Hungry Island Finishes Garden City Work

Hungry Island, upset winner of the Grade 2 Woodford Reserve Lake Placid on August 21 at Saratoga Race Course, turned in her second work since the 1 1/8-mile turf race, covering a half-mile over the main track in 47.43 on Sunday morning at Belmont Park.


“She went like clockwork,” said Buzz Tenney, assistant to Shug McGaughey, who trains the filly for Emory Hamilton. “I think that last race was obviously her best race. All summer long we’ve seen improvement and I think there’s room for more improvement, too.”


The 3-year-old daughter of More Than Ready is headed for a rematch with Lake Placid favorite and fourth-place finisher Winter Memories in the Grade 1 Garden City at Belmont Park on Saturday, September 17. Hungry Island started her career against Winter Memories, finishing third behind the gray filly in a turf maiden race at Belmont last September, and is undefeated in her four most recent starts.
