Nicole H will stay in NY for Correction

Nicole H, originally under consideration for the Grade 2 Barbara Fritchie at Laurel, will stay in New York to compete in the $100,000 Correction at Aqueduct on February 4, trainer Mike Hushion has revealed.

 

The Gem, Inc. color-bearer has won four of her last five starts, including Aqueduct’s Interborough on New Year’s Day. The Interborough was only her second start since her victory in the Grade 2 Distaff Handicap in April at the Big A as she had suffered a respiratory infection following the race. The Correction, like the Interborough, is a six-furlong race on the inner track.

 

“She worked all right [after the Interborough], she looks great, and her weight is great,” said Hushion. “She’s as big as a house.”

 

Hushion believes keeping Nicole H in New York is the best way to ensure the 5-year-old daughter of Mr. Greeley remains healthy in 2012.

 

“We were thinking about [going to the Barbara Fritchie],” said Hushion. “We went back and forth about that. Right now, with the problems she had last year with the respiratory infection, we thought we might be better off if we stayed home for the winter.”

 

Hushion said his long-term plans for Nicole H include a title defense in the Distaff in April.

 

The probables for the Correction also include Golden Mystery, Honchis’n Ponchis, Streaker, and Winning Move. Cinco de Mayo Mio, Love That Dance, and Smart Stride are possible.
