomed since the early summer but has run his best races on the natural dirt, and it is unknown if he will transfer that quality form to the Polytrack. Dominican might be a longshot, but should not be overlooked completely, as he beat 2007 Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense in the Blue Grass Stakes (G1) here at Keeneland and was a bit rank last out in what was probably too long a race for him at 1 1/2 miles.
The The 2009 Fayette Stakes horse was made available to the Horse Racing Fantasy Community on Saturday, October 31, 2009. This race was held at Keeneland with a field of 10 horses. Public Speaker, Jades Revenge, Parading, Medjool, National Pride, Giant Oak, Wicked Style, Tizfiz, Blame, and Dominican competed in this spectacular 1.125 mile race on a Synthetic track. The Horse Racing Fantasy Community ran this race in game - below you will find the results of the heated competition.
