Ask the Moon, winner
of Saturday’s $300,000 Personal Ensign, may be pointed toward a confrontation
with top filly Blind Luck in the Grade 1 Lady’s Secret on October 1 at Santa
The $75,000 claim by Farnsworth Stables came
to Saratoga this
summer and won two Grade 1 races, the Personal Ensign and the Ruffian, for
trainer Martin Wolfson.
“I’m pleased but not surprised,” Wolfson
said. “I’ve been very high on this [mare].”
The only reason Wolfson wouldn’t put Ask the
Moon to the Grade 1, $350,000 Beldame on October 1 at
Park is he believes the 6-year-old
daughter of Malibu Moon prefers two-turn races.
Wolfson said that ultimately Ask the Moon
would point toward the Breeders’ Cup and then be sold in the November Breeding
Stock Sale at Keeneland.
“That’s been the plan all along,” Wolfson
