Ismene Finally Returns to Races on Friday

Undefeated Ismene is scheduled to make her first start in Friday’s sixth race after she was sidelined for treatment of a chip in her knee following victory in the California Breeders’ Championship more than a year ago.

“It was very minor,” trainer Bill Spawr said of the chip, “and we might have continued, but there was a risk that it could have led to arthritis and with a filly like this, you don’t take chances.”

Owned and bred by Stephen Ferraro, the 4-year-old California-bred daughter of Tribal Rule won her debut race at Del Mar in August of 2011, and then upset odds-on favorite Sister Moon with a front-running score in the Anoakia Stakes on Oct. 22, 2011, before leading throughout to win the California Breeders’ Champion Stakes.

Ismene has been working smartly for her return, going six furlongs Jan. 11 in a bullet 1:12 2/5.

Spawr won two races Monday with horses he owns in partnership with Tom Sanford. They also own 2011 Sprint champion Amazombie. Agapito Delgadillo rode both winners, Big Wags ($6.20) in the fifth and Cayambe ($8.20) in the sixth.
