Redbud Road Ready for My Dear Girl

Jacks or Better Farm and trainer Stanley Gold’s team of 2-year-old homebreds continue to gear up for the rich Florida Stallion Stakes finales to be run on the $850,000 Festival of Sun program at Calder Casino & Race Course on Sat., Oct. 15 as Redbud Road worked six furlongs in 1:13 4/5 Sunday morning for her role as one of the favorites in the $300,000 My Dear Girl Division at 1 1/16 miles.

 

A chestnut daughter of Awesome of Course, Redbud Road was the early leader of her division here this season as she won the $100,000 JJ’s Dream Stakes in early July and the $75,000 Desert Vixen Division of the FSS in early August before a heart-breaker nose loss when second to Harold Queen’s Queen Drama in the $125,000 Susan’s Girl Division as the favorite last out on Aug. 27.

 

Redbud Road will get the rematch with Queen Drama in the My Dear Girl and will also face Jacks or Better-owned stablemate Awesome Belle in the race, the latter with solid credentials of her own. Also by Awesome of Course, Awesome Belle finished third in the Susan’s Girl with trouble in the race. Awesome Belle worked three-quarters Friday morning in 1:13 1/5.

 

The Jacks or Better team has the favorite for the $300,000 In Reality ‘open’ Division finale of the FSS series, also at 1 1/16 miles, in Fort Loudon, a colt by Awesome of Course that will bid for a sweep after capturing the $75,000 Dr. Fager and $125,000 Affirmed divisions. He worked three-quarters Friday morning in 1:13 2/5 and also could have a Jacks or Better running mate in Argentine Tango.

 

A son of Black Mambo, Argentine Tango chased Fort Loudon home second in both the Dr. Fager and Affirmed, beaten two lengths in the latter after a slow start. Argentine Tango also had finished second in the $100,000 Frank Gomez Memorial before the Stallion Stakes.

 

 

In addition to the two Florida Stallion Stakes finales on the Festival stakes line-up will be the $100,000 Spend a Buck Handicap (G3) for 3-year-olds and up at 1 1/16 miles with Quantum Racing Team #1’s 6-year-old gelding Mambo Meister, a local favorite leading the field; and renewals of the $75,000 Tropical Park Derby and $75,000 Frances A. Genter Stakes for 3-year-olds at 1 1/16 miles on turf, the latter for fillies.
