Stewart Would Love to Run Designer Legs in Spinaway

Owner Murray Valene joined trainer Dallas Stewart at the barn Monday morning following the victory via disqualification for Designer Legs in Sunday's Grade 2, $200,000 Adirondack.

The Adirondack was the third straight win for the unbeaten daughter of Graeme Hall, who was promoted to first after Who's in Town was taken down for interfering with favored Fiftyshadesofgold in the stretch.

"Murray knows her really well, and he said, 'She's a fighter,' and she is. She fought really hard," Stewart said. "It was a tough race. She got banged a little bit, but thank God she came back good. She's got one little minor scratch, but she looks good. As hard as it is to win, we got lucky."

Stewart hopes to bring Designer Legs back in the seven-furlong Spinaway for her next start.

"We would love to," he said. "We'll just train her up to the race, and, if everything's right on, we'll do it."

Stewart's Kentucky Derby runner-up Golden Soul remains on target for the Grade 1, $1 million Travers on August 24. In his most recent start, Golden Soul was seventh in the Grade 1 Haskell Invitational on July 28.

"He's doing really well, so we're just continuing on," Stewart said. "He's sharp. He's feeling good, so we'll train him right up to the race. So far, so good."

Stewart said Perfect Title, last seen running seventh of nine in the Grade 2 Jim Dandy at Saratoga on July 27, is out of action for two to three months after needing surgery to repair a leg injury suffered in his first work back.

The Perfect Soul colt was hurt following a five-furlong breeze on August 8 and was operated on the following day by Dr. Larry Bramlage, who was in Saratoga for the annual Jockey Club Round Table conference.

"He's back in his stall here," Stewart said. "We had to put a couple of screws in the cannon bone. He worked excellent; it was just one of those things. He'll go to the farm in a couple of days, when he's good enough to travel. He'll be out a few months, for sure, so we'll have time to figure it out."

Stewart said filly Irish Lute, third in the Grade 1 Prioress on July 27, remains on course for her return in the Grade 1, $500,000 Test on August 24. She worked four furlongs in 51.80 on Saturday over the Oklahoma training track.
