Unbridled Forever Still On Course for Alabama

Charles Fipke's Unbridled Forever is scheduled to return to the work tab Friday morning, her first breeze since finishing second in the Grade 1 Coaching Club American Oaks at Saratoga on July 20.

 

Trainer Dallas Stewart said the 3-year-old Unbridled's Song filly is still on course for the Grade 1, $600,000 Alabama on August 16. Winner of the Silverbulletday at Fair Grounds in January, she ran third in the Grade 2 Fair Grounds Oaks, Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks and Grade 1 TVG Acorn prior to the CCA Oaks.

 

"She's doing very well," said Stewart. "She's put on weight since her race and I'm very happy with that. She ran solid. I think a mile and a quarter will be good for her. She's very healthy and she's training great."

 

On Saturday, Stewart expects to work Commanding Curve for the first time since his fourth-place finish in the Grade 2, $600,000 Jim Dandy on July 26. The Grade 1, $1.25 million Travers on August 23 remains the next target.

 

"He's doing really well. The last two days have been really great for him," said Stewart. "He's eating well and taking the hard training good, just what we like to see."

 

Meanwhile, Stewart is pondering a surface switch for Golden Soul, the 2013 Kentucky Derby runner-up who most recently was last of eight in a 1 1/8-mile entry-level allowance at Saratoga on July 26. Also owned by Fipke, he is nominated to the $100,000 Alydar at nine furlongs on the main track August 17.

 

"I'm trying to talk to Chuck [Fipke] about maybe getting him on the grass," said Stewart. "He's galloping on the grass over here [at the Oklahoma training track]. He ran one time on the turf at Kentucky Downs but got injured, so I think we should give him another shot. I have to talk to Chuck to see what he thinks."
