Sharp Dirt Workout for Red Desire

Red Desire (Jpn) is a Group 1 winner on turf in her native Japan, and she notched a Group 2 win against males on the synthetic Tapeta Footings surface at Meydan Racecourse this March. On Saturday, the four-year-old filly appeared at home on the dirt at Churchill Downs in a sharp five-furlong workout in 1:00.


Jockey Kent Desormeaux rode the Manhattan Cafe filly in preparation for a start in either the Emirates Airline Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf (G1), her connections’ listed first preference, or Emirates Airline Breeders’ Cup Turf (G1).


Desormeaux also was aboard in Red Desire’s third-place finish in the Flower Bowl Invitational Stakes (G1) on October 2 at Belmont Park in her North American debut.


She impressed Desormeaux on Saturday as the filly recorded the second fastest time of 41 workouts at the distance.
