Fair Grounds: Ravi's Song may ship to Oaklawn for Apple Blossom


Ravi’s Song has run well enough in two races this winter at Fair Grounds to have won a graded stakes. In her next start, she figures to get a chance to actually do so.

“I’m contemplating running in the Apple Blossom,” said trainer Carl Bowman. “That’s not definite. I’ll let her make the determination.”
Ravi’s Song won the New Orleans Ladies Stakes by 1 1/2 lengths last Saturday, the same margin by which she had captured the Pelleteri Stakes on Feb. 12. In both races Ravi’s Song rallied strongly through the stretch despite racing well behind a leader who set moderate fractions. Ravi’s Song now has won half her 12 starts, and appeared to have come out of her career-best performance in good condition.

“When she’s doing well, you’ll know it the day after she runs,” said Bowman. “Even in the spit box she was dancing. It was really an easy race for her.”
