Stopshoppingmaria, second as the beaten favorite in the Frizette, returned from her effort in good order, trainer Todd Pletcher said.

 

“She looked very good this morning,” said Pletcher, adding that the Mike Repole-owned filly remained on schedule for the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies at Churchill Downs on November 4.

 

Stopshoppingmaria will be part of Pletcher’s four-horse Breeders’ Cup contingent, joining the Classic-bound Uncle Mo and Stay Thirsty and Juvenile Turf hopeful Finale.

 

Owned by Mrs. John Magnier, Michael Tabor, and Derrick Smith, Finale has won three straight, having broken his maiden on Belmont’s inner turf by 5 ¾ lengths on July 15 in his first start on the grass, taking the Continental Mile at Monmouth Park on August 20 and most recently victorious in the Grade 3 Summer Stakes at Woodbine on September 17.

 

Sunday morning, the Scat Daddy colt had his first work since the Summer Stakes, covering a half-mile on Belmont’s training track in 47.64, second-fastest of 31 at the distance.

 

All four are scheduled to depart for Kentucky on October 24, said Pletcher.
