She Be Wild Works at Gulfstream

Nancy Mazzoni’s 3-year-old filly She Be Wild, an Eclipse Award finalist following her victory in the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1), was credited with a half-mile workout in 50 3/5 Thursday morning at Gulfstream Park as she continues her preparation for another campaign.

“I got her faster,” said trainer Wayne Catalano, who will travel to California for Monday night’s Eclipse Award Dinner. “I got my tux yesterday. I think she should win it. She went out there and beat that other filly on her home track (finalist Blind Luck, 3rd in Breeders’ Cup).

“The goal for her (She Be Wild) is the Ashland at Keeneland and the (Kentucky) Oaks (Churchill Downs on Apr. 30). We’ll get her started here. There are several options next month on the main track or possibly turf,” said Catalano, who guided the career of 2006 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies winner and Eclipse champion Dreaming of Anna.

She Be Wild is a daughter of leading freshman sire Offlee Wild who won her first three starts at Arlington Park, including the Arlington-Washington Lassie (G3), she finished second by a half-length in the Alcibiades (G1) at Keeneland for her lone defeat prior to winning the Juvenile Fillies by three-quarters of a length over Beautician with Blind Luck another head back in third.

While She Be Wild was prominent on the Gulfstream work tab Thursday morning, a notable name on the Palm Meadows list of workouts for the morning included William S. Farish and partners’ 6-year-old Grasshopper, timed five furlongs in 1:01 flat for trainer Kiaran McLaughlin.

Grasshopper is best known for finishing second to Street Sense in the 2007 Travers Stakes (G1) at Saratoga for his previous trainer Neil Howard. A Kentucky homebred by Dixie Union, Grasshopper hasn’t run since finishing sixth in the Ben Ali Stakes (G3) at Keeneland on Apr. 19.        

McLaughlin also has Farish and partners’ 5-year-old Mambo in Seattle at Palm Meadows getting ready for a 2010 campaign. The son of Kingmambo was runner-up in the 2008 Travers also for Howard, beaten a nose by Colonel John. Mambo in Seattle was last seen finishing third in an allowance race at Churchill Downs on May 24.

“Both of them are up to working five-eighths,” said McLaughlin Thursday morning, who will be running them for the first time when they return. “There are no specific targets for either one at this point, except that we hope they will get going again down here some time this winter.”
