Trainer David Duggan has good reason to look to the future with Sentimental Lass, heroine of yesterday’s Maid of the Mist for 2-year-old New York-bred fillies.
“We were very impressed with her yesterday,” said Duggan the morning after Sentimental Lass’ hard-fought, one-length triumph. “She showed she has a lot of heart and a lot of guts. She showed she can get seven eighths and can probably go a little further. She answered a lot of questions.”
Should she train forwardly in the upcoming weeks, Sentimental Lass will make her next start in the New York Stallion Series Fifth Avenue Division at Aqueduct on November 14 before she receives a winter break.
“We’ll point toward the stakes next year,” said Duggan. “She certainly stepped up to the plate yesterday.”
