LAUREL -- Eighteen horses have been pre-entered in the $125,000 Kamora Breeders Classic, headliner of the West Virginia Breeders Classics at Charles Town Race Course on Saturday night.
The Kamora is the richest of six races in the Classics, all of which are limited to offspring of West Virginia sires.
Purses for the races total $260,000.
Because only 10 horses can start in races at Charles Town, eight will have to be eliminated from the Kamora by entry time tomorrow. The field will be pared to reflect the top money earnings during the past two years.
The horses and their earnings:
Taylor Mountain, $76,523; Kiss My Tan, $75,036; Ara Russell, $58,620; Gentle Is The Nite, $54,760; Rogers Marcy, $51,701; Woodburn Hall, $49,636; Wigtightner, $44,575; Visual Five, $37,152; Another O'Shay, $27,499; Tango Argentino, $25,656; Honourable Friend, $18,495; Opequon Lad, $18,321; Top Crown, $14,633; Mad Spree, $14,220; Famous Comic, $13,671; Aye Aye Sir, $12,810; Tropical Society, $11,140; and Bilisi $10,403.
* Reputed Testamony, with Andrea Seefeldt aboard, rallied from last and won the Laurel Race Course feature by 2 3/4 lengths.
The colt, owned by Matthew Kane and partners, covered 1 1/16 miles in 1 minute, 44 2/5 seconds and paid $12.80. He is a Maryland-bred son of Deputed Testamony, the 1983 Preakness winner.
