Gallant Bloom Next Spot for Emma's Encore

Grade 1 Prioress winner Emma’s Encore will bypass Saturday’s Grade 1, $500,000 Test and will instead target the Grade 2, $200,000 Foxwoods Gallant Bloom on September 22 at Belmont Park , Hall of Fame trainer Allen Jerkens said Monday.

 

Jerkens said he was uncomfortable running Emma’s Encore back in the Test off her wins in the Grade 3 Victory Ride on July 7 at Belmont and in the Prioress on August 4.

 

“The Test is back a little bit quick,” said Jerkens, who trains the 3-year-old filly for Brenda Mercer and Peter Berglar. “It’s hard to turn down a $500,000 race, but we’ll wait for the Gallant Bloom. She’s a nice filly, and I hope she’s around for a while.”

 

The seven-furlong Test is for 3-year-old fillies, while the 6 ½-furlong  Foxwoods Gallant Bloom is open to fillies and mares 3-years-old and up.
