Jerkens Seeks Fifth Beaugay

Hall of Fame trainer H. Allen Jerkens, who has won four editions of the Beaugay, will be trying for a fifth in tomorrow’s 1 1/16-mile turf race with Hal Snowden Jr.’s Bet On the Blue, beaten a head by Miss Blakely in her 2011 debut in the South Beach at Gulfstream Park.


“She ran well in that race, we’ll see what happens Saturday,” said Jerkens of the 4-year-old daughter of E Dubai, who was second to Aruna in the Pebbles last October in her lone appearance at Belmont Park.


Overall, Bet On the Blue has won 11 of her 15 starts, for earnings of $201,640.


Jerkens, who turned 82 on April 21, won the eighth running of the Beaugay with Thirty Flags in 1984, took the 1987 edition with Give A Toast, saddled Summer Secretary to win in 1991 and saddled Caress to victory in 1995.
