Gemologist Returns to Worktab

WinStar Farm’s Gemologist, winner of the Grade 1 Resorts World Casino New York City Wood Memorial in April at Aqueduct Racetrack, on Sunday posted his first workout since his 16th-place finish in the Grade 1 Kentucky Derby on May 5.

 

The 3-year-old traveled four furlongs in 49.42, and trainer Todd Pletcher said the colt is likely to make his next start in the Grade 2 Jim Dandy on July 28 at Saratoga Race Course.

 

“The Jim Dandy is our target at the moment, unless something happens and we switch gears for the Haskell [Grade 1, July 29, Monmouth Park], but we’re pointing for that weekend,” said Pletcher.

 

The Kentucky Derby was the first career loss for Gemologist, who also has a win in the Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club to his credit. In the Derby, the son of Tiznow raced three wide in fifth for the first six furlongs before retreating.

 

Pletcher said Glencrest Farm’s Disposablepleasure came out of her second-place finish in yesterday’s Grade 1 Mother Goose in good shape and will train up to the Grade 1 TVG Coaching Club American Oaks on July 23 at Saratoga.

 

Disposablepleasure entered the Mother Goose off a second to stablemate In Lingerie in the Grade 2 Black-Eyed Susan on May 18. In Lingerie, owned by Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners and Gary Barber, turned in a 48.61 four-furlong breeze on Sunday. Like Disposablepleasure, In Lingerie is expected to make her next start in the TVG Coaching Club, Pletcher said.

 

Mike Repole’s Stay Thirsty, winner of the 2011 Grade 1 Travers, will breeze on Monday as he prepares for the July 2 Grade 2 Suburban, Pletcher said. Caixa Eletronica, also owned by Repole, went four furlongs in 48.84 on Sunday as he works toward a start in the Grade 3 James Marvin on July 20, opening day at the Spa.

Indeed! I am excited to see if he has gotten better since the Derby and to see him and Rags race each other this summer.
  • AfterHours · IMO, I think Gem would dominate in the JD. His only competition would be Paynter, but I think he does a pretty good job at rating just off the pace. · 763 days ago
Other people may not think this colt is anything special, but I'm certainly excited to have him back in business. I've been a fan since day 1 with Gem.
