Moreno wins Charles Town Classic; Shared Belief eased but
Favored at 1-5 with an impressive three-race win streak in tow, Shared Belief
(Candy Ride) broke slowly in Saturday's $1.5 million
Town Classic (G2) and was eased about halfway into the race before being
vanned off. Initial reports from the state veterinarian were positive, with the
four-year-old gelding showing slight swelling in a stifle but resting
|Moreno streaked home
"He just seemed to slip in behind and wasn't comfortable," Mike Smith said.
"The safe thing to do at that point was to get back in one piece."
Southern Equine Stables' homebred Moreno (Ghostzapper) proved best in
front-running style, scoring by a two-length margin with jockey Cornelio
Velasquez. The five-year-old gelding established a new track record of 1:48.81
for the 1 1/8-mile distance.
"He's (Velasquez) won 5,000 races," trainer Eric Guillot said. "It's not like
he doesn't know how to ride a race horse. But he listened to the directions and
instructions and the logistics of the race perfectly. I guess if he would have
lost I probably would have said otherwise, right?
"You know how it works in this game. I wouldn't put the blame on myself.
There's only one respect that really counts, it's called self-respect."
Moreno returned to the winner's circle for the first time since the Whitney
(G1) at Saratoga six starts previously. He opened 2015 with a runner-up finish
to Shared Belief in the Santa Anita H. (G1) and was exiting a third in the March
28 New Orleans H. (G2) at Fair Grounds.
Sent postward as the 7-1 third choice among nine runners, Moreno returned $16
to win and $23.20 to show. Show payoffs were lucrative due to Shared Belief
finishing off the board, with runner-up Imperative lighting up the tote with a $71.20 mutuel and third-placer Page McKenney paying $45.60.
Moreno earned $1 million to increase his bankroll to $3,074,940 and his
record now reads 26-4-8-4.
The Kentucky-bred bay broke on top but surrendered the early advantage to 84-1 outsider Warrioroftheroses (A.P. Warrior), who led by about a length
through opening splits of :23 and :47 before throwing in the towel. Moreno took
the lead entering the backstretch of the three-turn event and was clear the rest
of the way.
"I wanted to send for the lead, but the other had more speed," Velasquez
said. "I wanted to put him in good position. I wanted to keep him busy. I had a
lot of horse. I need to stay busy. The horse, you need to stay busy. At the
three-eighths pole I asked him and he didn't stop. He went OK."
"The trick is it wasn't like he had the lead all the way turning for home,"
Guilot added. We took over at the three-eighths pole. The configuration of the
track -- short stretch, three turns -- and the horse is doing great. The horse
hasn't done a whole lot wrong.
"People misunderstand how good this horse. In the words of the great Johnny
Campo, 'I'm a horse trainer, pal.' It's that simple. Very humble, they named the
pie after me: humble pie. I'm here for two reasons -- to pass out lollipops and
win big races and I'm fresh out of lollipops."
Moreno's other graded victory came in the 2013 Dwyer (G2) and he's placed in
a total of eight stakes, including a nose second in the 2013 Travers (G1) and a
third in last year's Charles Town Classic.
The well-bred gelding hails from the unraced Danceinthesunlight (A.P. Indy),
who is out of the Canadian champion and Grade 1-winning millionaire
Dancethruthedawn (Mr. Prospector). Moreno counts Canadian Horse of the Year and
1991 U.S. champion three-year-old filly Dance Smartly (Danzig), an earner of
more than $3.2 million, as his third maternal dam and this female family is
littered with high-class performers, including Grade 1 winner Smart Strike (Mr.
Prospector), the sire of two-time Horse of the Year Curlin.

Whiskey Ticket hangs on to win Illinois Derby
Twelve months after seeing Midnight Luck (Midnight Lute) lose the same race
in a photo, trainer Bob Baffert had better fortune in the $400,000
Derby (G3) at Hawthorne on Saturday when Whiskey Ticket (Ghostzapper)
prevailed narrowly over Conquest Curlinate (Curlin).
The 2-1 second choice in a field of eight three-year-olds, Whiskey Ticket
tracked in fourth as 6-5 favorite Cross the Line (Line of David) and A. Rod
Again (Awesome Again) dueled and traded leads through splits of :23 2/5 and :46
4/5. Whiskey Ticket made a three-wide bid into contention around the far turn
and set his sights on A. Rod Again, who was up a length passing six furlongs in
Seizing control turning into the stretch, Whiskey Ticket opened up to lead by
1 1/2 lengths with an eighth to go and was all out to hold on over Conquest
Curlinate by a nose in a time of 1:50 4/5 for nine furlongs on a fast track.
Whiskey Ticket, owned by the partnership of Mike Pegram, Karl Watson and Paul
Weitman, returned $6.40. He was ridden to victory by Martin Pedroza.
"I was a little concerned before the race. He was a little anxious. Not
nervous but anxious," Pedroza said. "I told the pony person to keep him away from the other
horses. I galloped him a little bit just to take the edge off and it worked. He
seemed to be pretty relaxed after that.
"He broke a little sluggish but recovered right away. I
tracked right behind the other horses. He didn't seem to mind the dirt too
much. He didn't like it at first but he got used to it. I didn't want him to
get too much dirt on him so I put him in the clear. I didn't want someone to
box me in. Turning for home I was screaming bloody murder and whipping him left
handed and right handed. I don't think he ever saw the horse coming on the
outside, he was kind of too far away, so I put my horse close to him. Anyway, we
got the job done.
"I want to thank my best friend Rene Douglas," Pedroza added. "He was one of
the reasons that I came over here. He told me I was crazy if I didn't come for
Baffert. He told me this was a nice horse. He won at a mile in his first start
and there aren't many horses that can do that."
Conquest Curlinate was four lengths clear of Phenomenal Phoenix (Summer
Bird), who was followed by Verraco (Old Fashioned), Cross the Line, Private
Prospect (Discreet Cat), A. Rod Again, and Kantune (Kantharos). Lewys Vaporizer
(Lewis Michael) was scratched.
"I had to ride him a little bit just to get him going," jockey Shaun
Bridgmohan explained about Conquest Curlinate. "He
takes a little encouragement. He's a big kid that's still learning but at least
he's going in the right direction. Not to take anything away from the winner
but both horses ran hard to the end."
The Illinois Derby was the second career start for Whiskey Ticket, who upset
his one-mile debut at Santa Anita by a head at 14-1 on March 19. He has now

