Still No Decision on Astrology, Dominus

31 October 2010: Garrett Gomez and Astrology take the G3 Iroquois Stakes at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky.

Dominus and Astrology turned in separate four-furlong workouts at Saratoga Race Course on Monday, but their connections have yet to decide which of the pair will compete in Saturday’s Grade 2 Jim Dandy.

 

Winner of the Grade 2 Dwyer at Belmont Park on July 2, Dominus breezed four furlongs on the main track in 50.54, while Astrology, third in the Grade 1 Preakness on May 21 and sixth in the Grade 3 Iowa Derby on June 25, covered four furlongs on the training track in 51.31.

 

“We’re very pleased,” said trainer Steve Asmussen. “They had very easy half-miles. They traveled well and seemed to come back well.”

 

Asmussen said he’ll have further discussions with the colts’ owners before they decide which one will race in the Jim Dandy and which one will head to Monmouth Park for Sunday’s Grade 1 Haskell Invitational. Both sophomores are campaigned by Stonestreet Stables and George Bolton, with Spendthrift Farm owning an additional interest in Dominus.

 

“We’ll just wait and see how they come out of the workout [before we make a decision],” said Asmussen. “We don’t want to put the cart ahead of the horse. We’ll discuss it with the group and go from there.”

 

In addition, J. Kirk & Judy Robison’s Wine Police, one of Asmussen’s two hopefuls for the Grade 2 Amsterdam on August 1, traversed four furlongs on the main track in 51.88.

 

“It was an easy half-mile for him as well,” said Asmussen.

 

Zayat Stables’ Justin Phillip, who is also being pointed toward the Amsterdam, will likely have a single blowout in preparation for next Monday’s race, according to Asmussen.
