Turbulent Descent Ready for Acorn

California-based Turbulent Descent, who won the Grade 1 Santa Anita Oaks on March 5 and traveled east to win Keeneland’s Grade 2 Beaumont by five lengths on April 17, will log more frequent flier miles when she invades New York to compete in the Grade 1, $300,000 TVG Acorn for 3-year-old fillies at one mile. Trained by Mike Puype for Blinkers On Racing Stable, the daughter of Congrats has five victories from six starts and is seeking her third Grade 1, having also won the Hollywood Starlet in December.

 

Victoria’s Wildcat has won three straight for owner Bob Bayer and trainer Bob Hess, Jr., including the Grade 3 Eight Belles at Churchill Downs on May 6. Her Smile and It’s Tricky are also probable for the race, and they could be joined by Snow Fall, according to Andrew Byrnes, stakes coordinator for The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA).
