Strong Sabin Drill for Groupie Doll

Fred and William ‘Buff’ Bradley’s 4-year-old Kentucky homebred filly Groupie Doll worked five furlongs in 1:01 2/5 Saturday morning at Gulfstream Park in preparation for a start next Saturday in the $100,000 Sabin Stakes (G3) at 1 1/16 miles in which she is expected to face 2011 Eclipse champion 3-year-old filly Royal Delta and Grade 1 winner Awesome Maria.

 

“Her work this morning was as good as any she’s had,” said trainer Buff Bradley later in the morning. “Obviously, this will be a tough spot, but this is the race we’ve been pointing for all along and we’re looking forward to it. Calvin (Borel) will fly in to ride her.”

 

A daughter of Bowmans Band, Groupie Doll was a good filly last year winning the Gardenia Stakes (G3) at Ellis Park and finishing second in photo-finishes in the $400,000 Charles Town Oaks and Raven Run Stakes (G2) at Keeneland. In two starts at this meet, she was very impressive winning a one-mile allowance on Dec. 22 and finishing second going a mile behind highly-regarded colt Boys At Tosconova on Jan. 27 when a race for fillies and mares wasn’t available.
