BC Decision Pending for Heart of Destiny

Hurstland Farm and James Greene Jr.’s Heart of Destiny worked five furlongs in 1:02.60 before the morning renovation break with exercise rider Rafael Gonzalez up. The move was the 22nd fastest of 51 at the distance.


Runner-up in the Darley Alcibiades (GI) in her most recent start, Heart of Destiny is being considered for the Grey Goose Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (GI) or the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (GII).


Heart of Destiny was third in her debut on dirt at Saratoga, then broke her maiden on the grass prior to the Alcibiades over Polytrack at Keeneland.


“It is hard to say (which surface she is best on),” trainer Jim Baker said. “She has run well on all three surfaces. (Her sire) Lion Heart has mostly sprinters but the mare (Doc’s Destiny) is turf. We’ll decide by Monday. We may not find out this fall, but we’ll know what she’s best on next year.”


Baker said Heart of Destiny would work again next Saturday or Sunday.
