Laragh works toward Comely
Laragh is expected to make her seasonal bow in the Comely
LARAGH (Tapit) worked five furlongs in 1:00 1/5 handily under exercise
rider Simon Harris on Sunday over the fast main track at Belmont Park in
an expected start in next Saturday's Comely S. (G2) for
three-year-old fillies over one mile at Aqueduct. It was the fastest time of six workouts for that distance.
Winner of the Hollywood Starlet S. (G1) on December 13, Laragh will make her
2009 debut for trainer John Terranova II. The gray has won
three of six
starts with one third. She also captured the Jessamine S. on grass last fall and
was third in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1).
"We freshened her up after she ran in California -- she spent some time down in
Florida and we brought her home to New York about three weeks ago," said Tonja
Terranova, wife of trainer John Terranova. "She's been training great and
on target for Saturday."
Another expected Comely starter, DON'T FORGET GIL (Kafwain), worked four
furlongs over the Belmont main track in :47, the top-ranked of
workouts for the distance. The Mark Hennig charge won the Florida Oaks (G3) at
Tampa Bay Downs by four lengths in her last start. She also owns a victory in
the East View S. over Aqueduct's inner dirt in December.
