Mineralogist Returning in Broadway

Chester and Mary Broman’s multiple stakes winner, Mineralogist, is set to make her first start in more than a year in the $65,000 Broadway for New York-bred fillies and mares at Aqueduct Racetrack on Gotham Day, Saturday, March 5.

 

Now 4, the Seeking the Ante filly has not run since taking the Maid of the Mist on New York Showcase Day at Belmont Park in October, 2009. Prior to that, Mineralogist won the Joseph A. Gimma at Belmont and finished second in the Lucy Scribner at Saratoga Race Course, having broken her maiden on July 22 at Belmont.

 

“What’s been going on with her? What hasn’t been going on with her,” asked trainer John Kimmel from Palm Meadows in Florida. “After the Maid of the Mist, she had surgery on a knee, which was followed by a puncture wound on the same knee, which led to an infection in a lower joint and a long course of antibiotics.”

 

Mineralogist finally returned to training in late October at Niall Brennan Stables in Ocala, Florida, and has been working steadily at Palm Meadows for Kimmel since December. The trainer said the filly would have one final work on Sunday before being shipped north on Tuesday for the six-furlong Broadway.

 

“With a filly like her, the options were a two-other-than down here, or a state-bred stakes in New York,” said Kimmel. “She’s been working well; the other morning she outworked a filly [Trufast] who broker her maiden and did it handily.”

 

Kimmel added that the Bromans’ 2010 Empire Classic winner Friend Or Foe, who closed out his 3-year-old campaign by finishing fifth in the Grade 1 Hill ‘n’ Dale Cigar Mile, will have his first breeze of the year sometime next week at Palm Meadows.

 

“We’re hoping for a good year from him,” said Kimmel.