Elkhorn turns into Dramedy with 30-1 winner
Dramedy (Distorted Humor) has taken years to live up to his
pedigree, but the 30-1 longest shot on the board delivered in Saturday's
$250,000 Elkhorn (G2) at Keeneland. All he needed was a dramatic step up in trip
to 1 1/2 miles, and a pokey pace scenario, to upstage such logical players as
Dynamic Sky (Sky Mesa), defending champion Unitarian (Pulpit) and Biz the Nurse
|Dramedy prevailed in the Elkhorn at Keeneland
A half-brother to Grade 1-winning millionaire Bluegrass Cat
(Storm Cat) from the immediate family of 2010 Kentucky Derby (G1) star Super
Saver (Maria's Mon), Dramedy was a debut maiden winner at Aqueduct for breeder
WinStar Farm. Shortly thereafter, he was sold for $185,000 at Keeneland in
November 2012. The bay finished third in a Santa Anita allowance for his new
connections, CTR Stables and Moore Racing, only to head to the sidelines for 15
Dramedy, who resurfaced on the East Coast last spring,
changed hands again, this time for $70,000 at Fasig-Tipton Kentucky in July.
Making his first start for the John James Revocable Trust and trainer Michael
Pino, he captured a Delaware Park allowance.
Later in the fall, Dramedy switched to the barn of Gerald
Aschinger, who had actually signed the ticket for him at Fasig-Tipton. The
six-year-old hinted that he was on the upswing when a rallying fourth in the
one-mile Appleton (G3) at Gulfstream Park on March 28, as well as a bullet work
on Keeneland's main track last Saturday.
Under Joe Bravo, Dramedy ranged up to match strides with
early leader My Afleet (Afleet Alex) through a half-mile in :52 2/5. The pair
turned the Elkhorn into their own private match race, opening up a double-digit
lead on the field through splits of 1:16 1/5, 1:40 3/5 and 2:05 1/5.
Despite drifting out down the lane, Dramedy pulled clear of
the weakening My Afleet. The closers furiously bore down late, but not in time,
as the longshot held on by a diminishing neck from Dynamic Sky. Unitarian, the
2-1 favorite, was another head away in third in his title defense. Biz the Nurse

La Verdad repeats in Distaff romp
Lady Sheila Stable's La Verdad (Yes It's True) returned to her winning ways
in stellar fashion on Saturday at Aqueduct, wiring the $190,000
Distaff H. (G2) to defend her title in the race by 5 1/4 lengths. Jockey
Jose Ortiz has been exclusively aboard the Linda Rice trainee since she began
her career in March 2013, and guided her in the Distaff to finish six furlongs
in 1:10 over the fast main track.
|La Verdad left her three rivals scattered behind, and around, her in the Distaff
(NYRA/Adam Coglianese Photography)
The race really came down to second as La Verdad established splits of :22
1/5, :44 4/5 and :56 4/5 while loping along on the lead in front of her three
rivals. Frivolity (Corinthian) and Mamdooha (Daaher) duked it out behind her for
the runner-up spot, with the former taking second-place honors by a neck on the
wire. Aireofdistinction (Songandaprayer) blew the turn badly and found herself
running near the grandstand rail before finishing fourth and last, 10 1/4
lengths behind Mamdooha.
La Verdad paid $2.60 as the prohibitive 1-4 favorite after show wagering was
canceled. The bay mare was making her five-year-old bow in this spot, having
closed out 2014 with an uncharacteristic seventh in the Fall Highweight H. (G3)
against the boys. Prior to that she captured the Iroquois S. and just missed by
a head when second in the Gallant Bloom H. (G2), both at Belmont Park.
La Verdad was fifth in the Ballerina S. (G1) and Honorable Miss H. (G2) last
summer at Saratoga, which snapped a four-race win streak comprised of the
Distaff 'Cap, Broadway S., Critical Eye S. and Dancin Renee S. She had a
five-race winning skein broken when second while making her stakes bow in the

mark to go along with $900,700 in lifetime earnings.

