Pacific Ocean Targets Forego

Pacific Ocean, front-running winner of Friday’s Grade 3 James Marvin, and So Many Ways, heroine of the Grade 3 Schuylerville, came out of their races in fine fettle, their connections reported this morning.

 

Chip Dutrow, assistant to Pacific Ocean’s trainer Rick Dutrow, Jr., said the the 5-year-old Ghostzapper gelding was “just super” Saturday morning. The Grade 1 Forego on September 1 is the likely next target for Pacific Ocean.

 

Rick’s brother Tony, who trains So Many Ways for Maggi Moss, said the 2-year-old filly looked “phenomenal” and added that he hoped her victory could be the start of something special.

 

“She ate every little grain in her tub,” said the trainer. “I was real excited about the Schuylerville – why wouldn’t I be? – but I really hoped that this is a filly that can do a lot better than the Schuylerville. In her first start, she was clearly superior to her competition. The preparation that went into that race was very, very little. When she came out of that race and trained for the Schuylerville, she moved forward by leaps and bounds, and I knew I had something way better than average on my hands.”

 

So Many Ways will be pointed toward the Grade 1 Spinaway on September 2, he said.

 

In the interim, Dutrow’s next major objective is preparing Grace Hall for the Grade 1 Alabama on August 18.

 

“We’re excited about Grace Hall coming in for the Alabama,” he said of Grace Hall, who won last year’s Spinaway and most recently was victorious in the Grade 2 Delaware Oaks. “That will be the big thing our stable has to achieve this year. I gave her a week off after the race. She’ll go back into training tomorrow, and we’ll pay attention to the details and make a decision when to bring her.”
