Rebuff continues his quest for a Kentucky Championship at Red Mile

Lexington, KY — On Sunday (Sept. 11) Red Mile will host two $80,000 fourth round legs of the Kentucky Championship series, two $30,000 fourth round legs of the Kentucky Commonwealth series and two $15,000 fourth round legs of the Golden Rod series for sophomore male and female trotters and pacers.

Sophomore male trotter Rebuff will attempt to collect his second consecutive victory in Championship series action. Boudoir Hanover will look toward her third consecutive victory in her respective division for 3-year-old pacing fillies.

Rebuff returned to action on Aug. 28 after a sixth-place finish in the $1 million Hambletonian on Aug. 6 as the favorite. The son of Muscle Hill-Meucci Madness hit the wire in 1:51.4 at Red Mile, defeating Keg Stand by a nose.

Rebuff was second in the Championship series final last year to Double Deceiver (David Miller, post position four, 4-1), who is also in this week’s field.

Trained by Lucas Wallin, Rebuff will be steered by regular driver Tim Tetrick in the second race on the Sunday card. He will leave from post position two and is 2-1 on the morning line in the field of seven. Bred by Steve Stewart and Michael Andrew, the colt was a $200,000 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale purchase by his trainer, along with Kjell Magne Andersen and Pieter Delis. He now sports a resume of 16-8-2-1 and a bankroll of $623,270.

Boudoir Hanover and pilot Todd McCarthy will begin their mile from post position four in a field of six and are 9-5 on the morning line. The daughter of Captaintreacherous-Bedroomconfessions has racked up two wins in this series on Aug. 21 in 1:50.3 and Aug. 30 in 1:51.1.

Trained by Tony Alagna, Boudoir Hanover won her last race over the Lexington red clay by a head over Always Gonna B You (David Miller, post three, 5-1) and outslugged a game Msdinosis Blugrass in the second round of this series. Msdinosis Blugrass leaves from post position five on Sunday with Dexter Dunn holding the lines. She is 9-2 on the morning line.

Boudoir Hanover is owned by Riverview Racing, Alagna Racing, Caviart Farms, D. Plouffe and S. Head, and was a $200,000 purchase at the 2020 Standardbred Horse Sale. Bred by Riverview Breeding and Visionary Breeders, Boudoir Hanover has now earned $463,001 and has a record of 20-6-5-2.

The two Commonwealth series contests and two Golden Rod series events are for male and female sophomore pacers and trotters.

The Red Mile will also offer a $10,000 guaranteed Pick-4 (races six through nine) in conjunction with the U.S. Trotting Association’s Strategic Wagering program.

Sire stakes action continues at Red Mile on Sept. 18 with the Kentucky Championship series finals.

First post is 1 p.m. (EDT).