Sand gets up in time as Queen of Santa Barbara
Derrick Fisher's Queen of the Sand (Footstepsinthesand)
rallied from near the back of the pack to foil front-running Fanticola (Silent
Name) in Saturday's $151,000
Santa Barbara H. (G3) at Santa Anita. The 1
feature took a sad turn when Diversy Harbor (Curlin), the 5-2 favorite, was
pulled up with an injury to her left front leg.
|Queen of the Sand (outside) just got up to take the Santa Barbara
Craig Bernick of Glen Hill Farm was quick to inform fans
concerned about Diversy Harbor, tweeting right after conferring with trainer Tom
"I spoke with Tom, he thinks Diversy Harbor broke her
sesamoid, will take a picture when back at barn," Bernick reported. "He thinks
she'll live, no more running."
In a follow-up tweet, Bernick revealed that the "X-ray
showed both sesamoids broke." He promised another update in a couple of days,
adding that "she's in best care & has good shot."
Diversy Harbor captured the Buena Vista (G2) two back, but
the classy closer didn't get much pace help when sixth in the March 15 Santa Ana
(G2) last time out. Queen of the Sand was also exiting the Santa Ana, where she
was a non-threatening eighth in her seasonal reappearance.
The Paddy Gallagher mare was sent off as the 6-1 fourth
choice here, and fired in her second start off the bench. Patiently handled by
young Drayden Van Dyke, Queen of the Sand had only Diversy Harbor behind her in
the early going.
Meanwhile, Fanticola was trying to stretch her
sprinter/miler speed over 1 1/4 miles for the first time, and doing a fine job of
it through tepid splits of :24 2/5, :48 1/5, 1:12 4/5 and 1:37 on the firm turf.
Tangelo (Square Eddie) tracked in second, pocketing the 5-2 Three Hearts (Hat
Trick) on the fence most of the way. Three Hearts finally got out in the
stretch, but by that point, Queen of the Sand was bursting from the pack.
Fanticola dug deep in her attempt for a poignant victory.
Originally trained by the late Mike Mitchell, whose memorial service will be
held at Santa Anita on Monday, she has continued to progress for his protégé,
Phil D'Amato. Although Fanticola did her utmost for the Mitchell-turned-D'Amato
barn, she could not quite hold on.
Queen of the Sand forced her nose in front to mug Fanticola
on the line, stopping the teletimer in 2:01. Three Hearts checked in another 1
lengths astern in third, and Walk Close (Tapit) was fourth.

main track in a bullet :58 4/5 under regular rider Martin Garcia for the May 2
Kentucky Derby (G1), Santa Anita Derby runner-up One Lucky Dane (Lookin at

Bejarano pulled him up. The horse ambulance brought One Lucky Dane back to
Baffert later advised the media that X-rays had revealed the beginning of a
condylar fracture in his left front foot, and that two screws would be inserted
during subsequent surgery. One Lucky Dane is expected to be out four months.
It was immeasurably better news on Dortmund, who worked in company with Game
On at Midnite (Midnight Lute), who was clocked in 1:00 4/5. Dortmund's time was
the fastest of 59 at the distance, the average time of which was 1:00 3/5.
"It was a nice move," Baffert said of Dortmund. "He was really happy out
there. The track was in great shape today. He's happy. There's no regression
(since the Santa Anita Derby on April 4)."

shipping to Kentucky Tuesday.
"It was a super work," Pletcher said. "I'm very happy with him."
Daily Racing Form's Mike Welsch, who clocked the important workout,
reported that Materiality galloped out six furlongs impressively in 1:13 4/5.
Materiality has run all three of his races at Gulfstream, where he launched
his career with a 4 1/4-length score in his six-furlong debut on January 11. The
colt stretched out around two turns in spectacular fashion on March 6, winning
the 1 1/8-mile Islamorada H. by 5 3/4 lengths. Making his graded-stakes debut in
the Florida Derby, Materiality prevailed over favored Upstart by 1 1/2 lengths
at 1 1/8 miles.
Pletcher-trained Itsaknockout (Lemon Drop Kid), the Fountain of Youth (G2)
winner through the disqualification of Upstart (Flatter) and the fourth-place
finisher in the Florida Derby, breezed a half-mile in :48 while working in
company with Competitive Edge (Super Saver), his undefeated stablemate.
Following his busy early morning at Palm Beach Downs, Pletcher jetted to
Kentucky to observe Blue Grass (G1) winner Carpe Diem (Giant's Causeway) breeze
at Keeneland later in the morning.
Materiality, Stanford and Itsaknockout are scheduled for final tune-ups at
Churchill Downs next Saturday. Competitive Edge, who returned from a layoff of
nearly seven months to capture the Tamarac S. at Gulfstream by 8 1/4 lengths on
March 27, is slated to run next in the Pat Day Mile (G3) on the Kentucky Derby

Carpe Diem breezes half-mile in :48
With regular rider John Velazquez aboard, Blue Grass (G1)
winner Carpe Diem (Giant's Causeway) worked a half-mile on his own in :48 over a
fast track Saturday morning at Keeneland.

(Wendy Wooley/EquiSport Photos)
Owned by WinStar Farm and Stonestreet Stables and trained by Todd Pletcher,
Carpe Diem came on the track at 10:15a.m. (EDT) after the track had been
closed to all horses. He was accompanied by a lead pony before easing away en
route to producing fractions of :12, :24, :36, :48, out five furlongs in 1:00
2/5 and six furlongs in 1:13 4/5.
"I got him in :48 flat," Pletcher said. "He galloped out almost to the
half-mile pole and Johnny had a hard time pulling him up, which is a good sign.
He is a fit horse."
Carpe Diem's work capped a busy morning for Pletcher, who began the day in
Florida where three of his other Kentucky Derby (G1) hopefuls worked at Palm
Beach Downs training center.
Asked if he had had a morning like this before with works in two states that
he personally viewed, Pletcher grinned broadly and said, "No.
"Logistically, everything fell into place," he said. "You prefer to work on a
fast track and with the good chance of rain coming in here tomorrow, Keeneland
went out of their way to accommodate us and we appreciate that a lot.
"We needed the sun to come up at Palm Beach Downs, and my first horses worked
at 6:25. I was able to fly on (Stonestreet owner) Barbara Banke's plane and
Keeneland let us work later so that I could get here and Johnny would have time
to work the horse before catching a plane to Charles Town (in West Virginia)."
Pletcher, who arrived at Barn 6 at 10:07, said he was happy with all the
works of his Derby hopefuls, but comparing them "would be like apples and
oranges. Materiality (Afleet Alex) worked very well with Stanford (Malibu Moon).
It was his second work since the Florida Derby (G1) and he got a solid
five-eighths. He bounced out of the Florida Derby really well."
Daily Racing Form clockers got the pair in 1:00.52 with a final
quarter in :23.57.
In addition to Materiality and Louisiana Derby (G2) runner-up Stanford, Itsaknockout
(Lemon Drop Kid) worked
a half-mile in company with the undefeated Competitive Edge in :48.17. Itsaknockout finished fourth in the Florida Derby.
Pletcher said the three Florida workers would ship to Churchill Downs on Tuesday
after training at Palm Beach Downs that morning and have their final works for
the Kentucky Derby next weekend at Churchill Downs.
Travel plans for Carpe Diem have not been finalized.
"Most likely he will have his final (pre-Derby) work here, but we haven't
decided," Pletcher said.
Nor has a decision been made on riders for the Kentucky Derby, especially for
Carpe Diem and Materiality.
"I will talk with Johnny on Monday," Pletcher said of the regular rider for both
horses. "Ultimately, it is Johnny's decision. Those are two very good horses,
and he is four-for-five on one (Carpe Diem) and three-for-three on the other."

