Via Villaggio worked five furlongs Sunday morning in 1:03.60 at Del Mar and is ready the Grade 1, $600,000 Alabama for 3-year-old fillies on August 18 at the Spa.

 

The daughter of Bernardini won the Grade 3 Railbird at seven furlongs in May at Betfair Hollywood Park. In her most recent start, on July 14, Via Villaggio finished second to Grace Hall in the Grade 2 Delaware Oaks, her first race on dirt since she began her career last fall making two starts on California fair circuit tracks.

 

“We’re definitely coming,” Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer said. “It was a very nice work, nice and easy. Our rider, Corey Nakatani, worked her and we’re all ready to go.”

 

Via Villaggio is expected to arrive at Saratoga on Tuesday.
