Madame Giry Heading to Gulfstream Park

Connections of Madame Giry and Bounding Bi, the top two finishers in Friday’s $100,000 Buffalo Trace Franklin County, reported their runners came out of the 5 ½-furlong grass test in good order.

“She ate up well and is none the worse for wear,” Madame Giry’s trainer, Cam Gambolati, said Saturday morning. “We are going to try to ship Wednesday. Gulfstream opens Thursday and she might be one of the first ones in there.”

The 2 ½-length victory in the Buffalo Trace Franklin County was the fifth in a row for Madame Giry.

“She is going to get a little break because there is really nothing for her right now,” said Gambolati, who was celebrating his first Keeneland victory. “This is the time to do it. We will probably wait for something at Gulfstream (whose meet begins December 1).”

One possible target on Madame Giry’s radar in 2013 is Keeneland’s Vinery Madison (G1) at seven furlongs on the main track.

“She galloped well on the main track Thursday,” Gambolati said. “That race in the spring, the (Vinery) Madison is a Grade 1 and that would be the time to try it.”

While Madame Giry was sticking around for a few more days, Bounding Bi was on a van before 7 o’clock and headed back to Philadelphia.

“She gave us a thrill yesterday,” trainer Louis Linder Jr. said. “That horse that beat her is no slouch.”

Linder said Bounding Bi came out of the race fine and most likely would head to Tampa Bay Downs in early December. Like Gambolati, he also had a race in mind next spring at Keeneland for a possible return trip to Central Kentucky: the Giant’s Causeway at 5 ½ furlongs on the turf.