International Star, Danzig Moon, Keen Ice work at Churchill
International Star (Fusaichi Pegasus), whose victory in the Louisiana Derby (G2)
completed a sweep of Fair Grounds' trio of Kentucky Derby (G1) prep races, took a
brief van ride to Churchill Downs Saturday for a five-furlong work over the
one-mile dirt course that will host the Kentucky Derby (G2) in two weeks.
Jockey Miguel Mena was in the saddle as the New York-bred worked
in company with stablemate Dreams Cut Short (Belong to Me) and covered five furlongs over fast
footing in 1:01 4/5. International Star's final time for the distance ranked
34th among 58 works at the distance. His workmate was timed in 1:02 3/5.
Internal fractions for International
Star were timed in :12 2/5, :25 and :37 1/5 and he galloped out six furlongs in
"It was a pretty routine work for
him," trainer Mike Maker said. "We were looking for a strong gallop-out and he
gave it to us."
After the work, International Star shipped back to Maker's regular training
base at Trackside training center, which is located four miles from Churchill
Downs. The colt is scheduled to return on Monday or Tuesday to take up residence
in Barn 27 and train at Churchill Downs through the Derby.
Danzig Moon (Malibu Moon), runner-up to Carpe Diem (Giant's Causeway) in the recent
Blue Grass (G1) at Keeneland, turned in a sizzling five-furlong breeze in
:58 over a fast track in his first serious training move
since the April 4 race.
The Derby contender had
jockey Julien Leparoux in the saddle when Churchill Downs clockers timed him in
internal fractions of :11 2/5, :22 2/5, :34 and :45 3/5. He galloped out six
furlongs in 1:12 1/5. Danzig Moon's gallop-out time for three-quarters of a mile
was faster than the work turned in by fellow Derby hopeful Keen Ice (Curlin),
who was timed in 1:13 1/5 in the only official six-furlong work of the Saturday training
Danzig Moon worked in
company with stablemate and Churchill Downs Distaff Turf Mile (G2) candidate Tepin
who had an identical five-furlong clocking and their moves tied as the fastest
of 58 works at the distance. The swift move by Danzig Moon left assistant
trainer Norman Casse, the son of trainer Mark Casse who oversees his father's
stable at Churchill Downs, concerned that the colt could have done too much just
14 days out from the Derby.
"We usually reserve our two-weeks-out
works to be our big works and, unfortunately, I think he got a little
overzealous leaving the pony," Casse said. "He's a fast horse and he worked
fast, and Julien recognized that and really didn't ask him to do too much
"We know he likes the racetrack and the horse he worked with is a very,
very talented horse. The horse that worked is running on Derby Day as well. We
purposely worked them together because they basically have the same target:
different races, but on the same day. Had he not gotten away and ran-off the
first bit, the overall time wouldn't have been nearly as fast. But it's OK."
Casse took a close look at Danzig
Moon immediately after the work and will do so again Sunday morning.
"I've already gone over him and
already jogged him by hand, and we did a post-breeze scope and all those things
are perfect," Casse said. "That's the important thing."
Keen Ice, a closing fourth in the Louisiana Derby. broke off from the five-furlong pole.
rider Tammy Fox positioned Keen Ice on the outside of the companion and guided
him through fractions of :23 1/5, :35 1/5, :47 1/5 and
:59 4/5. After the conclusion of the work to the seven-eighths pole, Keen Ice
galloped out an addition furlong in 1:27 3/5.
Keen Ice, who broke his maiden at Churchill Downs in September, has accrued 22 points on the
Road to the Kentucky Derby Series from third place finishes in the Remsen (G2)
and Risen Star, and his Louisiana Derby fourth. That put
him No. 21 on the preference list, which meant he needed one horse to withdraw
in order to compete in the May 2 classic.
"We've been taking our time with this horse," trainer Dale Romans said. "I've
never really squeezed the lemon and made him work fast because he's not a
naturally fast workhorse. But coming into this race, he's
done everything we've asked him to do. We've been hoping to squeeze the lemon
the last three weeks before the Derby and have him peak to run an all-time best
race on the first Saturday in May. So far it's working out well. He had a fast
five-eighths work last week (1:00 1/5 on April 11) and this week he comes back
three-quarters in 1:13 and change.
"This is a prototype Derby horse. He's built like one -- big and strong and
should be able to handle himself if he gets bumped around -- and the further they
run, the better. Every race he's run, he's been closing fast. This is the first
time these horses will be going a mile-and-a-quarter. He does not control his
own destiny like a horse that has tactical pace and they forwardly place
themselves. We're going to need a fast pace and a clean trip but if we get it
then he's the type of horse that can win the Derby."
American Pharoah (Pioneerof the Nile), the reigning
two-year-old champion and the possible favorite for the Derby, had an easy 1 1/2-mile gallop Saturday morning.
Exercise rider Jorge Alvarez was in the saddle for the first gallop for the
Bob Baffert trainee since his Monday arrival. American Pharoah rolled to his fourth consecutive win and stakes
victory a week ago in the $1 million Arkansas Derby (G1) at Oaklawn Park.
American Pharoah galloped during the first of the 15-minute training sessions
devoted exclusively to horses being pointed toward the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks
trainer Jim Barnes said American Pharoah had done well during his brief time at
Churchill Downs and would continue to train during that Derby-Oaks training
window that begins at approximately 8:30 a.m. (EDT) following the mid-session break
for track maintenance.

