The 2010 campaign by INFORMED DECISION (Monarchos) was expected to be an
exact replica of the seven-race narrative that led to her winning an Eclipse
Award as champion female sprinter, but trainer Jonathan Sheppard has called an
audible. Tuesday's $100,000 Winward S. over a mile at Presque Isle Downs will mark the first two-turn race in
the five-year-old mare's career and only her second race ever beyond seven
furlongs. The gray was fourth, beaten 15 lengths, in the Davona Dale S. (G2), a
one-turn mile, back in 2008.
