Summer Front Breezes for Jamaica

Trainer Christophe Clement reported Sunday that both of his runners in the Grade 3 Noble Damsel – winner Naples Bay and fourth-place finisher Federation – returned well from Saturday’s one-mile turf race.

 

“Naples Bay is doing well and Federation came back in good order as well,” Clement said. “No further plan at the moment, we’ll enjoy it for a few days. Everything is possible. Everything is wide open.”

 

This morning Clement sent out Waterford Stable’s Summer Front to breeze a half mile over Belmont Park’s inner turf course in 51.63. Summer Front, a four-time stakes winner whose biggest victory to date came in the Grade 3 Hill Prince on June 16 at Belmont, exits a third-place finish in the Grade 1 Secretariat Stakes at Arlington Park on August 18. The trainer also worked Cheyenne Stables’ Mystical Star (five furlongs in 1:03.59), winner of the Grade 2 New York at Belmont on June 30 and exiting an eighth-place effort in Arlington’s Grade 1 Beverly D.

 

“Summer Front had a nice work this morning; it was his first since the Secretariat,” said Clement. “He finished third, and I thought he had not much racing luck. He will run in the Jamaica [Grade 1, 1 1/8 miles on October 6]. Mystical Star worked this morning as well, and she’s a possibility for the Flower Bowl [Grade 1, 1 ¼ miles on September 29]. I’m not sure about it yet, but she’s possible.”
