Spinaway Next for Le Mi Geaux

SaratogaLogo

Le Mi Geaux came out of her surprise Opening Day victory in the Grade 3 Schuylerville in fine form, reported trainer Rick Dutrow, Jr., and most likely will make her next start in the Grade 1 Spinaway on September 5.

 

“I spoke with her owner [Lansdon B. Robbins, III] in Kentucky after the race, and yes, he said, ‘I told you so’,” said Dutrow, who entered the race only at Robbins’ behest. “I guess [the Spinaway] should be [her next start]. She’ll meet much tougher fillies in the Spinaway.”

 

In earning her second victory from three starts – and giving sire First Samurai his first stakes winner – Le Mi Geaux completed the six furlongs in a tepid 1:13.67 over the sloppy track, the slowest at the distance in the stakes’ 92-year history.

 

“I didn’t even look at the time,” said Dutrow. “We were lucky enough to win the race, so I don’t want to dissect it. We were happy with her first race [a third-place finish at Churchill Downs] and her next two were great.”
