Cash Is Queen Okay After Beaumont Incident

Trainer Stephen Lyster said that Cash Is Queen came out of her adventuresome run in Sunday’s Beaumont Stakes Presented by Keeneland Select (G2) “a little banged up” after hitting the rail on the backstretch and nearly unseating jockey Robby Albarado.

“She whomped herself pretty good,” Lyster said of Cash Is Queen, who tried to duck into the gap on the main track after leaving the chute for the Beard Course of seven furlongs, 184 feet. “She was pretty tough to try to run through the race.”

The Beaumont was only the third start for Cash Is Queen, who is owned by Richard Santulli. She wound up 10th in the field of 11 after winning her first two starts at Turfway Park.

“It is a shame, because we thought she had a big chance in there,” Lyster said. “We will give her time to recover and then get with Mr. Santulli about where to go next.”

Beaumont winner Ciao Bella Luna left Keeneland early Monday morning to return to her Southern California base at Betfair Hollywood Park. Ciao Bella Luna won by 2 ½ lengths over Magical Moon, who set the pace before yielding in mid-stretch.

“She’s a nice filly that needs to win a stake,” trainer Al Stall Jr. said of Magical Moon, who finishing third in last year’s Darley Alcibiades (G1). “For now, I’d probably look for a non-winners of two (lifetime) allowance and I may try her on the dirt one more time.”