Puca, Luminance, Birdatthewire and Include Betty breeze ahead of Kentucky
Donegal Racing's Kentucky Oaks (G1) hopeful Puca (Big Brown), runner-up in Aqueduct's Gazelle
S. (G2) on April 4, tuned-up for her May 1 Oaks bid with a four-furlong work in
:48 1/5 over the fast track at Churchill Downs on Saturday.
|Puca will enter the Oaks
boasting just one career victory
(Breeders' Cup Ltd.)
The three-year-old filly had Jo Lawson in the saddle as she worked in company with stablemate Japan
(Medaglia d'Oro). Puca's internal fractions were timed by
Churchill Downs clockers in :12 2/5 and :24 2/5 and she galloped out five furlongs
in 1:00 4/5 and six furlongs in 1:14 2/5.
The work by Puca ranked 10th among 57
training moves at the half-mile distance. She started off 1 1/2 lengths in
front of her three-year-old stablemate Japan, who was timed in :48, the eighth-fastest move of the day, for his work.
"I thought it was a good, nice steady
work," said Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott, who was at Churchill for his filly's first work over the
track. "There was plenty of horse the whole way. She finished up good and
galloped out very good."
The work was the first serious
training move for the Donegal filly, who shipped to Churchill Downs shortly
after her runner-up finish to Kentucky Oaks contender Condo Commando (Tiz
Wonderful) in the
Gazelle. She finished 2 1/2 lengths behind Condo Commando in that race at the
Oaks distance of 1 1/8 miles.
Puca's lone victory in six career
races was a 16-length romp in a Belmont Park maiden race last October 1. That win was
followed by a troubled sixth-place run while making her stakes debut in the
Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) at Santa Anita. Her only
other race during her three-year-old season was a fourth-place run in Gulfstream
Park's Davona Dale S. (G2) on February 21.
"She broke her maiden very
impressively and then she ran well coming back in the Breeders' Cup where she
had a rough trip and got stopped," said Mott, who has not saddled a winner
in the Kentucky Oaks. "She's indicated that she belongs.
She ran second in the Gazelle so she's coming off of a good race and the horse
that won the Gazelle was alone on the lead with nobody to challenge. So we felt
that if she gets a little pace (in the Oaks), she gets the mile-and-an-eighth
well enough. So we're going to give her a chance."
Trainer Bob Baffert sent out Kaleem Shah Inc.'s Luminance (Tale of the Cat) on Saturday
under the Twin Spires to breeze for a possible tilt at the Kentucky Oaks. The
bay lass zipped through a sizzling, bullet half-mile in :46 to have the fastest
time of 57 at the distance on the day.
Runner-up while making her stakes bow in the Santa Anita Oaks (G1) lat out,
Luminance covered the first quarter in :23 and
galloped out five furlongs in :58 4/5.
Forum Racing's Oaks contender Birddatthewire (Summer Bird) breezed a half-mile
at Churchill Saturday in :47 1/5 with splits of :11 4/5, :23 3/5 and :35 1/5 for
trainer Dale Romans.
Winner of the Gulfstream Park Oaks (G2) and Forward Gal S. (G2), the bay filly galloped out five furlongs in :59
3/5, three-quarters in 1:12 3/5
and seven-eighths in 1:27.

Bodhisattva turns back Noteworthy Peach to take Federico
Bodhisattva's (Student Council) efforts to wire Saturday's $100,000
Federico Tesio S. at Pimlico were derailed a bit when Noteworthy Peach (Read
the Footnotes) headed him in the stretch, but the chestnut colt battled back on
the inside of that rival to take command once again and this time draw off for
the 1 1/2-length win.

Trained by owner Jose Corrales and ridden in the 1 1/16-mile contest by
Trevor McCarthy, Bodhisattva set splits of :24 4/5, :49 and 1:13 3/5 as
Noteworthy Peach kept in close contact just to his outside. All Hands (Unbridled's
Song), the full brother to Eight Belles, was sent off the 6-5 favorite in this
spot after breaking his maiden by seven lengths on March 15 at Aqueduct and
saved ground on the inside just behind those two on the backstretch.
All Hands couldn't keep up as Noteworthy Peach began his move, ranging up to
run in tandem Bodhisattva in the lane. Those two battled it out to the wire,
with the latter stopping the clock in 1:45 on the fast main track.
"It was pretty clear with the soft fractions that we got
away with one," McCarthy said. "I thought (All Hands) would go with me and I
actually yelled to (jockey) Fernando (Jara), 'Go on with it,' but he didn't; he took back. I
said, 'Ok, this is our race. Let's go for it.' (Bodhisattva) went out there with the easy
fractions and we actually re-broke at the quarter-pole.

career line to go along with $165,095 in lifetime earnings.
Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin said he was not
disappointed in the effort of All Hands, who finished third while making his stakes debut in just his
third lifetime start.
"I thought we might be on the lead. The
eventual winner took that spot from us coming out of the first turn. They
weren't going that fast," McLaughlin said. "I think he would have been better
off on the lead with a clean face, but that happens. He ran on gamely to hang on
for third. We'll regroup and probably go back to an allowance race next time."
Prior to the Tesio, Sycamore Racing LLC's Nellie Cashman (Mineshaft) prevailed by a nose in the
$100,000 Dahlia S. with Forest Boyce holding the reins. The duo tracked in
second as near 2-1 favorite Istanford (Istan) set the early pace, moved up to
take command as that one faded in the lane and just held as Run of the River

finished in 1:35 4/5 for a mile on the firm turf.

