It's Tricky to Return in Top Flight

It's Tricky takes the 2011 Coaching Club American Oaks over Plum Pretty.

Dual Grade 1 winner It’s Tricky returns to action next Saturday at Aqueduct Racetrack in the Grade 2, $200,000 Top Flight Handicap. Trained by Kiaran McLaughlin for Godolphin Racing, the Mineshaft filly wintered in Florida and will be making her first start since a second-place finish to 3-Year-Old Filly champion Royal Delta in the Grade 1 Ladies’ Classic at Churchill Downs last November.

 

“She shipped up carrying great weight,” said McLaughlin’s assistant, Art Magnuson. “She looks really rested, and she’s been training well.”

 

It’s Tricky, who won an optional claimer and the Busher last winter over the Big A’s inner track, returned to training at Palm Meadows on December 31, most recently covering five furlongs in 1:01.89 on February 12. She will have her final serious move over Belmont Park’s training track Saturday morning.

 

Also scheduled to breeze Saturday morning is Godolphin’s Consortium, who is being pointed to the Gotham after a sixth-place finish in the Holy Bull, and Emcee, the 2-for-2 Godolphin color-bearer who will be making his stakes debut in the Grade 3, $200,000 Tom Fool Handicap on the Gotham undercard.
