Beverly D Distance Helps Check The Label

Check the Label and jockey Ramon Dominguez win the Sands Point at Belmont Park in Elmont NY.

Beverly D. starter Check The Label, owned by Lael Stables, will likely carry the banner of the barn for 2011 Kentucky Derby-winning trainer Graham Motion after he announced that Secretariat Stakes candidate Crimson China is expected to run in Friday’s Hall of Fame Stakes at Saratoga. 


While the two worked together at Fair Hill on Monday, Motion is quite pleased with the preparation of his 4-year-old filly by Stormin Fever. 


“I brought her back a bit quick in her last race at Parx,” said Motion.  “We are pleased with how she has been since and want to get her back to her Grade I form from last year.” 


In 2010 Check The Label recorded four consecutive graded stakes wins on grass, capped by the Grade I Garden City at Belmont. 


“At this point in her career,” Motion said, “getting her over extra distance seems to be the right move to get her back on track, and this race should suit her well.”
