Saturday’s 38th running of the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup (G1) Presented by Dixiana will be the featured race of the week. Klaravich Stables’ two-time graded stakes winner Technical Analysis (IRE) and Michael Dubb, Madaket Stables and Robert LaPenta’s Shantisara (IRE) headline a field of 10 3-year-old fillies. The 1 1/8-mile grass test will go as the eighth race on Saturday’s 10-race program with a 4:44 p.m. ET post time. First post Saturday is 1 p.m. Chad Brown, who has saddled three winners of this race to match the feat of Jimmy Toner and John Veitch, trains both Technical Analysis and Shantisara. Headlining the European contingent Saturday is Mrs. John Magnier, Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith’s Empress Josephine (IRE) for trainer Aidan O’Brien. Empress Josephine is following in a trail blazed 10 years ago by Together (IRE) for the same connections. Together ran second in the First Lady (G1) and a week later closed her career with a victory in the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup. Empress Josephine finished third in Saturday’s First Lady under John Velazquez, who retains the mount and will break from post position four. Velazquez has won the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup a record five times beginning in 1995 with Perfect Arc. His other winners are Alwajeeha (2008), Crown Queen (2014), Time and Motion (2016) and Cambier Parc (2019). Edward Bowen grew up in Fort Lauderdale, Florida where he was influenced by a father who liked horses.

In 1960 he attended the University of Florida to study journalism then in 1963 transferred to the University of Kentucky, a move that allowed him to also write for the Lexington-based The Blood-Horse magazine. The veteran turf writer and racing historian will join John to discuss the racing industry, touching on a variety of topics and weighing in on his favorite farms, horsemen and horses he has written stories on during his storied career.
