Island Bound Pointing to Honorable Miss

Among those pointing to next Friday’s Grade 2, $200,000 Honorable Miss is the well-traveled 5-year-old mare Island Bound, a former claimer who earned her first graded stakes victory on June 2 when she rallied from seventh to win the Grade 3 Winning Colors at Churchill Downs. Subsequently fifth in Belmont’s Grade 3 Bed o’ Roses in her only off-the-board outing of 2012, the daughter of Speightstown likely will have her final prep for the six-furlong race on Sunday, said trainer Ian Wilkes.

 

“She’s really turned the corner this year,” said Wilkes. “Last year we were running her for a $30,000 tag. All of a sudden, this year she got good. She’s doing well up here, as well. I think in her last race, the inside post hurt her. They went the first quarter in :23, and that kind of left me in the jackpot.”

 

Owned by Robert T. Manfuso, Island Bound is 3-3-0 from seven starts this year with earnings of $155,075.
