Daisy Devine Completes First Lady Preparations

21 October. Daisy Devine and Calvin Borel win the $150,000 Pin Oak Valley View GRIII at Keeneland racecourse for owner James Miller and trainer Andrew McKeever.

James Miller’s Daisy Devine completed her major preparation for Saturday’s 15th running of the $350,000 First Lady (G1) by working a half-mile in :48.60 under jockey James Graham in a light drizzle at Keeneland Tuesday morning.

“That was good; she was just loping around there,” trainer Andrew McKeever said after the solo work on the main track.

A two-time graded stakes winner over the Keeneland turf course, Daisy Devine will attempt to join Intercontinental (2005) and Never Retreat (2011) as the only horses to win the Grade 1 Jenny Wiley and the First Lady in the same year.

Following her Jenny Wiley victory, Daisy Devine finished fifth in the Distaff Turf Mile (G2) at Churchill Downs on May 5 trailing probable First Lady rivals Hungry Island and Tapitsfly. The First Lady will be Daisy Devine’s first start in five months.

“We turned her out after that race,” McKeever said. “She had 40 days at Hunter Valley Farm. She always gets a little break and comes back when she is ready, not before. That’s just the way she is.”
