Phola Tunes Up for Ballston Spa

SaratogaLogo
Phola tuned up for her expected start in Saturday’s Grade 2 Ballston Spa with a late-morning work over the Oklahoma training track turf course. With jockey Ramon Dominguez up, the 4-year-old Johannesburg filly breezed a half-mile in 49.25.

 

“It looks like she handled the soft ground well, which she has done in the past,” said Todd Pletcher, who trains Phola for Graydon Patterson. “I’m happy with it.”

 

Phola began her 2010 campaign with three straight wins before being beaten a half-length by Proviso in the Grade 1 Just A Game at Belmont Park on June 5. In her next start, she finished sixth, beaten just 1 ¼ lengths, behind Proviso in the Grade 1 Diana on July 31.
