Glencrest Farm’s Jamaican Smoke, second in the Grade 3 Victory Ride on July 7 at Belmont Park, tuned up for her upcoming engagement in the Grade 1 Prioress on August 4 with a four-furlong breeze on Saturday over Saratoga’s main track.

 

With exercise rider Niall Terry aboard, Jamaican Smoke went the distance in 49.51 seconds.

 

In the Victory Ride, Jamaican Smoke put away Agave Kiss after dueling with the odds-on favorite, then yielded to Emma’s Encore in deep stretch. The Victory Ride was Jamaican Smoke’s fourth career start.

 

“She ran well [in the Victory Ride]. We were very pleased,” said trainer Eddie Kenneally. “She got caught up in a speed duel but didn’t quit in the lane. She was very gallant and kept running to the wire. She’s an inexperienced filly, but that race should help her from an experience standpoint.”

 

Prior to the Victory Ride, Jamaican Smoke won a Churchill Downs allowance by 4 ¼ lengths in May after having broken her maiden in April at Keeneland. She was third in her debut on March 14 at Gulfstream Park.
