Hot Summer Sticking to Sprint Races

Harold L. Queen’s Hot Summer was reported to have exited her victory in Saturday’s Grade 3, six-furlong Victory Ride presented by Jose Cuervo in good shape, trainer David Fawkes said Sunday morning.


Fawkes said he thought Hot Summer, who was cutting back in distance off a third in the Grade 2 Black-Eyed Susan in May, would get a good set up in yesterday’s race, and the trainer was glad it unfolded according to plan.


“She ran a huge race, and she came out of it great,” said Fawkes. “It was a very tough race – very competitive. I thought the cutback was beneficial. When the past performances came out online before we even entered, I saw there was a lot of speed, and when the race came out I was very happy. I thought it’d really be beneficial for her.”


Fawkes said Hot Summer’s next start will likely be in another sprint.


“There’s a race at Charles Town worth $400,000 going seven-eighths [Charles Town Oaks, September 17],” said Fawkes. “The only issue with the extra turn is that she ran off in the Black-Eyed Susan. She was so keen, and there was no speed in the race at all.”
