Tonalist Runs Next in Peter Pan

cclementwiki
Trainer Christophe Clement on Sunday stated his desire to run Tonalist in the Grade 2, $200,000 Peter Pan next Saturday after the 3-year-old breezed five furlongs in 1:02.12 this morning at Belmont Park. 

 

The 1 1/8-mile Peter Pan is New York's final graded stakes for 3-year-olds prior to the Grade 1, $1.5 million Belmont Stakes on June 7.

 

"He had a very nice work today," said Clement. "I have to talk to [owner Robert S.] Evans, but as long as he's comfortable with it I'd like to run him in the Peter Pan."

 

Tonalist, second to eventual Grade 1 Florida Derby winner Constitution on February 22, was originally pointed for the Grade 1 TwinSpires.com Wood Memorial on April 5 before he was withdrawn with a lung infection. He returned to the worktab on April 17 at Payson Park, breezing five furlongs in 1:03 2/5 in his only other move prior to today's workout.

 

"We gave him the time, we took care of it, a few little problems," said Clement. "He trained well at Payson and trained well this morning. I'm excited with the work. Let's go."

 

Tonalist has a single win in three starts, having broken his maiden by four lengths on January 18 at Gulfstream Park after finishing fourth in his debut in November at Aqueduct Racetrack.

 

Clement reported that all five of his entrants in Saturday's stakes at Belmont Park emerged from the race in fine fettle.

 

"So far, so good," said Clement. "Summer Front (second in the Grade 3 Fort Marcy) looks well. Speaking of Which (fourth in the Fort Marcy) looks well. Manighar (ninth in the Fort Marcy) needed the race badly, which is why he got tired, but he came out of it in good order. Orion Moon (second in the Grade 3 Beaugay) looks in good order this morning. Irish Mission (seventh in the Beaugay) wants to go further. She'll probably run a mile and three eighths in the Sheepshead Bay (Grade 2, $200,000, May 24). She finished last [in the Beaugay] but she actually ran OK."

Clement said Orion Moon likely will skip the Grade 1, $1 million Longines Just a Game on June 7. Instead, Discreet Marq could carry the Clement stable banner in the one-mile turf race for fillies and mares. 

 

"I don't think [Orion Moon] is a mile filly, so I'll probably try to train Discreet Marq for the Just a Game," said Clement. "I could stretch out [Orion Moon] for the mile-and-three-eighths Sheepshead Bay, but I think she's too strong for that, too rank."
