Mrs. John Magnier’s Turbulent Descent completed her final preparations for Friday’s Grade 1, $500,000 Ballerina Stakes with a swift four-furlong move over the Saratoga main track. Last year’s Grade 1 Test winner covered the distance in 47.91 seconds.

“She seems like she’s sitting on go,” trainer Todd Pletcher said of the 4-year-old Congrats filly.

The Ballerina will be Turbulent Descent’s first start for Pletcher. She previously was trained by Mike Puype for Blinkers On Racing Stable et al, and under his care won three Grade 1 races, including the Test. The filly has made just one start this year, winning the Desert Stormer Handicap on June 17 at Hollywood Park.

Pletcher added that the three horses he has nominated for the Grade 1 Personal Ensign – Green Hills Farm’s Love and Pride, M.V. Deegan’s Maristar and E. Paul Robsham Stables’ R Gypsy Gold – would breeze Monday morning before a decision will be made about which will start in next Sunday’s race.
