Blame Tunes Up for Whitney

Blame, winner of the Grade 1 Stephen Foster, also worked Sunday morning for the Whitney, going an easy half-mile under jockey Garrett Gomez. Working in company with an unnamed 2-year-old filly, the Arch colt was timed in 49.02, which ranked 34th of 67 at the distance.

 

“Our plan in coming up here was to have all his major works completed at Keeneland,” said Al Stall, Jr., who trains Blame for Adele Dilschneider. “He worked in company because we wanted him to get a little ‘racier.’ Our main goal is still November 6 [Breeders’ Cup Classic].”

 

Blame will carry a four-race win streak into the Whitney, which is a “Win and You’re In” race for the Breeders’ Cup Classic. In addition to the Stephen Foster, which was his first Grade 1, Blame also won the Fayette and Clark Handicaps, both Grade 2 events, to close out his 2009 season and opened his 2010 campaign with a win in the Grade 3 William D. Schafer at Pimlico.
