Gambolati Hopes Sandi is Ready

Trainer Cam Gambolati has done all the tweaking he can think of to get Sandi’s Ready into the winner’s circle at Monmouth. On Sunday, he’ll find out if it’s enough when his filly meets 11 rivals in the $100,000 Candy Éclair Stakes at five and a half furlongs on the turf.


The 4-year-old filly by More Than Ready has had a prep race here, turned in a smart work recently, and gets a new rider for the stakes as she looks for her first Monmouth victory in her 12th try here.


“This looks like the perfect distance for her,” Gambolati said, “and she’s doing great right now. I hope that’s enough.”


Sandi’s Ready tuned up for this race with a strong performance in a one-mile allowance event here May 23. She showed good speed for three-quarters of the race before tiring a bit to run fourth.


Gambolati kept her on her toes with a half-mile drill in :49 flat on June 6, one of the best moves on the tab.


On Sunday, she’ll go to the post with a new rider, Francisco Maysonett, in the irons.


“She’s got some quirks, and can be funny to ride,” Gambolati said. “It’s important to have a rider who knows her. Francisco has been her exercise rider during the winter at Palm Meadows the past two years, and he knows all her tricks.”


The filly has won twice on the grass at Gulfstream and once on the Calder turf, earning $103,460 for owners Ol Memorial Stable & C.E. Glasscock.
