RICHEBOURG (Curlin), an $800,000 Keeneland September yearling purchase by Alpha Delta Stable, kicks off her career for Chad Brown. Produced by a half-sister to MGISW Evening Jewel (Northern Afleet), she is a half-sister to GI Triple Bend S. winner Denman's Call (Northern Afleet). Scarlett Lace (Medaglia d'Oro), a half-sister to ill-fated champion sprinter Points Offthebench (Benchmark), debuts for Brian Lynch. She RNA'd for $500,000 at Keeneland September. TJCIS PPs

'TDN Rising Star' HIDDEN SCROLL (Hard Spun) makes his highly anticipated return to the races for new connections after bringing $525,000 from Marc Detampel as a horse of racing age at last year's Keeneland November Sale. Formerly campaigned by his breeder Juddmonte Farms and trainer Bill Mott, the bay's form is highlighted by a pair of blowout, double-digit length victories and triple-digit Beyers, but little went right in his four most recent trips to the post, including a trio of turf tries in New York, finishing fifth last time at Saratoga Aug. 1. The 2019 GII Xpressbet Fountain of Youth S. fourth-place finisher fired a four-furlong warning shot for Brad Cox in :47 2/5 (1/125) at Oaklawn Jan. 17. TJCIS PPs

ABROGATE (Outwork), a runaway front-running debut winner for Steve Asmussen at Churchill Downs Nov. 12, takes on winners for the first time. The runner-up that day Zoom Up (Upstart) has since won two straight, including a Fair Grounds optional claimer in her two-turn debut earlier this week. The Alex and JoAnn Lieblong colorbearer, favored at 8-5 on the morning line, gets first-time Lasix. She was the co-fourth most expensive yearling of 66 from Outwork's first crop to change hands, bringing $270,000 at Keeneland September. TJCIS PPs