Muhaarar, Redstart take Newbury Guineas trials
Muhaarar (Oasis Dream), Redstart (Blame) and Arab Spring (Monsun) look set to
be horses to follow over the coming months following impressive victories in the
feature races on day two of the Spring Trials Meeting at Newbury on Saturday.
The Charlie Hills-trained Muhaarar broke the seven-furlong course record with
a neck victory over Estidhkaar (Dark Angel) as the Hamdan Al Maktoum pair fought
out the finish to a particularly strong renewal of the £60,000 Greenham Stakes
Held up in the middle of the field by Frankie Dettori, 16-1 chance Muhaarar
produced a strong run to take the lead inside the final furlong and had to be
kept up to his work to see off the late challenge of Estidhkaar.
Ivawood (Zebedee), the 13-8 favorite was third, 4 1/2 lengths behind the
front two, while last year's champion juvenile Belardo (Lope De Vega) failed to
cope with the good to firm ground and trailed home eighth of the nine runners.
"We always knew that Muhaarar was a good horse -- he won a Gimcrack S.
(Eng-G2) last year," Hills said. "There was a question mark over whether he
would get the trip and, looking at the line-up, it was a very competitive race.
"They went a good, solid pace and he traveled through the race perfectly
well. If anything, he might have got to the front a bit too soon but, luckily,
he saw the trip out well.
"I think we will have to decide where to go over the next couple of weeks.
Frankie said that the French Guineas (Fr-G1) could suit him well but it's
obviously Sheikh Hamdan's decision. The Two Thousand Guineas (Eng-G1) has also
got to be well up there on the agenda. It's a decision that we have to make and
we will see how he comes out of the race."
Richard Hannon Jr., responsible for the second and third, said: "Estidhkaar
ran a super race and will go to the Two Thousand Guineas with every chance -- he
has got the ideal profile for a Guineas horse. Ivawood is a horse that carries a
lot of weight and will improve a lot for the run."
Ralph Beckett claimed the £60,000 Fred Darling S. (Eng-G3) for a fourth time
in 10 years as Kempton Park maiden winner Redstart made virtually all for Pat
Dobbs to win by three-quarters of a length from Jellicle Bell (Invincible
"Redstart didn't work well last week and I told (owner) David Oldrey that we
may have to think again but he was keen to run," Beckett said. "I think it was a
"The previous three winners we have had of this race won it every different
way. Penkenna Princess held on, Moonstone Magic won fairly easily on soft ground
and I think Puff only just held on as well, so it's difficult to compare them
with each other and this filly.
"I had the German Guineas (Ger-G2) in mind for her but David said that I
should put her in the One Thousand Guineas (Eng-G1), so she will have to run in
"She will get a mile, for sure. Her mother, Ecstasy, was the third winner
that I ever trained and one of the five horses I inherited from Peter Walwyn
when he retired. She stayed a mile and a quarter so I would be surprised if
Redstart didn't get a mile well."
A return to Newmarket may also still be on the cards for last year's Cheveley
Park S. (Eng-G1) heroine Tiggy Wiggy (Kodiac). The 11-10 favorite could only
finish third under Richard Hughes on her first appearance over seven furlongs.
"I think Tiggy Wiggy settled well and finished her race off OK," Hannon said.
"We will still think about the One Thousand Guineas -- obviously it is
disappointing that she didn't win but it is only a trial and there is a good
chance that she might have needed it.
"We will go home, sleep on it and see how she comes out of the race. Hughsie
said that he wouldn't have won today over five, six or seven furlongs, which is
interesting. She settled very well, so there were no excuses there, and got home
"On the evidence, it looks like she probably does get the trip. She has run a
little lackluster and a little below expectations. We will go home and see what
the problem is but, if she never wins another race, she has been a pleasure and
a delight to have anything to do with."
Sir Michael Stoute enhanced his superb record in the £60,000 John Porter S.
(Eng-G3) as Arab Spring gave the Newmarket trainer a unparalleled sixth success
in the 12-furlong contest.
Sent off an 11-4 chance on his first appearance since July, Arab Spring
stayed on strongly under Ryan Moore to prevail by a length over Pether's Moon
(Dylan Thomas), with 13-8 favorite Romsdal (Halling) back in third.
"I was delighted with Arab Spring," Stoute said. "He hasn't run since the
Princess of Wales's S. (Eng-G2) in July and he traveled so well throughout
"Today was important but he is a lightly-raced horse. This was only his
seventh start, so hopefully we can progress him a little bit more. He can go 10
(furlongs) or 12, so there are lots of options. We will stop and think, get him
back, and there are plenty of races for him."

