Peace and War Lukewarm 3-1 Favorite vs. Six Foes in $500,000 Central Bank Ashland

LEXINGTON, KY (March 31, 2015) – Qatar Racing’s Peace and War was made a lukewarm 3-1 morning-line favorite in a well-matched field of seven entered Tuesday for the 78th running of the $500,000 Central Bank Ashland (G1) for 3-year-old fillies going 1 1/16 miles over the main track Saturday.

The race offers 170 points toward qualification to the 141st running of the $1 million Longines Kentucky Oaks (G1) with 100 points going to the winner, a total that would ensure a spot in the Churchill Downs starting gate in a field limited to the top 14 point earners.
