Jerkens proud of Emma's Encore

Hall of Fame trainer H. Allen Jerkens reported Sunday morning that both he and Emma’s Encore exited her 38-1 win in the Grade 3 Victory Ride in fine fettle.

“They always seem to be proud in the morning after they’ve won,” said Jerkens. “It’s your own reading into it, probably. Most likely they do the same thing when they lose. Every once in a while they jump around in the pen even when they finish dead last.”

Jerkens said Emma’s Encore, 3-1-1 in six starts since joining Jerkens’ barn in Florida over the winter, will likely make her next start at Saratoga Race Course. The trainer said he would consider the Grade 1, $300,000 Prioress at six furlongs on August 4 and the Grade 1, $500,000 Test at seven furlongs on August 25 for the 3-year-old Florida-bred daughter of Congrats.

“If she’s doing well,” he added.

Jerkens has had success in both races, having won the Test with Swap Fliparoo (2006), Society Selection (2004) and November Snow (1992) and the Prioress with House Party (2003) and Classy Mirage (1993).
