Agave Kiss Fires Bullet at Big A

Undefeated Agave Kiss worked five furlongs in a bullet 1:00.43 this morning at Aqueduct Racetrack as she continues preparations for her next start, the Grade 3, $150,000 Victory Ride on July 7. The six-furlong race for 3-year-old fillies will be making its Belmont Park debut after an eight-year run at Saratoga Race Course and will share the card with the 127th running of the Grade 2, $350,000 Suburban Handicap.

 

Agave Kiss has won all six of her starts in front-running fashion by a combined margin of 30 lengths, most recently a 5 ½-length score in the Miss Preakness at Pimlico on May 18.

 

“We’re very happy with the way she’s been doing,” said Rudy Rodriguez, who trains the New York-bred Lion Heart filly for Flying Zee Stables, LLC. “The Victory Ride is the next spot for her, and after that, we’ll keep our fingers crossed and point for the [Grade 1, $300,000] Prioress at Saratoga [August 4].”