Moody saddles Group 1 double as Dissident closes out career
at Royal Randwick
Saturday's Royal Randwick meeting could hardly have marked a better conclusion to the Sydney autumn carnival for champion trainer Peter Moody, who saddled the winners of both Group 1 races on the card as well as a Group 3 winner earlier in the day.
An hour after the two-year-old filly Pasadena Girl (Savabeel)
collected her first Group 1 win in the Champagne S., seasoned sprinter/miler Dissident (Sebring) closed out
his racing career in style while collecting his fifth Group 1 score in the All Aged S.
Dissident, who now goes to stud at Newgate Farm in the Hunter Valley, was let go the fourth
choice in what was considered one of the best lineups of the season. Breaking on top,
Dissident soon consented a narrow advantage to Australian Guineas (Aus-G1) winner Wandjina
(Snitzel), while last-out TJ Smith S. (Aus-G1) victor Chautauqua (Encosta de Lago) and highly rated sprinter Terravista (Captain Rio) traveled wide
in their wake.
Dissident headed Wandjina in midstretch and the stubborn three-year-old
fought back to reclaim the advantage for a few strides, but Dissident wore him
down thereafter to get his head in front on the line as Chautauqua made a
belated rally down the inside and Scissor Kick (Redoute's Choice) battled on gamely on the rail.
"He has never gotten the accolades, this colt," Moody
said. "He has raced at group level from day one, (and won) five Group 1's. He won his first
start, he won his last -- you're mad if you don't send a mare to him.
"I've had the pleasure of retiring three Group 1
winners -- Typhoon Tracy, Black Caviar and Dissident," Moody added. "The first two were Horse
Year winners. This bloke has put his hand up to be number three. I am extremely proud of
him and my staff."
Dissident was scooped up by Moody for A$210,000 at the
Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale in 2012, and he earned black-type right out
of the box when winning the listed Blue Diamond Preview on debut the following January.
Put out to pasture following a seventh in the Blue Diamond S. (Aus-G1),
Dissident recorded a string of narrow defeats to begin his sophomore campaign,
and at last saluted again in the Hobartville S. (Aus-G2) last March. He followed up with his first Group 1 win two weeks
later in the Randwick Guineas, but failed to measure up to his elders when 12th
in the Doncaster Mile (Aus-G1) to wrap up his season.
Dissident put that performance very
much behind him when kicking off his four-year-old season with back-to-back Group 1 scores in the Memsie S. and Makybe Diva S. in Victoria, and after getting nosed out of a third Group 1 in the Sir Rupert Clarke S., he ran sixth in the Caulfield S.
(Aus-G1) to wrap up his campaign.
Dissident picked up some new owners and a new set of silks over the winter holiday when the China Horse Club and Newgate Farm bought into him.
Kicking off his autumn campaign with a third in the Australia S. (Aus-G2) over 1200 meters at Moonee Valley
on January 24, he notched his fourth Group 1 three weeks later over this trip in the C.F. Orr S., and entered
Saturday's contest off a third in the February 28 Futurity S. (Aus-G1).
"My staff in Melbourne have done a tremendous job to bring him back," Moody
praised. "The last run we
were a little bit disappointed. We've had him up here (in Sydney) for 10 or 12 days. When
Jimmy (Cassidy) galloped him here last Friday, I wanted to convince him how well he was
going and he convinced all of us."
Of his stable's achievements on the day, Moody added,
"It doesn't get much better than that. We've had multiple Group 1's previously; I think
Pasadena Girl was the 50th for my stable. This one is number 51."
While Dissident signed off on his career Saturday, Pasadena Girl swooped from near last to earn her maiden Group 1 in the Champagne, the
final leg of the Sydney two-year-old Triple Crown.
Kicking off her career just two months
ago, Pasadena Girl won Flemington's listed Talindert S. going 1100 meters in her
February 21 debut, and followed up three weeks later when stepping up to 1200 meters in the Thoroughbred Breeders S.
(Aus-G3) over the same strip. She lost her unbeaten record over the heavy
going in the April 4 Sires' Produce S. (Aus-G1) over 1400 meters, but nonetheless picked up in
the closing stages to make an eye-catching late move from last.
Taking up a similar
position near the back of the strung out pack with just one beaten early in this spot, Pasadena
Girl swung wide at the top of the lane and began to pick off rivals with each stride. She
hit the lead just strides before the wire but won cozily.
"She is a little gem," Moody said. "It was
probably only the heavy ground that cost her the Sires' the other day. She ran super and
she has backed that up today with another very solid performance."
Moody noted that when he purchased Pasadena Girl for
just A$25,000 at Inglis Premier a year ago, he didn't expect to yet see her at the races,
let alone winning a Group 1 as a juvenile.
"When I purchased her I expected her to be going to the
races this time next year," he noted. "She surprised us. She has an unbelievable attitude
towards racing and towards her work for a little filly. She has buttered up for the fourth
time here and she has probably presented bigger and stronger each time even though she is
only a pony.
"She has showed us unbelievable ability, but I kept thinking she is a
little light Savabeel, she is a little light Savabeel, she is a little light Savabeel, this is going to
go sore, it will be in the paddock, it'll go sore, it'll be in the paddock -- it's not sore,
we'll take her to Flemington (for her debut) and give her a run."
Moody said spring plans for Pasadena Girl could include
the Thousand Guineas (Aus-G1).
"She is a Flight S. (Aus-G1), Thousand Guineas-type
filly, and then you look at the Wakeful (Aus-G2) and Oaks (Aus-G1), you would like to think."
Jockey Hugh Bowman sat on Pasadena Girl for the first
time Tuesday when working her with a stablemate.
"She worked very well with a partner and I said when we
were coming back in to (rider) Steve Parr, what are you on?' Dissident,' he said, so my
confidence grew and she is certainly going to be a force in the springtime."

