Strike the Bell Fit and Ready

Trainer David Donk pronounced chestnut 5-year-old mare Strike the Bell fit and ready for the Grade 1, $400,000 The Foxwoods Just a Game on Saturday, the ninth race and second leg of the $1 Million Guaranteed All Graded Stakes Pick 4.

 

While 12-1 on the morning line, Strike the Bell has some strengths on display. She won the Grade 3 Noble Damsel Stakes at Belmont last September with a last-to-first move at the mile distance of the Just a Game. She also retains the services of Eclipse Award-winning jockey Ramon Dominguez, who was aboard in three of her five career victories.

 

Further, Strike the Bell has won her second start off a layoff the past two times she has taken breaks.

 

“She’s had one race off the layoff a week ago and was second to Much Rejoicing,” Donk said. “Ramon’s back up on her and suits her well, so it’s good. It’s a great race.”
