Breeders' Cup Sprint Next for Girolamo

Mission accomplished for Girolamo, who yesterday picked up his first Grade 1 victory when he won the Vosburgh by 2 ½ lengths.

 

Girolamo entered yesterday’s race having won last year’s Grade 2 Jerome Handicap, but owner Godolphin Stable was eager to further bolster his resume before the well-bred 4-year-old by A.P. Indy out of the Mr. Prospector mare Get Lucky is retired to stud.

 

“We wanted to enhance his value,” said Rick Mettee, assistant to trainer Saeed bin Suroor. “That’s why we left him in training this year.”

 

With Girolamo exiting the Vosburgh in good shape, Godolphin will now point the colt to the Breeders’ Cup Sprint on November 6 at Churchill Downs.

 

“He’ll go in the six-furlong race,’ said Mettee. “We have multiple horses who could go in the Dirt Mile, so we’re likely to send him to the Sprint.”

 

Girolamo’s victory in Vosburgh was the first North American Grade 1 success in 2010 for Godolphin, which hours later added a second Grade 1 score when Hibaayeb captured the Yellow Ribbon at Oak Tree.
