LEXINGTON, KY (Oct. 7, 2016) – Chadds Ford Stable’s Dancing Rags swept past pace-setting Caroline Test at the top of the stretch and had more than enough left to hold off a late bid from Daddys Lil Darling to win the 65th running of the $400,000 Darley Alcibiades (G1) for 2-year-old fillies by a length before a Fall Meet record Friday opening-day crowd of 19,882.  The previous Friday opening-day Fall Meet record was 19,026 established in 2011.
