Pletcher Might Run Two in Mother Goose

Todd Pletcher will wait until after Broadway’s Alibi and Disposablepleasure breeze on Sunday before he makes a final decision on whether he runs either or possibly both fillies in the Mother Goose.

 

“If they both breeze as well as they did last Sunday, there’s a good chance we’ll run them both, but we’ll see,” the trainer said.

 

Pletcher pondered starting E. Paul Robsham Stables’ Broadway’s Alibi, a hard-fought second in the Kentucky Oaks, in the Grade 1 Acorn on Memorial Day but decided to await the Mother Goose.

 

“She ran very hard in the Oaks and was taking a little while to recover, but she is rounding back into form,” said Pletcher.

 

Unlike the Oaks, the Mother Goose will be contested around one turn.

 

“I don’t think the mile and an eighth or the two turns were a problem [for Broadway’s Alibi in the Oaks],” said Pletcher. “She just got outrun on the day. I think she’s a pretty versatile filly; she’ll be effective anywhere from six furlongs to a mile and an eighth.”

 

Glencrest Farm’s Disposablepleasure, winner of last year’s Grade 2 Demoiselle, has been training at Belmont since finishing second to stablemate In Lingerie in the Grade 2 Black-Eyed Susan on May 18 at Pimlico.

 

Pletcher added that Mike Repole’s Caixa Eletronica, winner of Saturday’s Grade 2 True North Handicap, could make his next start in the Grade 3 James Marvin on July 20, a seven-furlong race on opening day at Saratoga Race Course.

 

“[The Marvin has] come up a really strong race the last couple of years,” noted Pletcher. “[Caixa Eletronica is] a great horse to have. You can look at any race [with him].”
