Groupie Doll Back in Training at Churchill Downs

Groupie Doll, the champion female sprinter of 2012, returned to Churchill Downs on Monday after spending about three months at Indian Ridge Farm in Frankfort.
 
Trainer Buff Bradley, who owns Groupie Doll in partnership with his father Fred as well as Carl Hurst and Brent Burns, sent the 5-year-old mare home in early February after she was not training to his satisfaction at Gulfstream Park.
 
That has not been the case this time around.
 
“Is it a 180-degree turnaround from Florida? Absolutely,” Buff Bradley said. “She has really good energy and she wants to do it. I knew we were good and did not anticipate any problems bringing her back.”
 
One of the reasons Bradley was confident about his star’s return was the time spent at the farm sharing a pasture with the 12-year-old gelding Brass Hat.
 
“ ‘Brass’ was training her,” Bradley said of the previous stable star who earned more than $2.1 million in his career. “They would run for 10 minutes and Brass was so smart, he would cut the corner on her and when they were done, she was really blowing.”
 
Bradley plans to jog Groupie Doll all this month and not begin galloping until June with plenty of time to map out a campaign for 2013.
