Ziconic..I have high hopes for this champion
Winchell Thoroughbreds homebred Untapable, winner of last year's Longines Kentucky Oaks (gr. I), will ship up to Saratoga and could run in the two races for Older Mares at the track. Those races could either be the G3 Shuvee on August 1st or the G1 Personal Ensign on August 29th, or possibly both. Trainer Steve Asmussen says he likes the way Untapable looks in her works and hopes a trip to the Spa can turn her fortunes around as she has lost 2 out of her last three races. Article on DRF
