Blueeyesintherein Makes Stakes Return

Self, Dorothy, King, Berry and Travis Morgeson V LLC’s Blueeyesintherein, winner of the 2012 Debutante (GIII) at Churchill Downs, will return in the $65,000-added Roxelana on Debutante Day seeking her second stakes victory under the Twin Spires.
 
Trained by Garry Simms, Blueeyesintherein will break from post position two with morning-line odds of 12-1 in the Roxelana, an overnight stakes named for the 2000 La Troienne (GIII) winner trained by William “Blackie” Huffman.
 
After winning her debut and the Debutante as a 2-year-old, the daughter of Magna Graduate won two of five starts as a 3-year-old including the Instant Racing at Oaklawn Park. In her only start of 2014, she ran ninth in an optional claiming race at Oaklawn.
 
“I think she’s about 80-percent right now,” Simms said. “I’m just going to get a race in her and that’s the only race that fits her that she’s eligible for. I could be wrong, she could be a little more fit and better than I think she is right now, but either way I expect her to run better than she did last time out.”
 
Blueeyesintherein will get leading Churchill Downs rider Corey Lanerie up for the first time in the Roxelana, the ninth of 10 races on Saturday’s card.
 
“I certainly don’t think putting Corey up on her will hurt,” Simms said. “I try not to look into it too far. A lot of jockeys are good riders until somebody gets in their path, and then when they have to make decisions, that’s when they really show how good they are.”
 
Other notable contenders for Saturday’s Roxelana include Winchell Thoroughbreds LLC’s Speedinthruthecity for trainer Steve Asmussen, who finished fifth in the Humana Distaff (GI) last out; Ten Broeck Farm Inc.’s Warm Breeze, last seen third in the Winning Colors (GIII) for trainer Grant Forster and Rob Auerbach and Marc Winston’s Quiet Success trained by Tom Amoss, who was runner-up in the Sugar Maple at Charles Town in her last effort.
