Groupie Doll Breezes Half-Mile at Gulfstream

Mucho Macho Man was joined on the track Saturday morning by Groupie Doll, the two-time Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint winner who also breezed a half-mile in preparation for the final start of her brilliant career, possibly in the Hurricane Bertie (G3) on Feb. 9.                

“It was kind of neat that she and Mucho Macho Man were standing out there together before they trained,” trainer Buff Bradley said. “Then, he took off and she went right after him.”           

The 6-year-old daughter of Bowman’s Band breezed a half-mile in 49 4/5 seconds before galloping out five furlongs in 1:02 4/5 under exercise rider Jada Schlenk.           

“She went really good. I told Jada to go between 49 and 50 (seconds). She said she had a ton of horse and telling her, ‘Whoa,’ the whole way. She went easy and galloped out good,” Bradley said. “She’s got a pretty good fitness level under her. She was at Gold Mark (Farm) and they kept her going there, so that helped. We’ve got three more works, so we’re good.”           

Groupie Doll, the reigning female sprint champion who is a lock to repeat at the 43rdEclipse Award Ceremony at Gulfstream on Jan. 18, is scheduled to be bred to Tapit following her final start.           

“This was a let’s-find-out-where-she-is work. I was pleased with her fitness level and she galloped out really strong and galloped probably another three-eighths of a mile,” Bradley said.
