Terranova's Stars Breeze

SaratogaLogo

Stakes winners Franny Freud, Wall Street Wonder and General Maximus all breezed Monday for trainer John Terranova as they look toward their next starts.

 

The New York-bred Franny Freud put in her second timed work – five furlongs in 59.28, third fastest of 72 at the distance on the main track – since winning the Grade 1 Prioress at Belmont Park on July 4 and is on track for a planned run in the Grade 1 Test on August 7.

 

“She went awesome,” Terranova said of the Freud filly, whom he trains for Paul Pompa, Jr. “She’s like supernatural, not from here. She trains amazing. Right now we’re right on target for the Test.”

 

General Maximus, meanwhile, covered the same distance in 1:00.60 with an eye toward the Grade 2 Amsterdam on August 2. Winner of the New York Stallion Stakes Times Square Division on May 2, the son of Freud was most recently second behind Grade 2 Jim Dandy Hopeful Friend Or Foe in the seven-furlong Mike Lee for New York-breds on June 20.

 

“I thought the Mike Lee was a pretty strong race, and I think Friend Or Foe is probably one of the better 3-year-olds around,” Terranova said. “We’ll see how he goes in the Jim Dandy, stretching out, but he’s very talented and I have a lot of respect for him. The Amsterdam is always a tough race, but if General Maximus shows up and runs his race, he should be very competitive in there.”

 

General Maximus is expected to face Backtrack, Catalan, Discreetly Mine, Essence Hit Man, In Jack’s Memory, Make Note and Safe Trip in the Amsterdam.

 

Finally, Grade 3 Toboggan winner Wall Street Wonder breezed a half-mile in 47.75 over on the Oklahoma track. Terranova said he had no firm plan for the colt.

 

“He’s nominated to the Vanderbilt, but I’m just kind of waiting on him to tell us,” Terranova said. “He’s struggled a little bit with the heat this summer. He’s not a horse that enjoys it at all and it really fries him. He’s doing great though, he looks well, and this weather is perfect – it’s what we need.”
