Tannery Marquee Name in Glens Falls

First run in 1996, the Glens Falls is the final graded turf stakes of the meet, for fillies and mares 3 years old and up going 11 furlongs over the inner turf course.

 

A field of 15 was entered led by Tannery, who is wheeled back by trainer Alan Goldberg 16 days after the 4-year-old Dylan Thomas filly closed to be fourth against males in the Grade 1 Sword Dancer Invitationalon August 17 at Saratoga.

 

Owned by Richard Santulli, Tannery was a Group 3 winner last year in Ireland  who ran third in the Grade 1 Garden City in her stateside debut. Her lone victory this year came in the Grade 2 Sheepshead Bay on May 25 at Belmont Park.

 

Castellano will ride Tannery, the 2-1 program favorite, from post 8.

 

Angel Terrace, trained by Hall of Famer Jonathan Sheppard for Augustin Stable, hails from the same connections that captured the 2011 Glens Falls with Emerald Beech.

 

A 4-year-old chestnut daughter of Hall of Famer Ghostzapper, Angel Terrace was fourth of seven, beaten 3 ¼ lengths, in the 1 ½-mile Waya on August 5 at Saratoga. Winless in four starts this year, Angel Terrace came from off the pace to take the Grade 3 Valley View last October at Keeneland by a nose.

 

On Wednesday, Angel Terrace tuned up for the Glens Falls with a five-furlong breeze in 59.70 seconds over the Tapeta surface at the Fair Hill Training Center in Maryland.

 

"[The Waya] was a rough race," Sheppard said. "She definitely had a troubled trip; I think she maybe could have been second. Off of that, I think it's worth a shot. She's run very good over a distance of ground. She's had a nice spacing between her races, and she seems fine. She had a nice work at Fair Hill [Wednesday] morning, so we'll give it our best shot."

 

Napravnik replaces Castellano on Angel Terrace, 6-1 on the morning line, from post 4.

 

"She has been riding well lately, and I think that her style of sort of swinging wide and coming down the middle of the stretch might suit this filly," Sheppard said. "I don't think the distance is a problem. She basically ran well in the Waya at a long distance. In fact, she's not really extremely fast, so I think the long distance helps her."

 

Also in the Glens Falls are Grade 3 Bewitch winner Strathnaver; Anjaz and Mystical Star, who ran second and third, respectively, behind Qushchi in the Waya; Layali Dubai, making her third stateside start for trainer Eoin Harty; graded stakes placed Minakshi, third in the Grade 3 Matchmaker and Grade 2 Sheepshead Bay this year; Grade 1-placed Cash for Clunkers, in just her second start this year; and White Rose, making her stakes debut.

 

Owned by Godolphin Stable, Anjaz and Layli Dubai are coupled in the wagering. Lady Cohiba, Greed and Fear, Scampering, Geisha Gal, Malibu Holiday and Swift Taylor will run only if the race is moved to the main track.
