Callaghan Has Two Ramser Hopefuls

Simon Callaghan plans to double-team his rivals in next Sunday’s Grade III Harold C. Ramser Sr. Stakes for 3-year-old fillies at one mile on turf.

Callaghan, who saddled Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf contender Dubawi Heights to win the Grade I Yellow Ribbon Stakes on Oct. 1, has Imperialistic Diva and Up In Time ready to go in the Ramser.

“Up In Time won a Grade II at Del Mar (the San Clemente on July 24) and she’s training great here,” Callaghan said. “We’re very happy with her going into this race. I’m sure she’ll go there with a terrific chance.”

Up In Time, an English-bred daughter of Noverre, has not raced since Aug. 20, when she finished seventh, beaten less than five lengths after a wide trip in the Grade I Del Mar Oaks.

“Imperialistic Diva has only run once in the U.S. and was second and I think she’s improved from the experience,” Callaghan said of the Irish-bred chestnut. “She’s got some pretty nice form in Europe in stakes company, so although she’s going to be a longer price (than Up In Time), I think she’ll run a nice race.”

Probable for the Ramser: Celestial Kitten, Patrick Valenzuela; Entrustment, David Flores; Imperialistic Diva, no rider; Rosehill Dew, Brice Blanc; Sarah’s Secret, Mike Smith; and Up In Time, no rider.
