A Huevo tested positive for clenbuterol, a drug designed to en- hance a horse's breathing, and he was subsequently disqualified fol- lowing a lengthy battle. Since Rebellious Dreamer, owned and trained by John Casey, whose Coin Collector was one of the best West Virginia-breds of the early '908, was second that day, he was placed first and officially handed the top prize of $90,000. This year, Rebellious Dreamer is the future book favorite to capture the Classic and the $125,000 winner's share on the track, hav- ing recently won a restricted stakes at CT under Travis Dunkelberger. Past Casey Classic winners in- clude Coin Collector, who won the event in consecutive years, an- other two-time champ named Tay- lor Mountain, Nice Ainit, Take Aim, and Step Out Dancing. Only A Huevo and Ardent Arab defeated the Caseys in the Classic during the 1990s at Charles Town. Cavada, the only filly to win the Classic, won the race the only year it was contested at Mountaineer Park. Speaking of Cavada, the track named a race in her honor several years ago, and the $75,000 event for fillies and mares is contested one night before the big day. Last year, It's Binn Too Long, en route to a perfect horse of the year cam- paign for James and Eleanor Casey, captured Cavada and she will likely point for the race again this year. It's Binn Too Long has garnered a great deal of respect among local racegoers, and she is often com- pared to local distaffers Cavada, Noble's Honey and Rachers Turn. While Cavada won the Classic at Mountaineer Park, Noble's Honey finished second in the Classic twice in consecutive years to the same horse - Coin Collector. Rachers Turn, owned, bred and trained by John McKee, was simply one of the most talented ladies to compete lo- cally in the '90s. The two-year-olds will also be on display Classics Day in a pair of events. Freshman fillies will com- pete in the 4 1/2-furlong Southern States, while the colts will battle for supremacy in the 6 1/2-furlong Vincent Moscarelli Memorial. Each event will now be worth $75,000, with the winner taking home $40,000. The Moscarelli is named for one of the state's most popular train- ers, who was also responsible for the two most talented West Vir- ginia-breds of all time, Afternoon Deelites and Soul Of The Matter. This year, the track has also added the $50,000 Dash For Cash, a 4 1/2-furlong event restricted to ance events and $16,000 claimers, will have the chance to compete for a $30,000 winner's share and the bragging rights as the fastest state-bred in the land. While the emphasis Classics day is on the state-breds, Charles Town will also offer three open stakes, the Governor's Cup, the Sam Palumbo and the Robert Hil- ton. Last year, Citiworld splashed through the slop to capture the Governor's Cup, and his recent vic- tory in a 4 1/2-furlong sprint at Mountaineer Park indicates he should be poised to defend his title.
