Groupie Doll Resumes Training in Kentucky

Groupie Doll has resumed training at Churchill Downs following a brief vacation at trainer Buff Bradley’s Indian Ridge Farm in Frankfort after her record-breaking performance in the Humana Distaff (Grade I) beneath the Twin Spires on Kentucky Derby Day.

“She put on a few pounds and she looks great,” Bradley said. “We’re pointing to the Ballerina (GI at Saratoga on Aug. 24).”

In her time at Indian Ridge Farm, Groupie Doll was turned out in a paddock with Brass Hat, a multiple graded stakes winner, including the Donn Handicap (GI) at Gulfstream Park, who retired last spring with 10 victories and $2,173,561 to his name.

Groupie Doll, owned by Buff Bradley, Fred Bradley, Carl Hurst and Brent Burns, won the Humana Distaff by 7 ¼ lengths in track-record time of 1:20.44 for seven furlongs. The Ballerina also is run at seven-eighths.

“It ought to be right up her alley,” Bradley said.

The Humana Distaff gave Groupie Doll, a 4-year-old chestnut daughter of Bowman’s Band, her second Grade I victory of 2012. In her fourth start of the year, she notched a three-length win in the seven furlong Vinery Madison (GI) on the Polytrack at Keeneland.

Also a winner of the Gardenia (GIII) at Ellis Park last summer, Groupie Doll has a record of 6-3-2 from 13 starts and has a bankroll of $687,850.
