Nicole H Doing Well After Correction

The morning after her dominant win in Aqueduct’s $100,000 Correction Stakes, Nicole H was showing no signs of fatigue.


“She’s very good,” said trainer Mike Hushion. “Full of herself this morning. She came out of the race really bright.”


In her start prior to the Correction, Aqueduct’s January 7 Interborough, Nicole H prevailed by a neck over Winning Image, idling slightly after making the lead in deep stretch. Both races are run at six furlongs, and Nicole H rolled home a 2 ½-length winner in Saturday’s Correction, improving her inner-track record to a perfect 4-for-4.


“We weren’t sure why she kind of hung a little bit the last couple of jumps in her last race, maybe it was something mental,” said Hushion. “Ramon [Dominguez] said he just loose-reined her [yesterday] the last sixteenth of a mile and she did it all on her own. The time wasn’t very fast, but basically she was at three-quarters to the eighth pole and sprinted to the wire.”


After Saturday’s race, Hushion mentioned that Nicole H might reappear to defend her title in Aqueduct’s Grade 2, $200,000 Distaff Handicap run over the main track at seven furlongs on April 14. As of Sunday morning, no plans for the 5-year-old daughter of Mr. Greeley had been finalized.

 

“I’m not sure where we’re going to go next; we’ll have that conversation pretty soon. I thought she was exceptionally bright this morning and yesterday in the spitbox. [The race] was almost like a sturdy three-quarter of a mile work, that was the way you’d like one to work.”
