Groupie Doll Turned Out for Three Months

GROUPIE DOLL, ridden by Rajiv Maragh and trained by William Bradley, wins the Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Sprint at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California on November 3, 2012.

Unhappy with the way Groupie Doll had been training since shipping to Gulfstream, trainer Buff Bradley and his partners have decided to turn out their Eclipse Award-winning sprinting mare for three months.

“We could not find anything conclusive, so we’re just going to give her more time. We’re going to give her three months off, we decided,” Bradley said. “We’re not going to do anything to her. We’ll just monitor her. Everything looks good on her. Her legs are cold and tight.”

Bradley expects to send Groupie Doll back to his Kentucky farm in about a week.

“People said, ‘You can still breed her this year.’ That’s not what we’re looking for. We love to race. When it’s time to breed her, we’ll breed her,” Bradley said.

“She’ll be 110 percent when she does run. When you run against the class she’s going to run against, you need to be 110 percent. She’s not 110 percent right now.”

Groupie Doll, who captured the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint (G1) at Santa Anita before losing a narrow decision to Stay Thirsty in the Cigar Mile (G1) at Aqueduct in her 2012 finale, had been tentatively scheduled to run in the Inside Information (G2) at Gulfstream on March 17.

The daughter of Bowman’s Band, if all goes well, will have a three-race fall campaign.
