Godolphin Makes Breeders' Cup Plans

Sara Louise, third in the Grade 2 Gallant Bloom in her 2010 debut, will have her first breeze following that effort Sunday as she prepares for a return engagement in the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint at Churchill Downs on November 5.

 

Fourth in last year’s edition over the artificial surface at Santa Anita, the 4-year-old filly is one of three Godolphin representatives heading from Belmont Park to Kentucky hoping to improve on last year’s results. Joining her will be Gayego, the fourth-place finisher from last year’s Sprint who will be going in the Dirt Mile, and Grade 1 Vosburgh winner Girolamo, who will go in the Sprint after having finished 12th in the 2009 Classic.

 

Vineyard Haven, who won the James Marvin at Saratoga Race Course and was subsequently third in the Grade 1 Forego, could join Gayego in the Dirt Mile as a supplemental entry, said Godolphin assistant Henry Spiller.

 

“A final decision has not yet been made,” said Spiller. “Sheik Mohammed, Saeed [bin Suroor] and Simon Crisford [Godolphin racing manager] will determine that.”
