Jenny Wiley: Zagora Returns to Kentucky

Flaxman Holdings Ltd.’s Aruna, Martin Schwartz’s Zagora (FR) and Frank Jones Jr.’s Tapitsfly headline a field six fillies and mares entered Wednesday for Saturday’s 24th running of the Jenny Wiley (G1) at 1 1/16 miles on the turf.

 

The Jenny Wiley, won last year by Never Retreat, will go as the eighth race on Saturday’s 12-race program with a 4:42 p.m. (ET) post time. First post time Saturday is 1:05 p.m.

 

Trained by Graham Motion, Aruna will be making her 2012 debut after closing 2011 with a fifth-place finish, beaten one length, in the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf (G1) at Churchill Downs. Prior to that, Aruna won the Juddmonte Spinster (G1) here over the main track. Ramon Dominguez has the mount on Aruna, who will break from post position four.

 

Trained by Chad Brown, Zagora made her U.S. debut here in 2010 in the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup (G1), finishing second to Harmonious. She was third in last year’s Jenny Wiley and comes into Saturday’s race off two Grade 3 victories at Tampa Bay Downs. Javier Castellano has the mount on Zagora, who will break from post position two.

 

Tapitsfly, winner of the 2009 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf, comes into the Jenny Wiley off a victory in the Honey Fox (G2) at Gulfstream Park on March 18. Trained by Dale Romans, Tapitsfly will be ridden by Julien Leparoux, who won this race in 2009 with Forever Together. Tapitsfly will break from post position three and carry top weight of 120 pounds.

 

The field for the Jenny Wiley, from the inside out, is as follows: Heavenly Landing (Corey Lanerie, 118 pounds), Zagora (FR) (Castellano, 118), Tapitsfly (Leparoux, 120), Aruna (Dominguez, 118), Daisy Devine (James Graham, 118) and Bay to Bay (Garrett Gomez, 118).
