Placeholder Image
Last Saturday’s $40,000 Noel Laing Stakes in Virginia pulled three potential starters from $100,000 Carolina First Colonial Cup Steeplechase, leaving Saturday’s Camden fall classic with 10 chasers scheduled to take the starting flag for the final Grade I chase of the National Steeplechase Association season. The first of the scheduled six races --- four chases, one timber and one on the flat --- is slated to go off at 12:30 p.m. The gates to the Springdale Race Course will open to the public at 9 a.m. The Noel Laing was won by Irv Naylor’s Decoy Daddy and trained by Desmond Fogarty. Finishing second was Riverdee Stable’s Dictina’s Boy, trained by Thomas Voss, while Karen Eyles’ Canardly, saddled by Edward Mulligan, was fifth.
