Musical Romance Confirmed for Gallant Bloom

Trainer Bill Kaplan confirmed Friday that 2011’s Champion Female Sprinter Musical Romance will make her next start at Belmont Park and arrive on Saturday, September 15 to run in the Grade 2, $200,000 Gallant Bloom Handicap on September 22. The Gallant Bloom is run at 6 ½ furlongs.

 

With a record of 2-1-0 from five starts this year, Musical Romance exits a victory in Calder’s Grade 1 Princess Rooney Handicap on July 7 at Calder Race Course, her home track. Considered for a start in Saratoga’s Grade 1 Ballerina on August 24, the 5-year-old daughter of Concorde’s Tune skipped the race because transportation from Florida to New York proved to be a challenge.

 

“The reason we didn’t run in Saratoga or at Presque Isle [in the Presque Isle Downs Masters Stakes on September 8] was that we couldn’t find transportation,” Kaplan said by phone. “It’s cooler now, and she’s going to ship up by private van. She’s supposed to get in at 7 a.m. tomorrow.”

 

Kaplan said he would arrive in New York late next week and that his assistant, Alfredo Guzman, would travel with the mare.

 

“She’s doing very well,” Kaplan said of Musical Romance, who breezed five furlongs on Wednesday at Calder in 1:00.20 under regular jockey Juan Leyva. “I’m from New York and it will be nice to get back and run there.”

 

Kaplan has not run a horse at a NYRA track since July 1, 2008, when he had a string at Belmont Park during the spring/summer meet.
