My Princess Jess Targets Diana

SaratogaLogo

Lael Stables’ My Princess Jess, beaten less than a length by Proviso when third in the Grade 1 Just a Game on June 5, is targeting the Grade 1 Diana on Saturday, July 21, a race in which she finished fifth last year. The 5-year-old mare, 5-3-4 from 17 lifetime starts, will be seeking her first victory since taking the Grade 3 Beaugay at Belmont Park last May.

 

“She is doing very well,” said trainer Barclay Tagg of My Princess Jess, who worked five furlongs in a bullet 1:01 over the Belmont Park turf before shipping north. “She’ll work again here before the race, hopefully this weekend.”

 

Tagg added that the popular Dry Martini, now 7, will hopefully make his third career appearance at Saratoga on August 4 in a 1 1/18th mile optional claimer. The gray gelding, fifth in the 2007 and 2009 editions of the Whitney, has not run since finishing second to Quality Road in the Grade 1 Donn Handicap at Gulfstream Park on February 6.
