American Sugar Eyes Martha Washington

Poindexter Thoroughbreds’ American Sugar, the runaway winner of the Dixie Belle, returned to the track for the first time Wednesday to jog. Trainer Lynn Chleborad reported that the Harlan’s Holiday filly will now be pointed toward the $75,000 Martha Washington Stakes February 9.

“She was perfect this morning,” said Chleborad. “She’s doing excellent. I was afraid not to take her back to the track because she was bouncing around, feeling so good. It’s fun to have a filly that loves to train.”

Since finishing fourth in her career debut, American Sugar is undefeated in sprint races, but only has one third place finish in three attempts at the mile distance. Chleborad is not worried about the extra distance going from the six-furlong Dixie Belle to the one-mile Martha Washington.

“Her mind has really matured,” said Chleborad. “Sometimes with fillies you have to worry about their minds going south. This filly just gets smarter and smarter.