Christine Hayden's homebred Unspurned (Lemon Drop Kid) rallied from
midpack rounding the turn in Saturday's $146,287 Whimsical S. (Can-G3) at
Woodbine, angled out three wide in the stretch and got up late under jockey Alan
Garcia to record a one-length victory. The four-year-old chestnut completed six
furlongs on the synthetic Polytrack in 1:09 for trainer Roger Attfield, scoring
her first win since taking the Bison City S. last summer at the Toronto venue.
Unspurned's career mark now stands at 12-4-4-1 and she's banked $452,969
Robert Spiegel's homebred Vision Perfect (Pollard's Vision) ran down
pacesetter Made in Detroit (Arch) to take Saturday's $98,000 Woodhaven S. at
Aqueduct by a neck with jockey Manuel Franco aboard. The David Donk-trained
sophomore entered the race off a pair of stakes efforts -- just getting caught
himself to be second at 28-1 in the Pilgrim S. (G3) and capturing the Awad S. --
and finished this 1 1/16-mile, firm turf test in 1:46 1/5. Vision Perfect was
favored at 2-1 against his four rivals in the Woodhaven, and improved his career
record to 5-3-1-1, $213,300...
Cellist Racing Group and Ali Nilforushan's Papacoolpapacool (Temple
City) lived up to his 1-2 favoritism on Saturday at Santa Anita Park when taking
the $79,750 La Puente S. by 4 1/4 lengths under jockey Gary Stevens. The bay
gelding drew off under a hand ride to post a final time of 1:49 2/5 for nine
furlongs on the firm turf. In the process, Papacoolpapacool moved his record to
a perfect three-for-three since being transferred from Jeff Mullins to the
shedrow of Philip D'Amato. The sophomore captured the Pasadena S. on March 21
and now boasts a 4-1-1 mark from eight career starts and $192,750 in earnings...
In addition to the Charles Town Classic (G2) and a myriad of West
Virginia-bred stakes, Charles Town also played host to the $150,000 Sugar Maple
S. and $100,000 Robert Hilton Memorial on Saturday. First up was the Robert
Hilton Memorial, which went to Control Stake (Discreetly Mine) from the
barn of Tom Amoss. Campaigned by Klaravich Stables and William H. Lawrence, the
bay sophomore was 4 1/2 lengths clear on the wire as the even-money favorite in
his first start since taking the Big Drama S. to open the year on January 31.
Jockey Cornelio Velasquez was aboard as Control Stakes stopped the clock in 1:24
1/5 for seven furlongs on the fast track. A few races later, Robert T. Manfuso's
Taketheodds (Street Sense) just ran down Flattering Bea (Flatter) to take
the Sugar Maple by a neck in 1:24 3/5 after going seven furlongs. The Ian
Wilkes-trained four-year-old miss earned her first stakes win in this spot with
Mike Smith in the irons and improved her lifetime mark to 13-4-1-2, $214,775...
Deceptive Vision (A.P. Indy) exited her narrow victory
in Friday's Doubledogdare S. (G3) at Keeneland in good order, according to
trainer Malcolm Pierce. "She's good this morning," Pierce said. "I hope to come
back here at the end of October for some race." That would be around the time of the Breeders' Cup World
Championships, which will be held at Keeneland for the first time October 30-31. Deceptive Vision now is a graded stakes winner on dirt and
turf. "I really thought she got beat," Pierce said of the victory by a short
head over Lunar Surge (Malibu Moon). "She is going to Woodbine on
Monday." It was the second tough loss of the meet for Lunar Surge,
who was beaten a half-length in a third-place finish against allowance company on
April 4 at Keeneland. "That was a similar type race with her bottled up on the
inside," said Richard Normington, assistant to trainer George Weaver. "She
bounced right out of that first race here and put on weight and was good this
morning." Normington said there were no immediate plans for the
five-year-old mare. "She was a little bit irritated that she didn't win
yesterday," Normington said. "She wanted to drag the rider into the winner's
circle." Trainer Larry Jones said Blue Violet (Curlin) was OK
after finishing third. "We will look for something in the Delaware area leading to
the Delaware H. (G1)," said Jones, who spends his summers at Delaware Park. "I
know the Obeah (G3) is out there." The $100,000 Obeah is run at 1 1/8 miles on
June 20 as the major prep for the $750,000 Delaware 'Cap going 1 1/4 miles on July 18...
Keeneland racing analyst Tom Leach interviewed trainer
Carl Nafzger about Unbridled, who 25 years ago won the Kentucky Derby (G1)
after finishing third in Keeneland's Blue Grass S. (G2). Nafzger also comments on
the leading contenders for this year's Derby...
Grade 3 winner Home Run Kitten (Kitten's Joy) has placed in his last three
against graded rivals and on Saturday will attempt to return to the winner's
circle in the $100,000 San Simeon S. (G3) at Santa Anita Park against
seven rivals. The David Hofmans-trained four-year-old closed out 2014 with a
close neck second in the Mathis Brothers Mile S. (G2) and has been third in his
two starts this season, the Frank E. Kilroe Mile S. (G1) and Arcadia S. (G2),
both at a mile. Home Run Kitten cuts back to 6 1/2 furlongs on Santa Anita's
downhill turf for the first time since an 11th-placing in the Breeders' Cup Turf
Sprint (G1) and a nose victory in the Eddie D S. (G3) last fall. Gary Stevens
took the mount for the Kilroe last out and retains the call in this spot. Joe
Talamo had been Home Run Kitten's regular rider but will stick with downhill
specialist Sweet Swap (Candy Ride) as he goes for a title defense in the San
Simeon. Also entered is Pure Tactics (Pure Prize), hero of the Clocker's Corner
S. and third in the Thunder Road S. thus far this year...
Last-out Tropical Turf H. (G3) hero Lubash (Freud) faces seven rivals on
Sunday while making his eight-year-old debut in the $100,000 Danger's Hour S.
at Aqueduct. The one-mile turf contest will be the Christophe Clement pupils
first start since taking the Tropical Turf in late November more than four
months ago. Regular rider Junior Alvarado wasn't aboard that day but takes back
the mount in the Danger's Hour as Lubash takes on Grade 2-placed dual stakes
scorer Chamois (Smart Strike) and multiple stakes victor Awesome Vision (Awesome
Keeneland will host U.S. Army Ranger Sgt. First Class Cory Remsburg, a
decorated soldier honored by President Obama in the 2014 State of the Union
Address, and other military dignitaries on Military Day at the Races on
Sunday. All active and inactive members of the military and their families
receive free general admission with a military ID. A Military Family Zone in the
North Terrace from noon to 4 p.m. (EDT) will feature free food, live music and
Santa Anita will offer mandatory payouts for the Pick 5 and the Pick 6 on
Sunday, closing day of the winter meet.
