Believe You Can Readying for Mother Goose

Believe You Can and jockey Rosie Napravnik win the Kentucky Oaks
The Grade 1, $300,000 Mother Goose on June 23 is shaping up to be a rematch between the Kentucky Oaks top two finishers, with the winner, Believe You Can, and the runner-up, Broadway’s Alibi, aiming for the 1 1/16-mile race.

 

Believe You Can, a Brereton C. Jones homebred, has remained at Churchill Downs since the Oaks and will depart for New York by van Saturday and arrive at Belmont early Sunday, according to trainer Larry Jones. She’ll breeze at Belmont either Monday or Tuesday, the trainer said.

 

“The biggest thing is getting her there,” said the trainer. “There are no flights available. If she handles the trip and handles the track, we’re running.”

 

Jones noted how Believe You Can already has experience on the Belmont main track from her victory in the Grade 3 Tempted last October.

 

“She did well over the track last year,” said Jones.

 

In addition to Believe You Can and Broadway’s Alibi, the Mother Goose is expected to attract Contested and Zo Impressive, first and second in Memorial Day’s Grade 1 Acorn, according to NYRA stakes coordinator Andrew Byrnes.

 

“[The Mother Goose] looks like a good one, with the top four or five fillies in the country,” said Jones. “We’ve never ducked anybody, otherwise we never would have been in the Kentucky Oaks.”
