Agave Kiss Entered at Parx on Tuesday

Agave Kiss wins the Cicada at Aqueduct
Flying Zee Stables' Agave Kiss will make two treks outside New York in the upcoming weeks as her connections keep an eye on Grade 1 races at Saratoga Race Course.

The unbeaten 3-year-old sprinter, who bypassed the Grade 3 Comely after winning March's Grade 3 Cicada at Aqueduct, is entered in Tuesday's $75,000 Trevose, a six-furlong dash at Parx Racing. Should she exit the Trevose in good order, she'll likely head to Pimlico for the May 18 Miss Preakness at six furlongs, trainer Rudy Rodriguez said.

"[The Trevose] is a good spot," said Rodriguez. "The timing is right. We're going to run her at Parx, and then look at the Ms. Preakness. We're just trying to keep her happy and sound."

This summer, Agave Kiss will have two opportunities in New York to become a Grade 1 winner as Saratoga Race Course will present the six-furlong Prioress on August 4 and the seven-furlong Test on August 25.

"I think she can do it," said Rodriguez. "She's a talented filly, and what I have to do is try to bring her into each race the best she can be. There aren't many spots for her right now, but the [races like the Prioress and Test] are our main goals. They're just a long time from now."
