Hallowed Dreams Chases History, and Plenty More to Watch


Kristufek, Joe, Daily Herald (Arlington Heights, IL)


Four years and one day ago, Cigar rewrote the history books by equaling Citation's modern day record of 16 consecutive victories.

An Arlington International crowd of over 35,000 witnessed a feat that had the entire racing world buzzing.

On Saturday, a 3-year-old filly named Hallowed Dreams should join that elite company, hoping to remain perfect in 16 lifetime starts by winning the $40,000 Dixie Miss Stakes at Louisiana Downs.

Racing purists will ignore the record, considering she has never won out of the state and hasn't truly defeated a legitimate rival. Her "competition" this time consists of four fillies with a combined record of 10 wins from 44 starts.

Bourbon Belle, who won for the first time in 5 starts this year last out, will look to become racing's newest millionaire in the $400,000 Princess Rooney Handicap. The 5-year-old mare will have her work cut out for her against fellow female blow darts Show Me The Stage, Cassidy and Hurricane Bertie.

The $200,000 Azalea Breeders' Cup for 3-year-old females is anybody's race, with Swept Away, England's Rose and Precious Feather likely to vie for top billing. The $100,000 Calder Turf Sprint Championship features former world-record holder Heckofaralph, who has fallen on hard times in recent months.

- Laurel: $300,000 DeFrancis Memorial Dash (G1). …
