Category : News - Mon 08/09/2014 - 12:42 EDT

On Monday at Presque Isle Downs, the featured race is the 8th edition of the $400,000 Presque Isle Master Stakes. The six and a half furlong contest will be run on the synthetic main track and has drawn a field of twelve.

Topping the full field at morning line odds of 5-2 is Ageless for trainer Arnaud Delacour. The five-year-old daughter of Successful Appeal has won her last three races, all of which have come on turf. An eight-time career winner, the bay mare will be trying synthetics for the first time after winning on both turf and dirt. Julian Leparoux will be aboard and the pair will break from post position ten.

Madame Cactus going for second graded stakes win

Second choice at morning line odds of 7-2 from post position eight is Madame Cactus for trainer Peter Eurton. The four-year-old daughter of Cactus Ridge was last seen finishing second in the Rancho Bernardo Handicap (G3) at Del Mar and will again have Joe Talamo in the irons. The chestnut filly has won three of her eight career starts and earned the first graded stakes win of her career in the Raven Run (G2) at Keeneland last October.

International Living the Life (IRE) going for two in a row

Also in the field at odds of 3-1 is Living the Life (IRE) who will be making her second start stateside for Gary Mandella. After racing primarily in Great Britain, the bay daughter of Footstepsinthesand (GB) made her United States debut a winning one at Del Mar in August against optional claiming competition. Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith will remain aboard and the pair will break from post position seven.
