Nasty Rumor Ready for Judy's Red Shoes

Farnsworth Stables’ Nasty Rumor won a hard-fought half-length victory over Gary Aiken’s Callmethesqueeze in the ‘off the turf’ $75,000 Crystal Rail Stakes on Aug. 20, and the two will likely attract the most attention in a field of eight 3-year-old fillies when they meet again in the Judy’s Red Shoes Stakes.

Leading jockey Luis Saez is the regular rider on Nasty Rumor and gets the return call for trainer Marty Wolfson. The chestnut daughter of Johannesburg was winning for the third time in her last four starts at the meet, punctuated by a dull and hard to explain fifth-place finish in the Sweettrickydancer overnight on July 9 prior to the Crystal Rail. Nasty Rumor broke her maiden over the Calder turf course in early June.

Callmethesqueeze also is a threat on turf or dirt with Jose Alvarez back aboard for trainer Manny Azpurua. The daughter of Awesome Again is highly-consistent with victories on turf and dirt at the meet, including victory in the Sweettrickydancer before runner-up efforts in the Three Ring Stakes and Crystal Rail.

Also certain to attract support is M E S Stable’s Battle of Love, third as the odds-on favorite in the Crystal Rail. Jockey Ruben Silvera rides the daughter of A.P. Warrior, who had finished first in five straight races at the meet, beginning with a maiden victory for a $16,000 claiming tag and no takers on Apr. 30. She was disqualified from a win for a $32,000 claiming price on June 19.

Completing the field for the Judy’s Red Shoes are A. Clare Silva, Jr.’s Blue Angel Express, Antonio Gallardo; Edward A. Seltzer’s Paulette Caveat, Daniel Centeno; Scott Savin’s Bala Roja, Isaias Enriquez; J D Farms’ Prize Informant, Luis Jurado; and Continental Racers’ El Bendinat, Juan Leyva.
