Victoria's Wildcat Ready for Mother Goose

Victoria's Wildcat, who had won three straight including the Grade 3 Eight Belles at Churchill Downs before finishing fourth in the Grade 1 TVG Acorn on June 11, is signaling to her connections that she might be ready for a quick turnaround in Saturday's Grade 1 Mother Goose.

While trainer Bob Hess, Jr. is not certain the daughter of Bellamy Road will run Saturday, he likes what she has shown him in the two weeks since the TVG Acorn.

"It's a little quick back, but she's eating well and everything has been positive so far," Hess said. "I thought she should have been third [in the Acorn]. She had trouble around the turn, and kind of went in and out, which probably cost her third. The top two were tough and it was anti-closers that day as well so, I can't complain. We're going to eyeball the weather tomorrow and any scratches, but we want to run."

Owned by Andrew Rosen et al., Victoria's Wildcat has never raced beyond a mile and her three career victories have all come at distances between six and seven furlongs. She drew the rail for the 1 1/16-mile Mother Goose and David Cohen has been named to ride.
