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