It's Tricky's Work Impresses McLaughlin

It's Tricky wins 2012 Ogden Phipps
Godolphin Racing’s It’s Tricky worked four furlongs in a reported “49 and change” on Saturday in what was her first breeze over the Tapeta surface at the Greentree Training Center.

 

“She didn’t go very fast, she didn’t go in company, but she went great,” said trainer Kiaran McLaughlin. “The real neat thing is that she galloped out real strongly. She often does not, so that was a real good sign.”

 

It’s Tricky is under consideration for either the Grade 1, seven-furlong Ballerina on August 24 or the Grade 1, 1 1/8-mile Personal Ensign on August 26. The 4-year-old daughter of Mineshaft is a graded stakes winner at both distances. In her most recent start, she captured the Grade 1, 1 1/16-mile Ogden Phipps Handicap around one turn on May 28 at Belmont Park.

 

“We’ll work her every week until the race, either the [Ballerina on the] 24th or the [Personal Ensign on the] 26th,” said McLaughlin. “Most likely the 26th, but you never know. There’s a chance if there’s a four-horse field in the [Ballerina] we’ll go in that direction, but we’ll most likely go long. We’ll talk with [Godolphin racing manager] Simon Crisford.”
